On the morning of May 6, Meghan Markle gave birth to her first child with Prince Harry—and the royal family is thrilled about the arrival of baby Sussex. Shortly after the birth, Buckingham Palace released a joint statement from many members of the House of Windsor, noting that everyone from Queen Elizabeth to Duchess Camilla was "delighted" about the news.

Prince William and Kate Middleton have sent out their own personal message. In the afternoon, the Duke and Duchess reposted the official baby announcement from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's account, adding their own touching caption:

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted with the news of the birth of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's son today, and look forward to meeting the latest addition to the family," the message read.

William and Kate are undoubtedly excited to meet their new nephew—but it's hard to rival the joy that Harry and Meghan themselves are feeling. This morning, Prince Harry took a moment to speak to the press about his newborn son, and it was clear that he was overjoyed.

"Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. It’s been the most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined," he said. "How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension but we’re both absolutely thrilled and so grateful for all the love and support from everybody out there. It’s been amazing."

He added that royal watchers can expect to learn the baby's name soon. "The baby’s a little bit overdue so we’ve had some time to think about it, but that’s the next bit," he explained. "We’ll be seeing you guys in about two days time as planned as a family to be able to share it with you guys so everyone can see the baby."
