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. 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.
The little one weighed in at 7lb, 3oz, and a beaming Prince Harry told reporters Monday of the delivery, “It was amazing, absolutely incredible. I’m so incredibly proud of my wife . . . I’m just over the moon!”
The baby is officially seventh in line to the throne of England, behind father Harry, Uncle William, cousins George, Charlotte, and Louis, and grandfather Charles.
He’s also not technically a prince; instead, the baby will assume one of the lesser titles Prince Harry was given by the Queen when he and Meghan married last year: the Earl of Dumbarton.
And now, of course, we await the next phase of Royal Baby Watch: what will his name be? We can’t wait to find out
Congratulations to the brand new family of three!
