In the early hours of May 6th, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed a baby boy into their ever-so-slightly famous family. The new royal baby, called Archie, is seventh in line for the throne.
Despite numerous tabloid stories indicating that Meghan had already given birth weeks ago and it was all being kept hush hush, the birth was announced within 24 hours via Instagram.

“I’m just over the moon”
Prince Harry has spoken about his new son and was rightly emotional:
“I haven’t been in many births, this is definitely my first birth! But it was amazing, absolutely incredible, and as I said, I’m so incredibly proud of my wife. As every father and parent would say, your baby is absolutely amazing. But this little thing is absolutely to die for, so I’m just over the moon.”
