Prince Harry, in a deviation from the Megxit agreement, has identified himself as “His Royal Highness” on his daughter’s birth certificate, a move contradicting the pledge he made with Meghan.
Reports reveal that Prince Harry used the title “His Royal Highness” and designated himself as the “Duke of Sussex” on the birth certificate, going against the commitment to refrain from using these titles post their departure from the royal family.
The Sun, claiming that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have abandoned their “HRH” titles, raised doubts, though these titles were never officially revoked. This decision was made early last year when the couple announced their decision to step down from their primary royal roles.
Meghan Markle, also known as Rachel Meghan Markle, stirred controversy when she signed her son Archie’s birth certificate using her full legal name, deviating from the customary protocol. While some viewed it as a deliberate act of rebellion against the monarchy, others argued that she was merely exercising her right to use her complete name.
Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, born on May 6, 2019, at Portland Hospital in London, is the son of Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and is seventh in line for the British throne. His birth certificate designated Meghan’s title as “Princess of the United Kingdom.”
The most recent document, available in Santa Barbara, pertains to the birth of Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor on June 6 at 11:40 a.m. at the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, near the family’s estate.
The Royal Family has captivated public interest, particularly after the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Post-marriage, the couple distanced themselves from conventional royal duties, gaining recognition in the UK and globally.
In 2020, they announced their decision to step back from their roles as “senior” royals and focus on achieving financial independence. This move sparked extensive public discourse on the role of royal families in contemporary society.
Despite no longer holding formal positions in the Royal Family, Prince Harry and Meghan retain their titles and occasionally attend royal events. They have shifted their focus to causes such as mental health awareness, gender equality, and sustainability, utilizing their position to advocate for societal issues and support marginalized communities.
As the couple embraces a more independent path, their commitment to positive change resonates with people worldwide. The public’s response to their departure from the Royal Family reflects a growing desire for constructive change in a society still influenced by traditional values.
