Duchess of Sussex drops title on Lili's birth certificate


The Duchess of Sussex shunned her title on her daughter's birth certificate and was listed as Rachel Meghan Markle, but her husband, Prince Harry, was listed as HRH The Duke of Sussex.


A copy of the registration document for Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor - who was born earlier this month - obtained by TMZ showed the tot's father, Prince Harry, was listed with HRH under his last name and The Duke of Sussex as his first, while the former “Suits” star was listed as Rachel Meghan Markle.

The reveal of the document comes following a dispute over the couple's son Archie's birth certificate.

It had been claimed Meghan had removed her first names from the 2019 document and was listed as Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex, but the couple hit back in a strongly-worded statement in which they insisted the removal of the 39-year-old former actress' Christian names had been "dictated by the Palace, as confirmed by documents from senior Palace officials."

While Harry has used HRH on Lilibet's birth certificate, the couple were told not to use the title after they stepped away from official duties last year and were "no longer working royals."
