Congratulations again to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are officially parents, as the royal couple excitedly announce the news that Baby Sussex has arrived.

‘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,’ read a statement from the couple via their Sussex Royal Instagram page.

‘The Duchess and baby are both healthy and well, and the couple thank members of the public for their shared excitement and support during this very special time in their lives. More details will be shared in the forthcoming days.’

Prince Harry’s reaction has spread across the internet with the 34-year-old telling the media that he was ‘incredibly proud of [his] wife’.

‘As every father and parent would say, your baby is absolutely amazing,’ he went on to explain before saying, ‘this little thing is absolutely to die for – I am over the moon.’

But as always, it was the Queen’s reaction that the public wanted to hear, with the monarch releasing a statement just after the birth.
