The Prince and Duchess of Sussex have just welcomed their child together and it’s a baby boy, Buckingham Palace has announced. The royal baby arrived 13 days before the couple’s first wedding anniversary.
Meghan went into labor in the early hours of this morning – having been more than a week overdue – and her husband Prince Harry is currently by her side, Buckingham Palace announced.
The baby’s sex will be a surprise for the duke and duchess, who have chosen not to find out what they are having until after the birth.
Following what has been dubbed the ‘Sussex Standby’, the baby prince or princess will be seventh in line to the throne, after their father Harry and his niece and nephews Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
Meghan’s doting mother Doria Ragland had flown to Britain to be at her daughter’s side for the birth of the baby at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, having canceled her yoga classes in Los Angeles and hired a dog sitter.
