Prince Harry And Meghan Markle's Baby Has Finally Arrived!

After what's felt like an eternity the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have finally welcomed their little bundle of joy in Windsor.

Meghan Markle has given birth to a gorgeous baby boy.

The royal mum, who announced her pregnancy to the world while on tour in Australia last year gave birth in the early hours of Monday local time.

Meghan was reportedly taken to a hospital in London on Sunday evening to have her baby after being a week overdue -- a last-minute change to the Duchess' original homebirth plans.

Proud father Prince Harry stayed by his wife's side throughout the delivery.

Harry and Meghan have taken baby Sussex home to Frogmore House where they will take time to settle in as a family of three.

Harry is even taking two weeks paternity leave to help his new little family adjust.

The baby boy weighs 7lbs. 3oz (3.2 kilograms), the couple's Instagram announced.

Speaking from Windsor Palace, a very happy Prince Harry said the birth had been the "most amazing experience".

"Mother and child are doing incredibly well," he said.

"I can not possibly imagine how any woman does what  they do, it is beyond comprehension."

As for a name, Prince Harry said they hadn't decided yet.

"The baby is a little bit overdue, so we've had a little bit of time to think about it, but that's the next bit," he said.

We won't be seeing the new arrival anytime soon, with Prince Harry saying it will "probably" be two days until we get a glimpse.

The Duchess' mother, Doria Ragland, is "overjoyed" by the birth of her first grandchild, the Palace said. She has joined her daughter Meghan, Prince Harry and their baby at Frogmore Cottage.

Members of the Royal family, including the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William have also been informed and said to be "delighted" by the news.

Royal baby fever hit an all-time high in recent days with several false alarms and a steady flow of rumours.

After it was announced that Prince Harry would be travelling to The Netherlands, sightings of ambulances around Windsor and reports that the Queen visited Frogmore Cottage, many eager fans assumed the baby had already arrived.

Buckingham Palace was even forced to categorically deny the birth had taken place.

It's not only the birth that Harry and Megz should be celebrating. Believe it or not, the couple, who were married in May 2018 are now also royal baby record holders.

Generally, according to stats released by dating app Jaumo in March,  it takes British royal couples three years to have their first child after becoming engaged, longer than any other royal household. Harry and Meghan, took about a year and a half.
