A look at latest royal birth, what it means for United Kingdom monarchy

Baby Sussex is seventh in line to the throne but will not be named a prince unless special permission is granted by his great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.

The Buckingham Palace said the baby weighed about 3.2 kg and the royal family have been informed.

American-born Meghan will undoubtedly want her son to get to know her home country, meaning trips to the U.S. for the family of three. "Her Royal Highness and the baby are both doing well".

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's baby plans reportedly saw a late change when Meghan was taken to a London hospital to give birth.

In 2017, when a talk show host characterised Meghan Markle as "Prince Harry's girlfriend", Priyanka Chopra jumped to her defence saying: "Also, Meghan Markle, actress, Suits, her achievements".

"I think the Queen would be in favour of it", Australians for Constitutional Monarchy head David Flint says.

When will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle introduce Baby Sussex to the public?

. Among the British upper classes, "pregnancy was just very discreet" until the 1960s, says Ingrid Seward, author of My Husband and I: The Inside Story of 70 Years of the Royal Marriage.

"I am proud that my new grandson is born into the British royal family and I am sure that he will grow up to serve the crown and the people of Britain with grace, dignity, and honour".

A thrilled Harry, speaking on camera at Windsor Castle's Royal Mews, revealed that Meghan had given birth early yesterday morning and it was the "most wonderful experience I could ever have possibly imagined".

An elated Duke of Sussex declared he and his wife were "absolutely thrilled" as they announced the birth of a baby boy.

But Meghan and Harry, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are anything but normal royals.

"This little thing is absolutely to die for, so I'm just over the moon", the new father said. This would be more in keeping with the couple's frequent requests for privacy - a plea they have made since they began dating three years ago, and repeated in the weeks leading up to the birth of their son.

The wait for baby Sussex's arrival is over, with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcoming a baby boy on Monday.

When the couple launched a joint Instagram account on April 2, fevered speculation followed that a big announcement was imminent.

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.

He said it was a great thrill when he and his daughters met the royal couple when they came to Australia on their first global tour after getting married.

Taking place in August on the Isle of Wight, the King's Cup Regatta will see the royal couple go head to head in the race, and each boat taking part will represent one of eight charities and the winning team will be awarded the historic trophy The King's Cup.
