UK reacts to Harry and Meghan’s baby
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex better known as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, on Monday welcomed their first child, a boy, the first interracial baby in the British monarchy’s recent history.
The newborn is seventh in line to the British throne, behind Prince Harry, whose marriage last year to Meghan brought historic change to the royal family. It is not clear whether the child will receive a royal title, like those bestowed on the three children of Prince William, Harry’s older brother, and William’s wife, Catherine.
ROYAL FAMILY STATEMENT
“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 Reuters reported.
“The Duchess’s mother, Doria Ragland, who is overjoyed by the arrival of her first grandchild, is with Their Royal Highnesses at Frogmore Cottage.”
BRITISH PRIME MINISTER THERESA MAY
