Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Just Released Photos Of The New Royal Baby, And They Were Worth The Wait

May 08, 2019

We all waited long enough for this. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, finally gave birth on May 6, 2019. Baby Sussex is seventh in line to the throne, and the crown has finally released his royal baby picture. After a long labor, Markle and Harry welcomed the newest member of their family at 5:26 am. The prince, who’s sixth in line to the crown himself, didn’t tell the press about the birth for nine hours, though.

We think he wanted to savor the happy moments with his wife, and we certainly don’t blame him.

And don’t worry, the babe came out healthy. Harry shared:

Mother and baby are doing incredibly well… It’s been the most amazing experience that I could ever possibly imagine… How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension, but we’re both absolutely thrilled.

Yes, Prince Harry, childbirth is certainly amazing; we definitely agree.

After learning the baby’s royal name, we’re not surprised the royal baby picture is so cute. This little fellow, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, weighs just over seven pounds, and he stands to really shake things up for Queen Elizabeth II’s regal family. In fact, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, is the first multiracial baby in the British’s monarchy’s recent history.

Not only does he promise to be a bundle of joy for his new parents, he also signifies change and adds color to the House of Windsor.

Who can deny that this guy follows in his mother’s history-making footsteps? No one is exactly sure which titles, if any, the royal family will bestow on Baby Sussex. However, everyone on Twitter is glad he’s finally among us.

Keep reading to see his first pictures.

Some people thought they knew exactly what his name would be.

And they just kept guessing.

Some people didn’t really see why the name was a big deal at all.

Everyone agreed, however, that the royal baby picture was the most exciting thing they’d seen in quite some time.

This fan certainly has it right; he’s a looker!

Can we all just admire his sweet face?

It’s not even surprising that he’s so cute; Archie certainly inherited his parents’ good looks. Is he really that much cuter than any other newborn with chubby cheeks, though? We can’t say for certain. But, well, he probably is.

News sources still don’t know if the Duchess’s father, Tom Markle, has met the newborn, but all of Archie‘s other family members are thrilled about his arrival.

And Doria Ragland, Megan’s American mom, flew to England and stayed with the young family during the whole process.

Prince William especially wanted to welcome his little brother to the wonders of parenthood.

Apparently, even royal moms and dads sacrifice a few hours of sleep.

We’re sure Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are mostly just enjoying the successful birth, though.

They can finally retire to Frogmore Cottage with the third member of their small family. And truly, we wish them nothing but the best.

It would be great if the Sussex Royal Instagram could bless us with a few more pictures, though.

TYSM. The world is being as patient as it can.
