The resurfacing of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s son Archie‘s birth certificate has only reignited public interest and scrutiny.

Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, born on May 6, 2019, has largely been kept out of the spotlight by his parents, despite their continued presence in the public eye.

However, the document in question has raised eyebrows due to an omitted detail concerning titles, drawing comparisons to the birth certificates of Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s children

Upon Archie’s birth, royal enthusiasts were quick to examine his birth certificate, which is a public record. They noticed that Harry’s name was listed as “His Royal Highness Henry Charles Albert David Duke of Sussex,” notably omitting the title “Prince.”

On the same document, Meghan was listed as “Rachel Meghan Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex,” with her occupation registered as “Princess of the United Kingdom.”

The absence of “Prince” from Harry’s title on Archie’s birth certificate sparked a flurry of comments and speculations online, especially after the Daily Express published the image.

One Facebook user exclaimed: “Because it is a fake birth certificate and so not valid another manipulation of Meghan and Harry.”

Another user questioned: “Harry without the word Prince? Is who is the biological father of Harry controversies could be exposed now?”

Some simply dismissed Harry’s royal status, with one writing: “He’s not a Prince, period,” while another chimed in with: “OMG… seriously?”

Further speculations about the children emerged, with a user asserting: “I believe that both children were born from a surrogate.”

Another person echoed this, adding: “Because they are not their children!”

However, not all reactions were negative. Some defended the family, with one user noting: “This family is beautiful, please let them breathe.”

There were also comments on the similarities between Archie and his parents, such as: “His eyes are the same shape as Meghan’s,” and “Aww how cute he looks like his dad adorable.”

Despite the varied reactions, the missing “Prince” title on Harry’s name in Archie’s birth certificate remained a topic of interest. In contrast, Prince William was registered as “Prince” on his children’s birth certificates.

Specifically, on Prince GeorgePrincess Charlotte, and Prince Louis‘ birth certificates, William was listed as “His Royal Highness Prince William Arthur Philip Louis Duke of Cambridge.”

Additionally, King Charles was registered as “His Royal Highness Prince Charles Philip Arthur George Prince of Wales” on both William and Harry’s birth certificates.

Interestingly, Meghan no longer used her HRH title on her second child’s birth certificate.

Harry and Meghan welcomed their second child, daughter Lilibet Diana, on June 4, 2021, in Santa Barbara, California. Despite having been told they could no longer use their HRH titles following their decision to step down as working royals at the start of 2020, Harry again used his HRH title on Lilibet’s birth certificate. His last name was listed as “HRH,” and his first name as “The Duke of Sussex.” Meanwhile, Meghan’s name was written as her birth name, “Rachel Markle.”

Aside from Harry’s name, other details surrounding Archie’s birth were confirmed on the certificate. One detail was that Meghan gave birth at Portland Hospital in London, which negated earlier reports suggesting she had chosen a home birth. Following Archie’s birth, the Sussex Royal Instagram page paid a heartfelt tribute to Meghan and Harry on their first Mother’s and Father’s Day celebrations.

Not much has since been shared by the couple about their children publicly. However, they sometimes talk about the two kids during public engagements and interviews.
