She and Prince Harry welcomed their first child into the world last Monday, giving birth to a son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, on May 6.

Harry registered the arrival of his son - Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor - on Friday and it is likely Dexsha Mevada, deputy registrar of Westminster City Council who completed the form, travelled to his home as other registrars have done following royal births.

And while her official title remains Duchess of Sussex, new mum Meghan was listed as "Princess of the United Kingdom" on the certificate.

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

As for how the couple will be as parents, Daniel didn't hold back there, either. "Her mother is very into anything that is holistic and natural, and having been brought up with yoga and mindfulness, it's all very much part of Meghan's birth plan".

This would free up the royal residence for a new family - potentially the Sussexes.

Until now, the duke and duchess - who celebrate their first wedding anniversary on Sunday - had been trying to keep the birth location private and details of their medical staff a secret.

Officially Meghan is a Princess, because when she married Harry she adopted the female equivalent of his name as HRH Princess Henry of Wales. 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 baby is a little bit overdue, so we've had a little bit of time to think about it, but that's the next bit. After the photos were published by a newspaper, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a decision to leave their property as they felt their "security and privacy" were at risk.

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