All speculations surrounding the birth of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s first child can now be put to rest as the couple have officially welcomed their son.
Although news about the birth started making media rounds early Monday, confirmation was made through the social media handles of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as they revealed the gender of the new Prince whose name, according to Prince Harry would be revealed in a day or two.
According to several reports, Meghan Markle delivered safely at 5.26 a.m. The Buckingham Palace had announced that the healthy baby boy weighed 7lbs. 3oz and both mother and son are doing well.
Meghan delivered the 7th heir to the throne with her husband and mother by her side. The Duchess is bi-racial with curly hair; a feature the new prince is possibly going to inherit from his mother.
Speaking to the media after the delivery, Prince Harry confirmed that his wife and son were in great condition.
“How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension, but we’re both absolutely thrilled and so grateful for all the love and support from everybody out there. I’m so incredibly proud of my wife. As every father and parent would say, your baby is absolutely amazing. But this little thing is absolutely to die for, so I’m just over the moon,” he said with emotions.
The newborn royal is now the eighth grandchild of the Queen, however, it is not certain if he will be given a royal name similar to the ones given to Prince William’s three children.
Prior to the arrival of the baby, it was rumoured that The Duke and Duchess of Sussex might be moving to Africa after several misunderstandings between the Duchess and her new family.
The couple got married in a royal wedding with historic black-themed performances on May 19, 2018.
