A name-changed occurred on Archie’s birth certificate, specifically under the name of the mother, Meghan Markle.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry face a new set of controversies after what happened on Archie’s birth certificate. Over the weekend, writer Lady Colin Campbell noticed that a change previously took place, particularly under the mother’s name.
The amendment shows that the name of Archie Harrison’s mother no longer has the first names of the former actress. It no longer appears to have the “Rachel Meghan,” and left instead with the titles. Reports said that the legal document only indicates “Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex.”
Following the shocking modification, an expert stated that the Duchess has “lobbed a grenade” at the British Royal Family, according to the Daily Express. As added, it has since sparked a “row” between the Sussexes and the British Royals.
The change has repercussions
Speaking to the New Zealand Herald, Daniela Elser likened the name-change to a “grenade.” She said that the move appears to be one that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry decided to throw to the British Royal Family.
The royal expert continued that this puts their “trans-Atlantic relations” to the rest of the British Royals. She also asserted that this might even have “wider repercussions” because the Sussexes and the royals are not exactly in a good place right now.

Did Meghan Markle modify the birth certificate?
Reports said that the change actually happened back in 2019. It was a month after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry registered the birth of their son.
Several individuals reportedly deem it as a “nod to Princess Diana.” As claimed, the Princess of Wales has preferences when it comes to her name.
But, as the speculations continue to develop, a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex dismissed all the allegations. Speaking to The Telegraph, the representative emphasized that the modification had nothing to do with the Sussex couple. They did not request this, the rep added.
The same source continued that the Palace “dictated” the change of name on the public documents. Senior Palace officials also allegedly confirmed this with them.
The couple’s spokesperson also slammed the tabloids, as well as the “so-called experts” on the issue. As pointed out, these sources and papers “chose to deceptively whip this into a calculated ‘snub’” by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. It is “laughable” if not offensive, the rep added.
