Meghan and Harry release Archie's birth certificate
It was something that was clarified by the royal couple during and after the pregnancy – when the world was left to wait a few days for their son's name and first pictures.
The speculation about where Archie was born has finally been put to rest with Friday's release of his birth certificate.
In the days leading up to birth, there was speculation in the tabloid press that Meghan would choose a home birth at Frogmore Cottage, in Windsor. Some British media later reported that she was born in London.
The certificate shows that Archie was born in Portland Hospital, a private hospital in London's West End.
A spokeswoman for the Portland Hospital said in a statement: "A great congratulation to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the birth of baby Archie."
"For the sake of patient confidentiality, we are unable to make any comments or information
Meghan's occupation is listed as princess
On the certificate is Meghan & # 39; s job listed as "United Kingdom Princess."
While Meghan has Princess as an occupation, she will never officially be called Princess Meghan, since she does not have royal blood, only direct descendants of the royal bloodline are allowed the prince and princess title followed of their first name
The royal family has broken with arcane traditions and protocol that includes one that says the wife's position in the chopping order is validated by her husband and king's blood.
So even though Meghan is the head of Princess, she is formally known as Meghan, Hert. The Infinity of Sussex – which the Queen gave to her prior to their wedding in 2018.
] Harry registered the birth
Prince Harry registered Archie's birth himself according to the certificate. It also shows that the new father took 11 days to do so – the registration date was dated May 17.
When a couple is married in the UK, only one parent is required on the register.
