Since she went into labor during the night and had the baby at 5:26am, Iíd bet heavily on natural.

I agree. Adults usually time things a little more convenient.

You could be right but not always the case. I had the pessary for induction inserted at 10am and was sent home for 24 hours to see if it would work. Labour began at 7pm that evening and our daughter was born at 11pm. A baby could easily be born after induction in the middle of the night depending on how long the induction took to take effect.

I personally think that the child should be a Prince. He is the grandson of the future King, the son of the future Duke of York.
I’m betting the future Duke of York will be George’s second child - if a boy, unless, of course, Andrew has a son in the future

I believe Andrew is one of Harry’s godfathers, so it makes sense that he’d post. In fact, since he too is based in Windsor, I expect he’ll be an early visitor to Frogmore Cottage.

Oh my stars! I've been on cloud 9 all day! What an absolutely lovely day it has been for all of us who have followed Harry for soo many years. A lil boy!

I am SOO happy Meghan was able to have the birth she wanted (from all accounts) with the people most special to her near! So happy for a healthy mama and baby.

Harry's joy? Just amazing. I am seeing people who I never see comment on royal news or births really complimenting Harry for his awe and love for his wife. Just a truly special moment to share with us!

This whole thing was PERFECT. Having Harry come out to announce the birth and gender felt personal, but also gave us that royal moment. Meghan can now rest and we get close, intimate and clear shots of the whole family when she is a little more up on her feet.

I was a big fan of the Lindo Wing set up and not happy when we learned we wouldnt get it. But this approach is IMO perfect. Still momentous and royal, but also personal. Hopefully this sets a precedent for future births---no matter the position in the line of succession.

According to Telegrath the delivery team sort privacy as well. I can't say I blame them for not wanting their names out there. We saw what happened with the woman they claimed was her doula and was not. Her entire life was searched through. How unfortunate.

Wonderful news! The future duke of Sussex was born today :)

I prefer the set up of the father sharing the news with the world over asking the mom the face the press within hours of giving birth. And we still have the announcement of the name and first pictures to look forward too.

I would expect Harry and Meghan to announce the names on Wednesday - as my guess is that they'd like to share that news personally as well.

TBH I am quite glad they didn't announce she was in labour as it would only have meant hours filled with speculation from so called "experts". Much better to only have a few short hours to fill.

All this fuss about where the baby was born seems odd to me as it has to go on the birth certificate which are public records so at most they are buying time. The only reason not to say where the birth was is to allow privacy, which is of course fine but it will have to come out eventually.

Harry is still doing his engagement on Thursday, so it seems likely that their media call is on Wednesday or Friday. I would also guess they reveal the name then. Makes sense.

Exciting news to get on my lunch break. I thought girl so no shock boy

Happy Meghan had a seemingly quick delivery and her and the baby are well.

Love the proud daddy making a statement. His joy can hold me for a few days.

Nice to see the Spencerís included and not just Windsorís and Doria. I like how Harry made sure to introduce Meghan to them early too.

Was hoping Charlotte would get a cousin to play with but I guess Louis has two cousins close in age to play with.

I wonder if they will just announce the name when they present the baby

Charlotte can still play with her cousins even if they are boys.

I really liked the brief press call with just Harry, so I could focus on him and his joy, whereas if it had been all three my focus would have been darting from one to the other.
I suspect a lot of us have a soft spot for Harry, I know I do, ever since I saw that forlorn little boy when his mom died, so to me itís very special that he shared his joy over the birth of his first child.
About the horses in the background, in the video which showed Harry walking up he first stopped at a spot w/ a rather drab background and the press asked him to move which he did.

I'm a little delirious at this point, and read that as two boys. I was like WHAT?!?!?!

Louis might be a future DOY depending on where everyone is in status when Andrew dies.

I think another reason for Andrew to post is that he's one of his generation to have a personal account.

Exactly. And while the boys are overrepresented among Charles' grandchildren, Anne only has granddaughters and both younger generations seem quite close.

Yes, and probably depending on whether Louis (and William) developed an attachment to Cambridge and would like to see that dukedom passed on (indirectly).

Ah, at last! Congratulations to the Sussexes. I can't wait to see the photos and hear his name.
