Meghan Markle's baby Archie's birth certificate released

Meghan Markle gave birth to baby Archie at the private Portland Hospital in Westminster, dismissing speculation she had a home birth at her house Frogmore Cottage, in Windsor.

Archie Harrison was born on May 6 at 5.26am, weighing 7lb 3oz.

The private hospital was used by Sarah Ferguson when she gave birth to Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.

According to reports, the hospital’s “basic” delivery costs begin at £15,000.

Until now, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had been trying to keep information about the birth location private. However royal protocol dictates that details of a royal birth are revealed to the public as was the case with Kate Middleton, with all three of her children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

The birth certificate also confirmed Meghan's occupation as a "Princess of the United Kingdom", while Harry was listed as a "Prince of the United Kingdom".

My view: So what was all the secrecy and drama about then?. Harry and Meghan wanted to keep the birth certificate private but the Queen made them show it to the public. So MM's occupation is Princess of the UK, just like Kate Middleton who'll be the real deal Princess of Wales. I can see where the competition is coming from and Meghan's media PR with Gayle King and CBS.
