The Duke Prince Harry and Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle welcomed their first child, a baby boy on Monday. The royal family confirmed the news. The new baby boy is the eight great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth. The baby boy is standing seventh in line to the British Throne.
The reports say that the boy was born at 5.26 a.m. and weighs 7 pounds, 3 ounces. “It’s been the most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined,” said Harry. “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,” he added.
The royal family also took to Instagram to announce the arrival of the baby.
Harry joked with reporters that he hadn’t “been at many births” and that his son’s was “definitely my first birth.” On a more serious note, Harry said he was “so incredibly proud” of Meghan.
“As every father and parent would ever say, you know, your baby is absolutely amazing, but this little thing is absolutely to die for, so I’m just over the moon,” Harry said.
Wishes have poured in for the birth of the baby.
Priyanka Chopra also wished her friend the former actress Meghan Markle for the birth of her first child.
