Yup, Meghan Markle’s Name Really Isn’t On Archie’s Birth Certificate

The rumors have been confirmed: Meghan Markle‘s name is not on Archie‘s birth certificate.

According to The Sun, initially, Archie’s birth certificate referred to Meghan Markle as “Rachel Meghan Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex” but a few weeks later, “Rachel Meghan” was removed, leaving just the title “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex.”

The discovery of this name change sparked rumors that the act was a petty snub against her — revealing just how little respect she was given during her time at the Royal Palace.

In stark contrast, Kate Middleton had no issues with her name getting on the birth certificate of her children — which further pushed many down the rabbit hole or rumors.

But regardless, it sounds like Markle doesn’t want to get into it.

She quickly attempted to squash the idea that there is still bad blood between her and the Royal Family.

“The change of name on public documents in 2019 was dictated by The Palace, as confirmed by documents from senior Palace officials,” Markle’s rep told Us Weekly in a statement on Sunday, January 31 

“This was not requested by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex nor by The Duke of Sussex.”

Archie was born just one year after Markle and Harry married in May 2018 on May 6, 2019.

HIs birth was registered on May 17 and the birth certificate change was made on June 5.

And in January of 2020, the couple announced their decision to step back from the Royal Family.
