A massive congratulations to the pair!

Today, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their first child, a baby boy on Monday morning, May 6 at 5:26am.

The news broke via their Instagram page Sussex Royal where they announced the birth of their child with the following statement.

"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."

Both the duchess and her new son are expected to be doing well as Prince Harry stepped out today to speak to press at Windsor.

"It's been the most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined.

"How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension. But we're both absolutely thrilled.

"We're both absolutely thrilled and so grateful for all the love and support from everybody out there, it's been amazing, so we just wanted to share this with everybody," the royal revealed.

Prince Harry also noted that it'll be two days before the first image of their baby is shared with the world. On Wednesday, Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and their little son will have a private photocall with a small number of media organisations to capture the first images of their son to share with the world.

Harry also revealed that no name has been picked yet even though they have had extra thinking time as Meghan was overdue. There is a lot of speculation over the name Arthur and Spencer, however, many think there will be an American influence to show that this baby is not tied up with the royal demands of those higher to the throne.

All will be revealed soon. We're thrilled for the pair.
