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.
