Meghan Markle says that Palace is behind the change in Archie’s birth certificate

Meghan Markle is setting the record straight in relation to changes made to son Archie’s birth certificate.

In a statement by Page Six as the spokesperson of the 39-year-old Duke of Sussex, Archie’s birth letter on Sunday called his given name “Rachel Meghan” a call by The Palace.

“The change of name on public documents was decided by the Palace in 2019, as confirmed by the documents of senior Palace officials. This was not requested by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex nor The Duke of Sussex, ”the statement read.

Over the weekend, an updated piece of Archie’s birth certificate surfaced online, in which The Sun of the UK highlighted changes made to Markle’s name. He is now listed as “His Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex”, while 36-year-old Harry is regarded as “Royal Highness Prince Henry Charles Albert David Duke of Sussex”.

The changes were made in June 2019, a month after Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born.
