Prince Harry Gives The World An Update On His New Son
One proud dad
Very exciting news this morning, as we wake to hear that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have welcomed their new son.
This morning, Prince Harry addressed the birth of Baby Sussex, saying that he is incredibly proud of his wife.
The little boy arrived a week overdue, weighing in at just over three kilos, or seven pounds three ounces in the old scale.
Meghan is doing well and is recovering at Frogmore Cottage.
The news broke late last night by Sky News reporter Rhiannon Mills, revealing that Meghan had gone into labour early on Monday and that Harry was with her.
The child, the couple's first, is the seventh-in-line to the British throne.
Queen Elizabeth's grandson Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, a US-born former actress, married in a lavish ceremony at the monarch's Windsor Castle home in May last year.
Their son is the eighth great grandchild of the 93-year-old queen, the world's longest-reigning monarch, and could be entitled to hold joint British and American citizenship according to nationality rules.
However, the child will not automatically be a prince or a princess as any such title will have to be bestowed by the queen by issuing what is known as a letter patent.
The couple are yet to announce the name of their new son.
