Meghan and Harry fulfilled their dream of starting a family and have become parents for the first time: the son of the dukes of Sussex is a child. To know it and know its name we will still have to wait two more days.
It seems that it was a couple of days ago when we saw them arrive at the altar on May 19, 2018, and the news of their pregnancy was confirmed on October 15 of that same year.
Through the Instagram account of Buckingham Palace it was reported that the Duchess of Sussex had gone into labor. According to the Palace, Meghan was in that condition from early Monday morning; Harry was by his side at all times.
We are pleased to announce that your Royal Highnesses, the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex, welcomed your firstborn son on the morning of May 6, 2019. The son of his Royal Highnesses weighs 7 pounds 3 ounces (3.3 kilos). The duchess and the baby are healthy and well. The couple thanks the audience for their shared enthusiasm and support during this special moment in their lives.
Prince Harry has been by Meghan's side at all times, and he gave his first interview as a father:
I am very excited to announce that Meghan and I have had a child this morning. A very healthy child, both he and his mother are well. It has been the most incredible experience I could have ever imagined. How a woman can do what she does is beyond my ability to understand, but we are both absolutely enthusiastic and so grateful for all the love and support of the people. It has been amazing and we just wanted to share this moment with everyone.
Although the name of the baby is still unknown, it is already known that being the first son of the Dukes of Sussex and the eighth great-grandson of Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh, the boy holds the title of Count of Dumbarton.
It will occupy the seventh place in the line of succession to the throne behind his grandfather, Prince Charles; his uncle, Prince William; his cousins, princes George, Charlotte and Louis; and his own father, Prince Harry. This while his uncles, the Dukes of Cambridge, have no more children; otherwise, it will go back one more position.
