Royal baby: What we know about Harry and Meghan's new son

Harry once said, when asked what he would do if he were not a prince: "I'd probably live in Africa".

Prince George and Princess Charlotte have joined their parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, on official overseas tours, and Harry and Meghan may decide to take their baby with them as they carry out their royal duties.

Prince Harry couldn't help but beam as he revealed he became a first-time dad on Monday morning. It's brilliant, I'm absolutely thrilled.

"Just heard that the world just got heavier by 7 pounds and 3 ounces".

"Mother and baby are doing incredibly well", a giddy Harry said.

Speaking from Windsor, the prince revealed he was "incredibly proud" of his wife who gave birth at home to a "to die for" 7lb 3oz baby boy. It's been the most incredible experience.

American-born Meghan will undoubtedly want her son to get to know her home country, meaning trips to the USA for the family of three.

Harry was at his wife's side during the birth and was clearly moved by the experience. "It was unbelievable. Absolutely incredible".

'As every father and parent will ever say, you know, your baby is absolutely awesome, but this little thing is absolutely to-die-for, so I'm just over the moon'.

Karl asked Pompeo if Maduro would still be in power if he did not have the support of the Cuban and Russian governments. Guaido is considered Venezuela's legitimate leader by the USA and 50 other countries.

Some have speculated that because Markle and her mother were at home - not at a hospital - that the birth might have happened at the cottage.

A royal commentator has suggested that palace aides may have been caught off guard by the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's baby.

"The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family".

"Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019", the palace said in a statement.

The American previous year made waves in Britain by closing her own vehicle door - a task usually performed by aides.

The child, born at 05:26am yesterday morning, is automatically as he was born on British soil.

Among those who tweeted their congratulations was DUP leader Arlene Foster.

While this document usually is signed at the bottom by the doctor who delivered the baby, Markle's announcement went unsigned, hinting to fans again that she may not have had a hospital birth. "But these expectations will be made all the heavier for the newest member of the royal family - particularly at a time of uncertainty and upheaval in the United Kingdom". "We all wish them well during this happy occasion".

"God bless the child and I wish him health and happiness, and my congratulations to my lovely daughter Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry, and God save the Queen". "PS, Robin is a nice name!"
