Baby Archie is living his best life thanks to his parents Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Upon little Archie’s birth, Markle was ready to start her brand new life as a mom. However, Archie’s birth certificate has a surprising detail about the former actress.
A Princess In Their Eyes
Markle gave birth to Archie inside London’s Portland Hospital on May 6, 2019. On the birth certificate, it calls Markle Princess of the United Kingdom. While Duchess of Sussex is her official title, the term princess does fit. She’s technically a princess through her marriage to Harry. Markle’s sister-in-law Kate Middleton is also labeled a princess on her children’s birth certificates.
The birth certificate also displays Markle’s full name of Rachel Meghan Markle. As expected, many people didn’t realize Rachel was her actual first name. For celebrities, it’s quite common to not use their real names in the public eye.
A New Chapter
Archie will be growing up differently following his parents stepping down as senior members of the royal family. The couple made the shocking announcement at the beginning of the year. The reveal came as a surprise to members of the royal family. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles were the most furious with their decision. “The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly. It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges … there really was no other option. … I’ve accepted this, knowing that it doesn’t change who I am or how committed I am,” Harry said during a private dinner in London. “But I hope that helps you understand what it had to come to, that I would step my family back from all I have ever known to take a step forward into what I hope can be a more peaceful life.” While Queen Elizabeth II approved of their choice, the couple will no longer represent her.
So Much Pressure
One major reason for their exit involved the constant negative attention from the press. Since day one, countless publications have been trying to invade the couple’s privacy. For Markle, the addition of Archie made things more hectic. Paparazzi wanted to get exclusive photos of the baby, and they’d do anything to get them. While Markle faced paparazzi while working in Hollywood, it wasn’t anywhere near this level. In the documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, Markle expressed sadness when asked about her well-being. “Thank you for asking. Not many people have asked if I’m OK, but it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes,” Markle said in the documentary. The clip made its way online, which led to #WeLoveYouMeghan trending on Twitter.
The family will be splitting their time between North America and the UK. They’ll continue to live in England’s Frogmore Cottage, but they’ll have to pay rent for it. Because of their choice, Markle and Harry will be financially independent. Unfortunately, they’ll have to repay the near $3 million renovation costs of Frogmore Cottage. An official agreement is slated to be signed sometime in the spring.
More On The Horizon
Fortunately, the future is looking brighter than ever. The couple will be launching a new non-profit organization titled Archewell. They made a surprise visit to Stanford University to discuss their forthcoming organization with professors. While they were living in Canada’s Vancouver Island, they recently moved to Los Angeles. Markle, who grew up in the area, will have no issue with showing Harry around. With Markle’s connections in Hollywood, Harry could find himself catching the acting bug.
