It seems like just yesterday that I was forcing my (ex)-boyfriend to watch Meghan and Harry tie the knot, but after months of waiting, they welcomed their newest bundle of joy into the world! Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex gave birth to a baby boy early this morning, May 6th. While we were all picking up our venti iced coffees to get us through another Monday, reports spread that she was in labour, but thank god we didn’t have to wait that long.
At around 9:30am, they announced the baby’s arrival with a post on the official Sussex Royal Instagram account – you know, the regal way to announce a birth. Unlike Prince George, Lil Harry will probably never be King, but he’s still in the line of succession, which is pretty fucking dope.
Reports had long suggested (and also basic mental math) that Lil Harry would arrive at the end of April or beginning of May, and the hype really started to kick up when Harry shortened his visit to the Netherlands to ensure that he was home in case Meghan went into labour. Apparently, they’re “still thinking about names” for their son, which is code for “we don’t have any ideas yet”.
The arrival of this baby is probably a huge relief for everyone in the royal family, because the past few weeks have sucked ROYALLY (ha ha ha, no pun intended), with rumors that Prince William cheated on Kate, and that William and Harry were having a bro breakup because of it. Hopefully, William being a new uncle will help the boys mend their issues, or else Queen E will have to give them a timeout (because let’s be real, we all know she has that power).
