The royal baby is here! Prince Harry has confirmed that his wife Meghan Markle has given birth to a baby boy on May 6th 2019 at 05:26 BST.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal baby has finally been born in the early hours of the morning. Harry, The Duke Of Sussex, was present throughout the birth and has since announced that both the baby boy and Meghan are doing 'incredibly well'.
Harry confirmed, "As every father and parent will ever say, you know, your baby is absolutely amazing, but this little thing is absolutely to-die-for, so I'm just over the moon."
Harry also added, "It's been the most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined - how any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension".
His admiration for Meghan continued as he told a line up of reporters, "I haven't been at many births. This is definitely my first birth. It was amazing, absolutely incredible, and, as I said, I'm so incredibly proud of my wife".
