Britain's Duchess of Sussex gives birth to a boy

The couple have welcomed a son More

Prince Harry announced on Monday that his wife, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, had given birth to a baby boy.

Meghan's former Suits co-star and on-screen love interest Patrick J Adams said: "Just heard that the world just got heavier by 7 pounds and 3 ounces". But we guess we'll just have to wait and see!

"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".

Royals don't take usually use last names, but if Prince Harry follows his brother Prince William's lead, his sons could take the last name of his dukedom, and use the name Sussex.

Both mother and child are "healthy and well".

Former U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama, who has spent time with Harry over the years and met up with Meghan when she was in the United Kingdom last December, sent a congratulatory message via Twitter, which her husband re-tweeted.

Following the announcement of the birth, Harry spoke to reporters and gushed about his wife and newborn. "These next few weeks are always a bit daunting the first time round so we wish them all the best".

On the up side, they won't have to ask the Queen's permission to marry once they reach adulthood, as a reform of royal succession laws in 2013 mean only the six royals closest in lineage to the Queen have to seek her approval, as Prince Harry did.

"So, I'm just over the moon". "One of those babies is gonna pop out looking like me", she said.

Harry said the child was a little bit overdue and that had given them more time to contemplate names. "Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the arrival of their baby boy", Prime Minister Theresa May said on Twitter. As every parent would say, their baby is wonderful, but this little baby is absolutely to die for.

A spokesman for Buckingham Palace said only that such details should be revealed when the birth is officially registered, most likely later this week.

A royal commentator has suggested that palace aides may have been caught off guard by the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's baby.

It is also possible that Harry and Meghan could decide they don't want the special designation for the baby, in order to give their child a more normal upbringing.

Taking place in August on the Isle of Wight, the King's Cup Regatta will see the royal couple go head to head in the race, and each boat taking part will represent one of eight charities and the winning team will be awarded the historic trophy The King's Cup. It is believed she had a home birth at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, west of London.
