Palace ‘did not dictate’ Meghan’s name change on Archie’s birth certificate

The document for her and Prince Harry' s son was mysteriously altered a month after it had been created, to replace 'Rachel Meghan' with 'Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex'.

When Harry was born on May 6 2019, the Sussexes operated out of Kensington Palace with their own staff but just days after the birth certificate was changed on June 5, they left for Buckingham Palace.

Less than a year later Harry and Meghan shockingly announced they would be stepping down as senior members of the royal household.

A spokesman for the couple who now live in a £11million mansion in Montecito, California, said: "The change of name on public documents in 2019 was dictated by The Palace, as confirmed by documents from senior Palace officials.
