Amazing news as it’s been confirmed that The Duchess of Sussex has given birth to a baby boy with her husband Prince Harry by her side after going into labour this morning.
Buckingham Palace announced:
“The Duchess went into labour in the early hours of this morning. The Duke of Sussex was by Her Royal Highnesses’ side. An announcement will be made soon.”
The couple have been very quiet about the birth and what they’re planning to do, saying they will share news of their baby’s arrival “once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family”.
For several weeks now International press have been assembling in Windsor awaiting news that the baby is on its way, with American television networks updating their viewers daily.
The seventh-in-line to the throne is finally welcomed into the world.
The baby was a week overdue, with Meghan who is 37, said to be “comfortable and content” as she waited in her new home at Frogmore Cottage with her husband and mother Doria Ragland by her side.
The couple emphasise their wish for total privacy for their new arrival and hoped for a home birth.
With overdue babies requiring careful monitoring for the safety of mother and child that plan may have changed.
Meghan is reported to have chosen a female-led team to support her, with the Royal Household doctors on hand.
