Prince Harry has used his HRH title on the birth certificate of his daughter Lilibet, it has been revealed.

The 36 year old welcomed his second child with 39 year old wife Meghan Markle earlier this month, with the baby's birth certificate now being obtained by TMZ.

Lili's birth certificate confirms her full name is Lilbet Diana Mountbatten Windsor, with her father's first name listed as The Duke of Sussex, and his surname as His Royal Highness.

However, her mother has opted to not use her title, with her name being listed as Rachel Meghan Markle, unlike on her firstborn Archie's birth registration.

Archie's birth certificate, which was released in May 2019, lists Harry's name as His Royal Highness Henry Charles Albert David Duke of Sussex.

Meanwhile, Meghan's name is written Rachel Meghan Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex, with her occupation incorrectly listed as Princess of the United Kingdom.

Harry and Meghan permanently stepped down as senior members of the Royal family earlier this year, meaning he is no longer able to use his HRH title.


A historical deal struck at Sandringham means the couple, who married in May 2018, are able to keep their HRH titles, but not use them.

The couple were able to keep the titles as they were a gift from the Queen on their wedding day.

Earlier this month, Harry's HRH title was removed from notices at the new royal fashion exhibition, which features his mum Princess Diana's wedding dress.

The exhibition featured a sign which says Diana's iconic gown was "lent by HRH the Duke of Cambridge and HRH the Duke of Sussex" when it launched.

The Royal Collection Trust, who oversaw the loan of the dresses for the Kensington Palace exhibition, said the labels were "incorrect and will be updated", citing an "administrative error" for the inclusion of the title.

Harry will arrive in the UK on Friday after being caught up in a security scare at LAX when a car crashed through the airport an hour before his flight departed.

The Duke of Sussex is visiting the UK for the unveiling of a statue of his mother, Princess Diana.

Almost 20 police cars were seen off a runway at LAX surrounding a car, with the driver apprehended by the force.

LAX Police told MailOnline there were no injuries and no "information indicating the incident was connected to a particular flight," but they are continuing to investigate.

It was reported earlier this week that Harry will be isolating at his former home Frogmore Cottage with his cousin Princess Eugenie once he arrives in the UK.
