CONGRATULATIONS!! Prince Harry And Meghan Announce The Birth Of Their First Child
Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have welcomed a baby boy, a post on their official Instagram account confirmed.
The statement said:
“We are pleased announce that Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their firstborn child in the early morning on May 6th, 2019. Their Royal Highnesses’ son weighs 7lbs. 3oz.
“The Duchess and baby are both healthy and well, and the couple thank members of the public for their shared excitement and support during this very special time in their lives.
“More details will be shared in the forthcoming days.”
Ahead of the birth, the couple expressed their wishes to celebrate their baby’s arrival privately until they were ready to go public.
Buckingham Palace said in a statement:
“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.”
The couple have not yet announced the name of their new child, although many have specualted that Meghan’s American background may mean they won’t necessarily go for a traditional British name as many royals have done traditionally.
Congrats, Harry and Meghan!
