Meghan Markle: Buckingham Palace shoots down controversial Royal show claims

It's been nearly a year to the day since 29.2 million people tuned in to watch the royal wedding of Prince Harry and actress-turned-princess Meghan Markle, but royal family fever is still in full-swing on this side of the pond.

A spokesman for The Portland Hospital said: "Huge congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the birth of baby Archie".

Brace yourselves: Baby Archie was born in a hospital. Queen Elizabeth II's eighth great-grandchild did not arrive in a bathtub at Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor Castle grounds, as tut-tutting royal correspondents had previously speculated.

The birth certificate also listed Meghan's job as "Princess of the United Kingdom".


The baby is believed to be the first mixed-race child born to a senior member of the royal family in centuries, and is a reflection of modern Britain with its culturally diverse population.

Victoria Beckham and Liz Hurley gave birth there and Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York had both Princess Beatrice and Eugenie at the private hospital.

Ahead of Archie's arrival, Meghan and Harry announced they were keeping the details around the birth of their son on May 6 private.

In a preview clip, an emotional Mr Martin wipes away tears as he addresses newspaper reports about Meghan, saying: "I know her so well, she doesn't doesn't deserve all this negative press".


Luckily, Lifetime's new feature film Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal is on its way.

"Hopefully she will be able to make it to the 25 year reunion and she is welcome to bring Harry and Archie along with her". Their child is going to represent what the world is now. "I learned [that] they're two people in love, we all knew that", Gayle told ET after filming.

The duke was at his wife's side during the birth and he later confessed he had only had a few hours' sleep, suggesting Meghan had spent much of the night in labour.
