Meghan, Duchess of Sussex gave birth to her son Archie at a private hospital in Westminster and not Frogmore Cottage as hoped for.

Buckingham Palace have now released  Archie Harrison Mountbattan Windsor’s birth certificate showing his place of birth. He was born at 5.26am local time (2.26pm AEST) on May 6 weighing in at 7lbs 3oz (3.26kg).

The birth certificate lists Meghan’s job as “Princess of the United Kingdom”. 


Portland, however, isn’t just a normal hospital as parents are said to have  “celebration meal” of champagne, lobster and foie gras after the delivery.

The cost of having a baby comes with a price tag of 15,000 to 20,000 pounds ($A28,000-$A37,000).

Other people to have given birth there include Victoria Beckham and Liz Hurley gave birth there and Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York had both Princess Beatrice and Eugenie.
