Meghan Markle has given birth to her and husband Prince Harry’s first child – a healthy baby boy. The news was announced by the Duke of Sussex, who appeared outside Frogmore Cottage to speak to TV cameras. The boy was delivered at 5.26am, weighing 7lbs 3oz – and both mother and son are doing “incredibly well”.
When will we see Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s baby for the first time?
Speaking after the birth, Prince Harry revealed the couple planned to make another announcement in two days’ time so “everyone can see the baby”.
That means royal fans can expect a photo of the little one on Wednesday, May 8.
The Duke of Sussex said the baby was “a little overdue” and thanked the public for their support.
The prince also added the new family-of-three were “absolutely thrilled” and said Meghan and the baby were doing “incredibly well”.
The boy is seventh in line to the throne and the Queen’s eighth great-grandchild.
Prince Harry was by his wife’s side when she gave birth to the newest member of the Royal Family.
Asked what it was like to be present for the birth, Prince Harry said: “I haven’t been at many births.
“This is definitely my first birth. It was amazing, absolutely incredible, and, as I said, I’m so incredibly proud of my wife.
“As every father and parent will 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.
“It’s been the most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined.
“How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension.”
Buckingham Palace issued a statement on Monday, saying family members were “delighted with the news”.
The statement read: “The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Lady Jane Fellowes, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Earl Spencer have been informed and are delighted with the news.
“The duchess’s mother, Doria Ragland, who is overjoyed by the arrival of her first grandchild, is with their Royal Highnesses at Frogmore Cottage.”
