Meghan Markle has been the center of all controversies since she got married to Prince Harry. But her most recent scandal has exposed an important part of her life that we thought we knew, but it seems as though we actually had no idea... And we've all been left dumbfounded by the recent discovery.
Keep scrolling to find out what her actual name and title are...
Meghan Markle has revolutionized the royal family.
via: Getty ImagesSince she started dating Prince Harry back in 2016, the world has become completely obsessed with the former actress.
But we might not know her as well as we originally thought...It was recently revealed via Archie's birth certificate that The Dutchess of Sussex actually has a whole different title and a whole other name we didn't know about... Read on to see baby Archie's birth certificate that reveals all the information.
A big part of Meghan's controversies have been associated with the royal family.
via: Getty ImagesThe couple wed in May 2018 and Meghan became the Duchess of Sussex, making her the first mixed-race American woman to join the royal family.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have worked tirelessly together to fulfill their royal duties...
via: Getty ImagesSince the wedding, Meghan has taken part in many royal tours and visits all around the world. And having her first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor hasn't stopped her from fulfilling her duties.
Naturally, the world fell in love with the new Duchess...
via: Getty ImagesHer beautiful looks and elegant demeanor captured hearts all around the world, and her work for feminism and women's charities has set an excellent example within the royal family.
Cracks began to show early, however...
via: Getty ImagesMeghan was quickly criticized upon her entrance into the royal family, and not all complaints were because she "wasn't royal enough." A family feud with her father, Thomas Markle, was quickly made very public and, when he didn't attend the wedding, the heat was turned onto Meghan.
Her dad reportedly hasn't met his grandson yet.
via: Good Morning BritainThomas Markle made claims back in 2018 on British television breakfast show, Good Morning Britain, that Meghan had simply "ghosted" him, saying: "I’ve still never met my son-in-law. Why couldn’t Prince Harry have got on a plane and flown to see me to ask for her hand?"
Sources claimed that Meghan has cut all ties with her dad...
via: Getty ImagesSources said that "it's a terribly sad situation but Meghan has made the very difficult decision that she doesn't have an active relationship with her father anymore." "It’s obviously heartbreaking for her but she has to protect herself, her husband and her son."
Meghan was also branded a "diva" since she became royalty.
via: Getty ImagesReports came through that Meghan was extremely high-maintenance in the palace and servers who worked for her had reportedly even quit their jobs due to her behavior. Of course, none of these reports are reliable, but they certainly made their way through newspapers around the world.
And, of course, there were reports of her supposed feuds with Kate Middleton...
via: ShutterstockIt was reported that Meghan left Kate "in tears" after a strict bridesmaid fitting for Princess Charlotte. But, despite many claims that the sisters-in-law are actually very close, tabloids in both the U.K and the U.S. like to state otherwise, saying that Kate is "fed up" of Meghan's high-maintenance attitude.
Even the Duke and Duchess' habit of flying in private jets caused a stir in the media...
via: Getty ImagesAmid current conversations about climate change, many people have noticed that the couple often use a private jet to fly from one part of England to the other, an extremely wasteful method of travel that will ultimately damage the environment. But, of course, Meghan was the one who faced most of the heat for this.
Meghan's parenting style was also criticized.
via: Getty ImagesShe was repeatedly mom-shamed after paparazzi snaps emerged of her "awkwardly" holding baby Archie - a struggle that any new mom can totally relate to. Shaming a new parent is completely uncalled for, and this made it very obvious that the press were desperate to stir hate.
Meghan's eventful life was something that the papers simply loved to pick apart...
via: Getty ImagesAnd it seemed that British tabloid paper, The Mail on Sunday, took things a step too far when they published an intimate and private letter that Meghan wrote to her father earlier this year.
The Duke and Duchess had no choice but to take legal action against publishers of the Daily Mail...
via: Getty ImagesThis decision came as Prince Harry made a highly personal attack on the British tabloid press over the treatment of his wife, saying that he could "no longer be a silent witness to her private suffering."
And, following on from the tabloid scandal, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a shocking announcement.
via: Getty ImagesThe royal couple announced via their joint Instagram page that they were stepping down as senior members of the royal family. "After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen," the post read.
The couple will now split their time between North America and the UK.
This is a huge deal.
via: Getty ImagesAnd, obviously, their decision has shaken things up. "We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties."
Twitter exploded with reactions to the news, and they were certainly mixed.

Apparently, the pair didn't tell anyone about the news, instead opting to break it through Instagram.BBC, no other senior members of the Royal Family were consulted - including the Queen - and Buckingham Palace is "disappointed." The report also claims that senior royals are said to be "hurt" by the controversial announcement.

via: Getty ImagesIt's safe to say the pair haven't been thrilled with their royal roles, especially given the negative press they constantly receive. But it seems there were 2 key moments that triggered their decision - and they are thanks to the Queen.
