The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, welcomed their first child.
The baby boy weighed 7 pounds, 3 ounces, the royal couple wrote on Instagram. The newborn is seventh in line to the British throne. It is not clear whether the child will receive a royal title. “Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. It’s been the most amazing experience I can ever possibly imagine. How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension, and we’re both absolutely thrilled,” Prince Harry said to media. The Duke of Sussex, who was present for the birth, added: "I'm so incredibly proud of my wife.” In April, the family announced they were canceling the traditional photo opportunity outside the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital in the heart of London. In keeping with tradition, the name of the newest member of the Royal Family will be announced in the coming days after the Queen has been told.
