No longer a duchess? Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s real status in the U.S. has been revealed online

On June 4, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex became parents for the second time: baby Lilibeth Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, named after her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, and grandmother, Princess Diana, was born at Santa Barbara Hospital. The Western media recently obtained the girl’s birth certificate, which contains some interesting details.

After “Megsite,” Elizabeth II stripped her grandson and his wife of their royal titles, but Lilibet’s first document lists Prince Harry as His Highness the Duke of Sussex. But the crumb’s mother has no connection to the British monarchy: she is listed as Rachel Meghan Markle.

When the former actress gave birth to son Archie in May 2019, she was still a senior member of the royal family, so expectedly she was listed along with the honorary title. The Dukes were listed as Prince and Princess of the United Kingdom in the “Profession” column. This time it was decided to omit this item, because the occupation of the couple is difficult to characterize in one word.

Insiders note that Archie and Lilibeth are citizens of both the United States and the United Kingdom. So far they have no titles, but that may change when Prince Charles takes the throne: traditionally, grandchildren of the King or Queen automatically become princes and princesses.
