On Saturday 30th January the Daily Mail revealed that the birth certificate of little Archie, the son of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, had been altered shortly after his birth by the Duchess of Sussex. Not true, she protested through her spokesperson.
Meghan Markle counterattacks. Even in exile thousands of miles from London, the Duchess of Sussex will not let bad tongues continue to smear her. As the Daily Mail reported on Saturday, January 30, that Prince Harry’s wife deliberately changed her name on her son Archie’s birth certificate shortly after he was born, she is stepping up to the plate to defend her truth.
“The name change on public records in 2019 was dictated by the Palace, as confirmed by documents from senior Palace officials. It was not a request from Meghan or Prince Harry,” said a spokesman for Meghan Markle. These new insinuations made by the British press shocked the Duchess of Sussex, who had already made the choice to go live with her husband and their son in the United States, far from the media hounding she claimed to be a victim.
A cleverly calculated family rebuff?
“To see this British tabloid and its carnival of pseudo-experts choosing to turn this into a calculated family “rebuff” and suggesting that she strangely wants her name not to appear on her child’s birth certificate, or any other legal document, would be laughable if it wasn’t offensive,” the spokesman added. Bitterly, Meghan Markle urged the press to focus on other, much more important news. “There’s a lot going on in the world, let’s focus on that rather than creating a ‘clickbait’,” she concluded.
Sign of recognition or first part of a plan?
On Saturday 30 January, the British press reported that the former Suits actress had erased her name ‘Rachel Meghan’ from the birth certificate of her son Archie, born in May 2019, in favour of ‘Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex’. A revelation that has been the subject of much speculation.
While some interpreted it as “a token of gratitude to Princess Diana” who has always signed ‘Her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales’, others, such as Dickie Arbiter, the Queen’s former Press Secretary, saw it as “part of the first part of a plan”, before their resounding departure from the Royal Family in January 2020. Rumours that Meghan Markle was quick to put a stop to. Constantly in turmoil, her possible absence next June during her husband Prince Harry’s stay in London is already provoking enough comments.
