The claim was made by , who allege that it was in fact aides at Team Sussex that made the correction to the document. They replaced “Rachel Meghan” with “Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex” on the birth certificate. The change was carried out a month after Archie’s birth on June 5th 2019.
Meghan and Harry’s Californian PR team issued a statement on Sunday, saying the changes were “dictated by the Palace”.
However, royal sources told that it was officials from Kensington Palace that had implemented the changes.
At the time, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s royal team were based in offices at Kensington Palace.
A royal insider said: “The birth certificate was changed by the former office of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex they had when they were working members of the royal family.
“It was changed to ensure consistency of the name and title of the Duchess with other private documents.”
In reply, a spokesman for Meghan and Harry denied that the change had been requested by either of them.
