MEGHAN MARKLE DELIVERS A HEALTHY BABY BOY ON MONDAY, MAY 6TH, 2019

In case you missed the media frenzy, Meghan Markle gave birth yesterday!!!! She delivered a healthy baby BOY at 5:26am on May 6, 2019. Prince Harry was by her side the entire time, and her mother Doria Ragland was also present after the birth. It has been confirmed the Duchess of Sussex delivered the baby at a hospital in London, after being whisked away in the middle of the night by Prince Harry’s private security team!

While Meghan went into labor in the early hours of the morning and delivered the baby at 5:26am, it wasn’t until around 6am Pacific / 9am Eastern / 1pm GMT that Buckingham Palace announced she was in labor. Within about thirty minutes of the initial announcement, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared the big news on their new Instagram account (@sussexroyal)!

The Instagram post proclaimed “It’s a BOY!”, along with the following text in the caption: 

“We are pleased to announce that Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their firstborn child in the early morning on May 6th, 2019. Their Royal Highnesses’ son weights 7lbs. 3oz.

The Duchess and baby are both healthy and well, and the couple thank members of the public for their shared excitement and support during this very special time in their lives. 

More details will be shared in the forthcoming days.”

Buckingham Palace also released a statement, providing some additional details on who was present, which members of the royal family had been contacted and more! They also formally announced the birth with an official notice on an easel at the gates of Buckingham Palace (photo below). This is a tradition that has been practiced in past royal birth announcements!

About an hour after all of these initial announcements, Prince Harry exited Frogmore Cottage to give an in-person announcement to the media. He confirmed all of the details shared by the Palace earlier, and commented on how proud he was of his wife and “over the moon” about their baby. It was impossible for him to hide his pure joy – he was quite literally grinning ear to ear the entire interview!!! It was one of the most adorable things I’ve ever seen.

Still no word on the name or any photos of Meghan, the baby, or the new family of three together, but Prince Harry did mention in the aforementioned videos that we’d be seeing them all together in just a couple of days (so hopefully TOMORROW)!

Stay tuned for more details on Baby Sussex, Meghan and Harry! Congratulations to the new parents!!!
