Meghan and Harry

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.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have officially moved into their home in Windsor. Harry and Meghan made the big move from Kensington Palace to the most beautiful ten bedroom home Frogmore Cottage.

The couple’s new home has undergone a major transformation ahead of the arrival of their first child. It is understood that the pair will have even more privacy at their new house which is exactly what they need ahead of the birth of baby Sussex.

It is believed Meghan and Harry hired designers Vicky Charles and Julia Corden of Charles and Co. to refurbish their home.

The 10 bedroom house has been turned into a lavish family home. It features a nursery and even has space for a yoga studio and a gym.

The plans for the house included two conservatory extensions, extensive landscaping, permission for a bedroom to be built above a studio on the property, and a few new fireplaces.

The parents-to-be even had a £50,000 green energy unit installed in the eco-friendly pad.

The property is extremely special to the royal couple. Not only will it be their first family home, but they also held their private evening wedding party and shot their engagement photos at Frogmore Cottage.

There’s no doubt Harry and Meghan are overjoyed to have settled in at their new home in Windsor.

She swapped the world of acting for the world of tiaras and palaces, but it looks like Meghan Markle may be returning to her old roots.

Rumour has it the former actress may be returning to drama series Suits for a special episode.

It is believed that show bosses want her to reprise her role as Rachel Zane for a mere few minutes in one episode.

If Meghan would return to the show she would receive a huge donation for a charity of her choice. The donation could be anywhere between £2 and £6 million, The Mirror claimed.

“No final figure has yet been arrived at but negotiations are likely to be opened in the very near future,” a source stated.

"I’ve heard sums ranging from two to six million being kicked around and that sounds a lot – but it would be one of the biggest marketing coups in TV history.”

It is believed NBC Universal is eager for the former actress to return and believe this mass charity donation could sway the Queen, who has to give Meghan her approval to do so.

The Duchess would film the special scene in England and it would only take approximitely two days, according to sources.

Surely Meghan could take a break from her royal duties for a handful of days and channel her inner Rachel Zane again.

We’ll be eager to see if Queen Elizabeth says no to this proposal. We’re sure she’ll find it hard especially with such a massive charity donation on offer.

Meghan and Harry’s wedding was one of the biggest events of the year with the momentous occasion reportedly costing an eye-watering £32 million.

The Royals certainly went all out for their big day, especially Meghan who spent an extortionate amount of money on her hair and makeup.

The Duchess of Sussex looked as classy as ever on her wedding day with a simple updo and natural makeup look. However, despite the understated look, the former Suits actress forked out a reported £10,000 on her hair and makeup.

It is believed Meghan’s hair and makeup team spent a mere 45 minutes on her wedding look.

Serge Normant was the man behind Meghan’s chic updo and Daniel Martin worked his makeup magic on Meghan for the big day.

Speaking of the special moment, Normant told Glamour that Meghan was extremely relaxed during the entire process.

“We talked together a little bit before, but we wanted something that would have an easy feel to it. [It] wasn't a huge process. We wanted it to be something that was right for the day and that felt right for her mostly."

The Duchess looked breathtakingly beautiful on her wedding day, stealing the hearts of the millions who tuned in to watch her and Prince Harry tie the knot at St. George’s Chapel on May 19.

However, we can’t quite believe just how much she spent on her hair and makeup alone.

We won’t feel half as guilty the next time we splurge on lipstick from Charlotte Tilbury.

Meghan Markle was glowing at her solo royal engagement this morning. The mum-to-be charmed residents at the Royal Variety residential nursing and care home in Brinsworth House in Twickenham.

The Duchess wore a grey and white floral Brock Collection dress that showed off her growing bump perfectly.

She kept herself warm in a sleek grey winter coat by Canadian brand Soia & Kyo.

Duchess Meghan looked as beautiful as ever during her visit. She helped make Christmas decorations and enjoyed a merry carol service with the men and women of the Royal Variety nursing and care home.

One woman couldn’t help but ask Meghan how she was finding pregnancy and her response was so sweet.

The royals tend to avoid personal questions, but Meghan happily told the residents that she was doing “very good.”

She also joked about her blooming bump and said, “I’m looking very pregnant today.”

The nursing home helps men and women who have worked in the entertainment industry and are in need of help and assistance due to old age, poor health or hard times.

While rumours have been circling about a royal feud, nothing has been confirmed just yet.

Many tabloids have been spinning stories, saying that Harry and Meghan don’t get along with William and Kate.

But recent holiday revelations seems to be at odds with the alleged drama.

A royal source told The Sun that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex turned down Prince William and Kate’s offer to host them this Christmas.

However, Kensington Palace has spoken out in response, saying that this claim is untrue.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the palace said Prince William and Kate and Prince Harry and Meghan will be spending the holiday together.

But while it was confirmed that the fab four would spend the day together, the palace could not say whether they would continue the celebrations side-by-side or go there separate ways afterwards.

The happy couples spent last year’s Christmas together during which they reportedly had a fantastic time.

There is no doubt that the Queen is overjoyed to spend the holiday with her beloved grandsons and granddaughters-in-law.

Last month, Kate Middleton shut down the gossip when she gushed about Meghan and Harry’s baby.

It seems she is happier than ever for her sister-in-law and can’t wait to meet the family’s newest arrival.

“It’s such a special time to have little kiddies and a cousin for George, Charlotte and Louis,” Kate said.

“It’s really special.”

Kensington Palace wanted to make sure that the public were not misinformed and was eager to confirm the two couples were spending the holidays together.

So we will just have to wait and see how it all unfolds at Sandringham but for now, it appears there is no bad blood between the four.

Let's admit it – the highlight of any wedding is the cake. Sure, we enjoy witnessing the bride and groom starting their life together, but we also LOVE seeing a big slice of cake on our plates.

Speaking of which, the royal wedding is sure to have some AMAZING confections. Claire Ptak, owner of the London-based bakery Violet, has been selected as the lucky dessert maker, and she sounds like the perfect woman for the job.

"Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have asked Claire to create a lemon elderflower cake that will incorporate the bright flavours of spring," the Kensington Palace Twitter account revealed, "It will be covered with buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers."

Yumm, that sounds absolutely scrumptious! It's fitting that she's basking in the flavours of spring since she simply loves using seasonal ingredients.

"Claire Ptak, who was raised in California, focuses on using seasonal and organic ingredients in her cakes," Kensington Palace further explained.

A brief look through the Instagram account for her bakery shows a bouquet of floral cakes that look almost too pretty to eat.

This wouldn't be the first time Claire and Meghan have met.

The Suits actress interviewed the pastry chef for her former lifestyle website The Tig.

Claire herself certainly seems thrilled about making the royal wedding cake. 

The Insta account for Violet posted, "Kinda excited to announce this one!! Violet has been chosen to make the wedding cake for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. 

"They both share so many of the same values regarding food provenance, sustainability, seasonality and of course, flavour!" 

Sounds like a match made in heaven!
