Prince Harry and Meghan's son, Archie, meets his grandfather Prince Charles

Note: Despite the occupations listed, neither Meghan Markle or Kate Middleton are princesses, technically speaking. Meghan had hoped for a home birth.

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

She was rumoured to have opted for a home birth with her first child, but baby Archie's birth certificate has now confirmed his mum Meghan actually gave birth in a private hospital.

Harry's brother Prince William and his wife Kate had all three of their children delivered at St Mary's Hospital in London, where the princes themselves were born.

The Duke and Duchess of York chose to have Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie at the Portland while Victoria Beckham had her sons Brooklyn and Romeo there.

Ahead of Archie's arrival, Meghan and Harry announced they were keeping the details around the birth of their son on May 6 private. Archie is seventh in the line of succession, and he is The Queen's eighth great-grandchild.

Meghan's friend and makeup artist Daniel Martin told Gayle King that there's a very good chance the royal baby will be raised "clean and green".

Daniel, who famously created Meghan's wedding look previous year, also recalled the moment the bride walked down the aisle solo until she was met by Prince Charles.

Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, became engaged following a whirlwind 16-month romance after going on a blind date in London.

She has expressed her feelings that Meghan and Harry should be forgiving of anything that happened in the past and let the Markle family be a part of Archie's life. Doria has been spending time in England with her daughter and son-in-law and was by Meghan's side when Archie made his debut into the world.

The Duchess of Cambridge attended the celebrations a year ago, having only just given birth to Prince Louis a few weeks before.

We all know that Prince Harry is a Prince.
