After months of waiting (and speculating), Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (who nailed her maternity style) have welcomed their first child, a boy, and he’s the first interracial baby in the British monarchy’s recent history. The latest addition to the royal family is now the seventh in line to the British throne, behind the Duke of Sussex. According to a statement by Buckingham Palace, the Duchess of Sussex gave birth at 5.26am, and although the location wasn’t officially revealed, it was rumoured to be at the Frogmore Cottage where the couple resides. As revealed via the couple’s official Instagram page, the newborn weighed seven pounds and three ounces.
Having been more than a week overdue, the prince was no doubt overjoyed and beamed with pride as he gave his first interview outside of his residence. “I’m happy to announce that Meghan and myself had a baby boy early this morning—a very healthy boy. Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. It’s been the most amazing experience I could possibly ever imagine. How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension but we’re both absolutely thrilled and so grateful to all the love and support from everybody out there. It’s been amazing, so I just wanna share this with everybody.” When asked about the baby’s name, the Duke of Sussex revealed that they’re “still thinking about names. The baby is a little bit overdue so we had a little bit of time to think about it. That’s the next bit.” He also added that the public will be seeing the family in two days’ time.
