Prince Harry has given his first interview since the Duchess of Sussex gave birth to a health baby boy, thanking the public for their support during Meghan's pregnancy.

The Duke of Sussex spoke to the BBC this afternoon, saying himself and his wife were "absolutely thrilled" about their newborn son.

He confirmed that both Meghan and the baby were doing "incredibly well" since the little one arrived, weighing 7lbs 3oz (3.2kg).

Prince Harry was present for the birth, and added that the couple are still thinking about names for their infant, who was delivered today at 05:26 BST.

Buckingham Palace stated that;

"The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Lady Jane Fellowes, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Earl Spencer have been informed and are delighted with the news.

"The Duchess's mother, Doria Ragland, who is overjoyed by the arrival of her first grandchild, is with their Royal Highnesses at Frogmore Cottage."

The Duke of Sussex couldn't stop beaming as he delivered the news to the press, lavishing praise on his wife enduring the labour.

He added that the little one had been "a little overdue" and that he will be making another announcement in two days' time "so everyone can see the baby."

When quizzed on his experience in the delivery room, Harry smiled and said: "I haven't been at many births. This is definitely my first birth. It was amazing, absolutely incredible, and, as I said, I'm so incredibly proud of my wife.

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

He continued on the topic of Meghan's labour: "It's been the most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined. How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension."

Harry and Meghan's baby boy automatically acquired US citizenship via the former actress at birth, so is a dual citizen.

He is currently seventh in line to the throne, behind the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge and his children, and Prince Harry. The infant is the Queen's eighth great-grandchild.

Prime Minister Theresa May responded to the baby news, tweeting; 

"Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the arrival of their baby boy. Wishing you all the best at this happy time."

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, who married the couple in the summer of last year, wished the couple joy; "May God bless the new family with love, health and happiness."

Congratulations to the new parents, and we can't wait to hear what name they choose for their newborn son.

Ever wonder what it would be like to work for the Queen?  Well now you might actually have the chance to find out.

According to The Sun, the Queen is looking for a new Kitchen Porter to join her staff at Buckingham Palace.

As well as earning £16,755 a year (that’s almost €20,000), the successful applicant will have a pension scheme, 33 days’ holidays, have all their meals provided and will get to live in the staff quarters of one of the world's most iconic landmarks.

And – according to the Royal household’s website – the new KP will also experience “the feeling of satisfaction from helping to deliver a spotless service”.

No experience is necessary for the job as training will be provided to ensure you can polish cutlery that really is fit for a queen.



She's now a mother-of-two – a prince and a princess – who both arrived within less than two years of one another. 

And although little Charlotte is not yet six months' of age, excited news organisations in the US are convinced that royal baby No.3 is ALREADY en route.

Yes, if Stateside rumour is to be believed, Duchess Kate is now pregnant, with the little bundle of regal joy arriving next spring.

The fact that she was seen holding aloft glasses of champagne at the recent royal banquet in Buckingham Palace – not to mention that on the same occasion her bespoke Jenny Packham dress showed no hint of a baby bump – seems to have been disregarded.

Instead, the covers of more than one glossy magazine this week declare that the wife of Prince William is very much expecting. 

"It seems Kate Middleton, 33, and Prince William, 33, wasted no time getting back into the swing of things," declares one popular US site.

Meanwhile, Life & Style magazine, which carries the story on its front-page this week, says: “They’re expecting! It happened far quicker than they expected – they’d just started trying for another child. But William and Kate are so excited".

That publication furthermore says: "Friends are saying the baby will arrive around June. They say Kate is at the very beginning of her pregnancy and won’t show any sign of a bump until next year. She still looks extremely slim." 

And as far back as early September, Star magazine was also stating that the Duchess was "in the early stages of pregnancy with baby number three". It added that the new addition to the Cambridge family is due "in late April or early May, so she’ll likely be showing by the New Year".

Even earlier in the summer, some US outlets reported absolutely that Kate was eager to have three children by the time she turned 35: as she celebrates her 34th birthday in January, it seemed she was eager to get a move on.

The rumour may all, of course, seem a little far-fetched, but Wills himself did say in the aftermath of Charlotte's arrival that a third Cambridge child was certainly possible.

In an interview to mark his first day as an air ambulance pilot, the prince spoke of family-life. When the interviewer playfully hinted at another baba, the second-in-line to the British throne laughed: "We've only just had the second one!"

Though he then added with a smile, "but you never know what's going to happen in the future."



A lot of the time Kate Middleton almost seems a lot like the rest of us.

Well, a much, much richer and far more groomed version of our selves – but we like to think there's some common ground there. 

After all, when we see her bringing the dog for a walk, dragging around the kids, or doing the 'big shop' at her local supermarket, we feel we could probably be firm friends.

Then, on an evening like tonight, she reminds us that she's actually a royal princess and we've, well, we've got to get up and get the bus to work in the morning.

Yes, attending a royal banquet at Buckingham Palace, the Duchess Of Cambridge looked all sorts of regally amazing in a full-length red, custom-made Jenny Packham gown, chandelier earrings and a sparkling tiara.

Indeed, Kate's Papyrus tiara, also known as the Lotus Flower, was particularly striking. Once owned by the Queen Mother, it was also worn regularly by Princess Margaret.

In Britain, much has been made of the fact that this is only the third time EVER that the former Ms Middleton has worn a tiara (well, in public anyway). 

The other occasions were her wedding day back in April 2011, and an diplomatic event in 2013, also held at Buckingham Palace.

The 33-year-old wife of Prince William was there among a host of VIP and royal guests – including, of course, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip – to honour Chinese president Xi Jinping, who is on an official four-day visit to Britain.

Prince Charles and his wife Camilla were not in attendance – meaning Wills and Kate were officially second-in-command for the evening.

It is believed that guests are dining on fillet of West Coast turbot and Balmoral venison – all washed down with plenty of vintage champagne.

Tonight is Mrs Cambridge's first big, glamorous night out following the birth of her second child, Princess Charlotte, in May.



Today is a seriously exciting day for our favourite royal dad, Prince William.

Not only is he celebrating his second Father’s Day with his son Prince George, he is also celebrating his first Father’s Day with his new born daughter, Princess Charlotte.

And that’s not all, it is also the Duke of Cambridge’s 33rd birthday. If that’s not an excuse to celebrate we don’t know what is!

We have no doubt that this year the royal family celebrations will be a little more hushed than last year’s.

It was this time last year that we got to see the adorable photos of Prince George cheering on his dad in a polo match.

This was also the first time that we got to see the adorable baby Prince taking his first public steps, holding tentatively on to his mum’s hand all the way. So cute!

While chances of seeing the six week old Princess waddling around are seriously slim, we can at least hope that the family share some celebratory birthday/Father’s Day pics.

After seeing the outrageously adorable photos of two-year-old George at last week’s Trooping the Color ceremony, we are just dying for more!



The world was captivated when a video showing a naked man climbing and then falling out of a window at Buckingham Palace was found on YouTube.

The video has now gained over one million view on YouTube and has just today been revealed as part of a TV show…damn! So there was no scandalous hanky panky going on in the Palace after all.

The Royals is an upcoming new drama by E! starring Elizabeth Hurley and William Moseley who star as fictional members of the royal family.

The video’s extended footage has been released on D-Throned, the tabloid that covers all of the action of the scandalous royals on the new show.

The show is written by One Tree Hill creator Mark Schwan and will air on March 15th



There are a lot of things we expect to see when we visit Buckingham Palace but a naked man is usually not one of them…

However, this wasn’t just a streaker chancing his arm at the gates, a naked man was spotted on camera actually climbing out of a window of the Palace, lowering himself down on white material.

Scarily, the man appears to fall at quite a height – we’re hoping something broke his fall!

The very odd video has begun to go viral wit many claiming the video to be a hoax, or perhaps a scene for a movie.

Either way – we can imagine the shock people got when they saw that!
