This afternoon, His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex shared the news of the arrival of his and the Duchess’ first born child. Their son was born early morning on the 6th of May, 2019 and weighs 7lbs and 3oz. Their Royal Highnesses thank you for your support and kindness during this exceptionally joyful time in their lives as they welcome their baby boy.
Prince Harry announced that both ‘mother and baby are doing incredibly well’.
“I’m so incredibly proud of my wife.”
The once rebel Prince changed after he met Meghan Markle, but fatherhood had him overflowing with emotion.
“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 we just wanted to share this with everybody.”
The Daily Mail reports that the royal baby was born at The Portland hospital in London. However, it is not yet confirmed that this was the venue where Meghan gave birth.
There are reports the Sussexes’ firstborn was delivered at the sanctuary of Frogmore Cottage (their home on the Windsor Estate).
A spokeswoman for the hospital didn’t let the cat out the bag either.
“We are unable to confirm speculation about individuals who may or may not have been cared for at The Portland Hospital.”
Meghan did things differently as she did with the pregnancy. Meghan’s mother and now proud grandmother Doria Ragland accompanied the couple before the couple authorized Buckingham Palace to share the news.
After all, this is the first royal baby that is British-American and biracial.
