MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry “deliberately misled” the British public about Archie’s birth in a move that infuriated Prince William, a royal expert has claimed.
In his book Battle of Brothers, royal expert Robert Lacey explains how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son Archie was born at 5:26am on 5 May 2019 – but Buckingham Palace didn’t announce anything about the birth until 2pm that day.
The author – who is an advisor for Netflix’s The Crown – claims the statement implied that Meghan had only just gone in to labour when the new mum was actually already at home with baby Archie.
He wrote: “Harry and Meghan were resolute that their newborn baby’s first sight of the world should not be the same insane and lethal camera-flashing that had attended — had actually brought about — the death of Diana.”
The news comes as Meghan became the first modern royal to vote in a US presidential election after casting an early mail ballot, a source has claimed.
