Prince Harry revealed his delight at the royal baby’s arrival during a TV statement on Monday in which he heaped praise on his ‘incredible’ wife.
The Duke of Sussex announced that Meghan had given birth at 5.26am to a boy weighing 7lbs 3oz, having been more than a week overdue.
Prince Harry gushed that the ‘little thing is absolutely to-die-for’ as he announced the news on Monday after Meghan went into labour in the early hours of this morning.
Speaking from Windsor, a visibly-excited Prince Harry shared his immense pride as he joked of getting just two hours’ sleep last night, before calling the birth ‘the most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined’.
In a statement shortly after the birth was announced, Buckingham Palace said Meghan and her baby were ‘both doing well’, and that the Queen and other members of the royal family were ‘delighted’ with the news.
Meghan is now recovering at Frogmore Cottage, the couple’s home set within the grounds of Windsor Castle, with attentions now turning to the baby’s name, which Harry referred to ‘the next bit’ of his newfound parenthood.
Revealing that he was ‘incredibly proud’ of his wife, an overjoyed Prince Harry said:
Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. It’s been amazing, so we just wanted to share this with everybody.
How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension, but we’re both absolutely thrilled and so grateful to all the love and support from everybody out there.
Asked if they had any names yet, he said: ‘Still thinking about names.
‘The baby is a little bit overdue, so we’ve had a little bit of time to think about it.
That’s the next bit, but for us I think we will be seeing you guys in probably two days’ time as planned as a family to be able to share it with you guys and so everyone can see the baby.
Asked what it was like to be present for the birth, he laughed and said: ‘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.
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.
