Prince Harry: ”this is absolutely to die for”

Proud new dad, Prince Harry, has spoken briefly to the media following the birth of his son earlier today. The Duke of Sussex chatted happily about the arrival of the baby boy and said his new child was ”absolutely to die for”.

Harry was also brimming with admiration for The Duchess of Sussex. He said ”I’m so incredibly proud of my wife”, adding ”how any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension”.

Harry, who was at Meghan’s side throughout her labour and delivery, said that the couple were still working on names for the baby who weighed 7lbs 3oz at birth and is seventh in line to the throne. But he did say that his wife and son were doing ”incredibly well”

Baby Sussex arrived at 5.26am on May 6th 2019, the exact moment the sun rose that day, and his birth was announced at 2.40pm, less than an hour after Buckingham Palace confirmed that Meghan had gone into labour. It’s not yet clear where the baby was born but the statement announcing his arrival confirmed that he is at Frogmore Cottage with his mother. Meghan’s mum, new granny Doria Ragland, is also with the family.
