Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their first child, a boy, on Monday. The official Instagram handle of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed the news. After that Prince Harry released an official statement where he gushed about his new-born son saying that he is 'over the moon'. Calling it the 'most amazing experience', he remarked that the baby boy was born early in the morning.
The 37-year-old Duchess of Sussex, who was an American actress known as Meghan Markle before she joined the British royal family, and Harry haven't disclosed the planned location of the birth. But they ruled out the London hospital where the prince, older brother William and William's three children with Kate, Duchess of Cambridge were born.
