Meghan Markle Erases her First Names ‘Rachel Meghan’ from son Archie’s Birth Certificate in Favour of Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex ‘in Nod to Princess Diana’

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, leave Canada House in London, Britain January 7, 2020. Harry and Meghan said they plan to step back from their roles as senior members of Britain’s royal family and work to become financially independent. “We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honor our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth and our patronages,” he and Meghan said in a statement on Instagram on January 8.

Meghan Markle has erased her first names from Archie’s birth certificate in favour of Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex ‘in a nod to Princess Diana‘.

The first names ‘Rachel Meghan’ were removed from the mother section of the birth certificate to bring it in alliance with Diana’s preferred name, ‘Her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales’.

Archie’s birth was registered on May 17, 2019, after he was born on May 6. A month later, on June 6, the name was changed, reported The Sun.

The Queen’s ex-press secretary Dickie Arbiter said: ‘Maybe this was an early part of their plan.’

Lady Colin Campbell, who spotted the amendment, said: ‘It is extraordinary and raises all kinds of questions about what the Sussexes were thinking.’

Months after the name change the couple had quit the royal family.

MailOnline has contacted a representative of Harry and Meghan for comment.

Yesterday, it was revealed the Duchess of Sussex is ‘unlikely’ to accompany her husband when he returns to the UK in early summer.

The sixth in line to the throne will almost certainly travel to see his family for the first time since the couple acrimoniously quit as working royals alone, multiple sources have told the Daily Mail.
