The Royal Baby Has Arrived

Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, gave birth on Monday to a “very healthy” boy, Prince Harry announced in a statement to television cameras in Windsor.

“I’m very excited to announce that Meghan and myself had a baby boy earlier this morning, a very healthy boy. Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. It’s been the most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined,” CNN quoted the beaming new father as saying.

“How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension, but we’re both absolutely thrilled and so grateful for all the love and support from everybody out there. It’s been amazing, so I just wanted to share this with everybody,” he added.

The newborn, who arrived at 5:26 am, weighs seven pounds and three ounces, according to a post on the official Sussex Royal Instagram account.

Die-hard fans of the royals can be seen toting baby-themed balloons as they made their way to Windsor Castle, near where Meghan and Harry now reside at Frogmore Cottage.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s newborn will be seventh in line to the British throne:

1. Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales – the Queen’s oldest son.

2. Prince William – Prince Charles’s oldest son.

3. Prince George – Prince William’s oldest child.

4. Princess Charlotte – Prince William’s second oldest child.

5. Prince Louis – Prince William’s third oldest child.

6. Prince Harry – Prince Charles’ second oldest son.

7. Baby Sussex – Prince Harry’s oldest child.

The royal couple are still considering names for their newborn. “The baby’s a little bit overdue so we’ve had a little bit of time to think about it, that’s the next bit. For us we’ll be seeing you guys in probably two days time as planned,” Prince Harry said.
