I don't think its an issue that some of their private lives and personal pictures are released by them as it is their decision to do so. I think that by stating that they want privacy relates to the invasion of privacy such as what has happened with the house is the Cotswolds. Harry and Meghan want to be in control of just what is presented to the public domain in regards to their private and personal lives and will use their Instagram account to do so. However, invasions of their privacy by the media or the paparazzi will not be tolerated.

Many royals, at one point or another, have complained about privacy. Yet, they've all, at different times, shared personal photographs.
Agree. There's also a way one can share personal photos publicly without being intrusive or releasing private details that they'd rather be protected; e.g. the photo the Sussexes released of Archie's feet for Mother's Day in the US. Private to me is information about every little detail about the royals lifestyles - paparazzi photos of royals shopping would also full under this category for me. Personal, however, is shared by the royals themselves IMO.

As I think about it, I realize that as much as I like and respect everyone here, I don't wish to post the name of my doctor, my therapist and heavens no not my gynecologist. It's too personal and it would open the door to some hacker being able to get my medical records. Even though these are very famous people, I don't think that they owe us that information. I don't recall knowing the name of William or Harry's doctor. Why does being female make a difference here?

I agree with you on this. The only name I cared about learning in all of this was "Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor."

Bassoonist, you might find it useful to read back through page 59. It's not about being female.
Some people, who are not trolls nor conspiracy theorists nor a danger to the BRF and who, most likely, are huge supporters of the Monarchy are questioning the change in not stating the doctor's name and wondering why this would be.
Doctors are not permitted to share patient information, no one is suggesting hacking into private medical details. However, if that were a serious threat then it could be one reason as to why the doctor's name is withheld.
It is quite alarming to read here the reports of harrassment some connections to Harry and Meghan have received.
When everyone's birth announcements were more usually placed in the local newspapers it was very common practise to print, along with names, a thank you to the Dr (by name) and the hospital. Reporting the name of the royal birth doctor is perhaps a carry over of that polite practise. There was never any suggestion that by publishing a doctor's name one's medical records could be accessed.

We have to factor in the speed with which technology is overtaking us. What was possible to hack when George was born may very well be possible now. But while it's just in point of interest for some to want to know who the attending doctor was, to me it is of no interest and more, none of my business, but that is just me.

But, consider"

A woman erroneously identified as Meghan's Doula was harassed by the paparazzi when they knew that even if she had been, she would have been prevented by law from giving them any information. But, her life was rudely interrupted and her privacy invaded nonetheless.

Paparazzi went to all the problem of tracking down the doctor that delivered Meghan herself! Just think about it. Was that information in the public domain? I very much doubt it. Was the law broken? To track the birth records of a woman born over thirty-seven years ago? I would imagine very, very, much so. And once having found the information, said doctor was confronted and his privacy was invaded as indeed was Meghan's.

There was no reason for either situation and I am really happy to see that Harry and Meghan are taking a leaf out of William and Catherine's book and releasing cute photos as the need arises. Let's hope they continue to do so.

Not necessarily-in a number of places in the US the attending physician's name is a field on the birth certificate--they may just have viewed Meghan's birth certificate and found the doctor. However, invading his privacy was over the line.

In none of our family’s birth certificates is the physician listed. And this is in several different states

It woudnít necessarily be on the certified copy-just the original record. And often when you get a certified copy it is only the short form version anyway.

I donít believe thatís the case in U.K.. I donít think anyone expected that information from Archieís birth certificate. Just the location. At least not from people familiar with U.K. birth certificates.

And yes, I know, the whole idea about strictly controlling the informations and photos and I'm more than fine with it, but to me it doesn't really matter who puts the stuff out there - is it the press or their media office - it's not keeping things private. Because to me, private means not publishing stuff like this (and not only not letting the press publish them first) and not only controlling what is out there for people to see.

So currently I don't really understand what they're trying to do here, because they're communicating two conflicting things.
When did they ask for privacy, if you don't mind my asking? The official statement relating to the details of Archie's birth is the only one that mentions privacy as far as I know.

Quote:
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very grateful for the goodwill they have received from people throughout the United Kingdom and around the world as they prepare to welcome their baby. Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private. The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.
In what way is posting personal family pictures inconsistent with their official statement?

I knew the name would be unique but have some tradition to it... that is what this couple does best. I never would have guessed Archie but within a day or so I got used to it and now it seems natural to me. I do like it better than Archibald so that's a plus

If Meghan intends to keep seeing the same physician for her ongoing OB/gyn care, any security concerns they had for the doctor leading up to the birth may continue to be concerns going forward.

I'm thinking that a good way to look at things going into the future is to realize that there will be plenty of their public lives and engagements and incentives to keep us happy and informed on what this couple is doing and that is the given. Anything else relating to their children and personal lives that they wish to share with us will be a gift.

In a perfect world, the press and the media would focus on their public lives and the Instagram account may afford us some information and pictures to really make us smile as it comes directly from them.

The discussion had nothing to do with Archie's birth certificate--it was about Meghan's and the doctor involved in her birth in California.

Ah, I hadn't realized we've moved on from Archie's birth certificate to Meghan's. Although I'm not convinced that's how they found the doctor who delivered Meghan. Even if the doctor's name is on the birth certificate, I don't know if anyone can request birth certificate in US like they do in UK.

Posts about the Sussexes not related to Archie's birth have been moved to the http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...a-46407-2.html thread. Please use this thread for any information on Archie unrelated to his birth.

Access to records like this varies from state to state. Some states keep them private (available only to the individual, the courts, etc.) for 50+ years, others make them public right away, albeit with a request process that may be lengthy, carry a fee, etc.

It looks like anyone can get an "informational copy" of birth records in California. The informational copy seems to have all the same information as a certified copy, only with a stamp across the top to say it can't be used for identification purposes.
