Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex and wife of Britain’s Prince Harry, has been listed as a Princess of the United Kingdom on the birth certificate of her son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Archie, the latest addition to the British Royal family, is seventh in line to the throne and is the first child of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The certificate revealed that the former American actress, who cited her name as “Rachel Meghan Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex”, gave birth earlier this month at London’s Portland Hospital.

It ended the mystery about where the baby was born after speculation that Meghan, who married Queen Elizabeth’s grandson a year ago, had planned a home birth at the couple’s residence on the Windsor Castle estate.

There had been media reports that the couple had made a late dash to the London hospital, because Archie was overdue although until now — though the couple have not officially disclosed any details about the birth or its location.
