Speaking after the birth, Prince Harry said they were “absolutely thrilled” and thanked the public for their support during the pregnancy.
He said Meghan and the baby were doing “incredibly well”, adding that they were still thinking about names for the infant, who was delivered at 05:26 BST.
In a statement issued shortly after the arrival of the baby boy, Buckingham Palace said the baby weighed 7lbs 3oz (3.2kg), and that the duke was present for the birth.
It added: “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.”
Prince Harry added the child had been “a little overdue” and that he planned to make another announcement in two days’ time “so everyone can see the baby”.
Speaking on what it was like to be present for the birth, Prince Harry laughed 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.”
