Meghan Markle gave birth to baby Archie at the private Portland Hospital in Westminster, the newborns official birth certificate has confirmed.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have now formally registered the birth of their son, full name Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, nearly two weeks after he was born on May 6 weighing 7lbs 3oz.

The Duchess, 37, gave her name as Rachel Meghan Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex and listed her profession as Princess of the United Kingdom.

Harrys full name appears His Royal Highness Henry Charles Albert David Duke of Sussex, while Archie hasnt been given a royal title as the couple said they wanted their son to lead a normal life.

The birth certificate clears up reports suggesting Meghan had given birth at their Frogmore Cottage home.

The Portland hospital, where births are said to cost a minimum of £15,000, is also where Victoria Beckham and Jools Oliver welcomed their children.

While Meghans sister-in-law Kate Middleton followed royal tradition and gave birth in the Lindo Wing at St Marys Hospital in London, Meghan isnt the first royal to opt to give birth at the Portland Hospital.

Sarah Ferguson welcomed Princess Beatrice there in 1988 and also Princess Eugenie two years later.

Two days after Meghan welcomed Archie, the royal couple introduced the little one to the world for the first time.

Meghan told reporters that her firstborn has “the sweetest temperament, hes really calm.”

She later beamed, “I have the two best guys in the world, so Im really happy.”
