Prince Harry “Thrilled” as He & Meghan Markle Welcome 1st Child, a Boy
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their first child–a boy!–on Monday. “I’m very excited to announce that Meghan and myself had a baby boy early this morning,” Prince Harry told reporters in Windsor. “Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. It’s been the most amazing experience I could ever possibly imagine. How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension, but we’re both absolutely thrilled.” He added that they still haven’t named their son. “Still thinking about names,” Harry confirmed. “That’s the next bit.” The couple’s @SussexRoyal Instagram also posted, “We are pleased to 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.” Meanwhile, Harry said he and Markle expect to make their first public appearance with their newborn “in about two days’ time.” The baby will be seventh in line to the British throne behind Prince Charles, Prince William and his three children, and Prince Harry.
