Prince Harry’s wife Meghan gave birth at a private hospital in London earlier this month, their son’s birth certificate revealed, according to British media on Friday.
The arrival of the couple’s first child Archie was shrouded in secrecy, with newspaper reports indicating the 37-year-old former US actress had wanted a home birth at their residence in Windsor, west of London.
However, the certificate confirmed the place of birth, in the early hours of May 6, as the Portland Hospital in central London, the Press Association news agency said.
The document listed the baby’s full name as Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. It also detailed Meghan’s occupation as “Princess of the United Kingdom”.
The Portland facility claims to be the only private hospital in Britain dedicated to the healthcare of women and children, offering “world-class” maternity care.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex broke with recent royal tradition in the choice.
