Has Duchess Meghan had her first name removed from her son Archie's birth certificate? At least that's what the British "The Sun" claims, which published an alleged copy of the original document. "Rachel Meghan" is said to have been deleted from the documents. Her titles remained: "Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex".
It is said that the British royal family has never seen such a change. According to the tabloid, it could be interpreted as a tribute to Prince Harry's late mother, Princess Diana. During her lifetime she was addressed as "Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales". Others see it as a dig at the British royal family. Because Duchess Kate's first name was apparently added to the birth certificates of her three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
"Maybe that was an early part of their plan," Dickie Arbiter, a former press secretary to Queen Elizabeth II, is quoted as saying by The Sun. "Perhaps another sign that they desperately want to differentiate themselves from the royal family," said Ingrid Seward from "Majesty" magazine. Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have not yet commented on this.
Archie's birth certificate already changed in June 2019?
Archie was born on May 6, 2019, the birth was registered on May 17, according to The Sun. The change is said to be effective May 5.to have been made in June. At this point, there was already speculation about cracks in the relationship between Prince Harry and his brother Prince William. In June 2019, Meghan and Harry stepped down from joint charity The Royal Foundation.
