The birthplace of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor has been revealed, and it didn’t take place where we thought it would!
While it was highly speculated that Meghan Markle would be giving birth to her first child at home, she ended up delivering him in a hospital.
His birth certificate was made public on Friday after a representative from the Westminster Registrar’s Office visited the family of three at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, which revealed that the bundle of joy was welcomed at the private Portland Hospital in Westminster.
Sarah, Duchess of York welcomed Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, Prince Harry‘s cousins at the same hospital, as did Victoria Beckham with her sons Brookyln and Romeo Beckham.
Like her sister-in-law Kate Middleton, the former Suits star is listed as a Princess of the United Kingdom on the birth certificate, though her full legal name, Rachel Meghan Markle, is also listed:
