Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have royal titles already, but right now they are extra title richer as they become mummy and daddy for the very first time.
On Monday the Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their first baby together. The pair announced on their social media that their baby has arrived and they also did very well to tell us the gender of the child. Guess what? It’s a boy!
The new mum and dad’s official Instagram page read: “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.”
It was only seven months ago (October 2018) that it was announced by the palace that the former American actress was expecting her first baby with her husband, Prince Harry.
In the statement released last year, the palace had said: “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019. Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”
We remember bringing you the news that the arrival of this royal baby was deliberately kept vague to the general public by the palace. However, Meghan Markle herself gave fans a little clue somewhere along the line during mid-January walkabout that she just might be given birth soon because she was six months pregnant at the time and she would be you around April or early May.
As expected, fans and royal enthusiasts have keenly waited for the birth of this royal baby ever since Meghan Markle revealed that she was pregnant. And a lot of people had done their personal countdowns even when they were unsure of Megan’s delivery date. Some people have also come up with theories about the gender and name of the newborn baby. Now that the child is here everything will become more evident.
Ahead of the arrival of this child Meghan Markle who is now a mother of one sparked the headlines when she went back to the United States of America in February for a baby shower in New York. The baby shower was star-studded as famous people from Hollywood like Amal Clooney, Jessica Mulroney who we know as Meghan’s best friend, and Gayle King was all part of the grand event. They all were spotted arriving at the Mark hotel where the Gathering took place.
While Meghan Markle was done with the shower and people expected that she would slow down, the ex-actress refused as she flew all the way to Morocco for a brief tour with her husband Prince Harry just a few days later. By the middle of March, the Duchess was also seen once again in public in what can be considered as a final appearance before the birth of a baby.
She attended the annual commonwealth day service that held at Westminster Abbey along with many other members of the royal family. Earlier that same day, Meghan and Harry paid a visit to the Canada house in London for a special event with Canadians living in the U.K.
However, according to information gathered from the press association, the Duchess was reportedly still doing some work behind the scenes, and those include a private meeting with the Royal national theatres artist director an executive director at the Kensington Palace.
After that, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry paid a surprise visit to the New Zealand house in London just to sign a book of condolence for the people who were victims of the Christchurch terror attack this was only a few days after the service. Nathan and Harry wrote “Our deepest condolences… We are with you, ” then proceeded to sign their names close to the Maori word “arohanui,” which is interpreted to mean “much love.”
In early April, the new mum and dad popped up again and were spotted walking out of IIapothecary on Kensington Church Street. There were suggestions that they were primarily focused on wellness before the birth of their child.
It was then revealed only a few days after that that Meghan and Harry had moved into their newly renovated home at Frogmore Cottage. Their first wedding anniversary is coming up, and there is no better way to celebrate it than as new parents this definitely is a dream come true for both Meghan Markle and her husband
We recall that in 2016 Meghan Markle said that she couldn’t wait to start a family and that was just before she met her husband. We are so happy for the royal couple, and we hope that they enjoy bringing up their baby and they also have more babies in due time.
