The Duchess of Sussex & Son, Archie Harrison, was born on May 6 – but his birth certificate was only released today. The certificate from the Westminster registrar gives previously unknown details about the birth of the young monarch and the official occupation of Meghan. The document mentions the name of the Duchess as "Rachel Meghan Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex" and her profession as "Princess of the United Kingdom".
Meghan, a former actress who played in a number of popular American TV shows, was born as Rachel Meghan Markle, but has preferred to be known as Meghan Markle.
Even Buckingham Palace, when announcing its engagement with Prince Harry, referred to her as Mrs. Meghan Markle instead of Rachel Meghan.
The document also mentions the full name of the duke is "His Royal Highness Henry Charles Albert David Duke of Sussex" and his profession is "Prince of the United Kingdom".

The birth certificate also confirms that Meghan has delivered her baby to the luxurious Portland Hospital, which was selected by Sarah Ferguson and Victoria Beckam in the past, along with many other A-listers.
The "basic" delivery costs of the lavish hospital start at £ 15,000.
The birth of Archie was only registered by Prince Harry today, as can be seen at the bottom of the document.
The duke and duchess of Sussex have kept a number of details about the birth of their firstborn in recent days.
Archie was born 11 days ago at 5:26 am, but Buckingham Palace announced that Meghan & # 39; had taken on work in the afternoon – half an hour later to reveal that the baby had been born hours earlier and had already left for Sussex home was brought to Windsor, Frogmore Cottage.
Prince Harry later said that Archie, the eight great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II and the seventh in line for the throne, was "a little too late", which fueled speculation. Meghan had discarded her home birth plans and chose to go to a hospital.
But the royal protocol dictates that details of a royal birth are made available to the public, as happened to Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, when she delivered her three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
The birth certificates of the three children of the Cambridges also mention the occupation of the mother as "Princess of the United Kingdom", even though her title is Duchess.
Meghan and Harry have publicly asked the public and the media to respect their privacy because they wanted to keep their birth plans secret, as stated in a statement.
And they seem to give their child a life "as normal as possible," as mentioned by royal expert Daniela Elser, helped by the fact that Archie has not received a royal title so far.
Mrs. Elser told News.com.au: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have decided not to give their son the title of Count of Dumbarton, but he will be known to the more democratic master.
"Their reasoning is simple: they want the boy to live as normally as possible, not hindered by a future of plaque openings, horse shows and endless cocktail parties in the Commonwealth.
"And perhaps more importantly, they want to keep him as far away as possible from the glare of the pushy, insatiable press, because they can't force him to grow up on a remote Pacific atoll without Wi-Fi."
