With his daughter Princess Eugenie celebrating her one-year wedding anniversary this autumn, perhaps the Duke of York will be making his own royal baby announcement in the next year or two. But for now, the Duke of York joined in the excitement of the day to send his best wishes to the Sussexes on the birth of their son.
“Congratulations to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the safe delivery of your baby boy!” was posted by Prince Harry’s uncle on his official Instagram account, along with a re-post of the Sussex’s baby announcement.
