Finally, the moment we’ve all been waiting for is here: Meghan Markle has given birth to her first royal baby, a boy, with Prince Harry! The littlest royal arrived on Monday, May 6, weighing seven pounds and three ounces.
Earlier on Monday, Buckingham Palace had announced that Meghan “went into labor in the early hours of this morning.” Prince Harry was by her side during the delivery, according to a statement. The Sussexes announced the birth on Instagram; a name has not yet been revealed.
Buckingham Palace announced that Meghan’s mom Doria Ragland is with the happy family at their home of Frogmore Cottage.
Prince Harry also announced the birth himself for the press – appearing in front of horse stables on the Windsor, U.K., property to share his baby joy:
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced that they (and in turn, we) were expecting a royal baby shortly after arriving in Australia for a 16-day royal tour.
The pregnancy announcement was made in October on their former Instagram page, @KensingtonRoyal, which they shared with Prince William and Kate Middleton back in the day (erm, earlier in April). They revealed the child was due in spring 2019 in that post. (Spot-on!)
This is joyous news for the couple (and us), as they (and we) will also be celebrating their royal wedding anniversary on May 19. The day was memorable – Windsor Castle, Meghan’s Givenchy gown, a gospel choir, Oprah Winfrey in attendance – and we’re glad to have another cause for celebration.
With the baby’s arrival, the royal family’s line of succession extends a jot further. Currently, Queen Elizabeth is the monarch (to state the obvious), followed by Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, the elusive Prince Louis, and new father Prince Harry.
The unnamed baby now takes the position of seventh in line for the throne, knocking Prince Andrew down a spot.
Congratulations to Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and the entire Royal Family.
