Quite frankly, I think it is silly to keep it secret, especially after the fact when privacy concerns no longer apply.
Fact of matter is that it really doesn’t matter as part of the celebration, but it does create a bit of a problem for the hospital at the height of the attention. Just because they are no longer there doesn’t stop the press from camping out and report from there as backdrop even if they have the Long Walk. By the time the birth certificate is released, the international press would’ve gone home and the domestic press would’ve moved on to something else.

Some argue it’s useful for historical record. Well, then we don’t need that information immediately, do we?

One of the nicest, most joyful baby announcement by a royal Dad in the UK.

I am still curious as to whether they had their home birth. It's a more gentle event for all concerned if things go as they should. However, the percentage of so-called geriatric pregnancies has also changed the birthing ideals with their higher percentage of necessary medical i tervention has also
changed things.

It was a lovely surprise to see Harry and more than just the announcement of the birth.
For all the wailing, insults and general gnashing of teeth, I think the RR's got way more bang for their buck than ever before.

I have no issue with them wanting to keep the location private. We know the press and I have a feeling quite a few of them would have went right to the hospital to use it as a backdrop. A few of the correspondents have said it appears to be a mutual agreement of privacy between the Sussexes and the medical team. We have to respect that. The info will come out eventually. It is just being delayed.

More baby news... The Queen was congratulated on her new family addition. Cute clip as she points out this is Great GrandChild number 8.

William and Kate also commented on their engagement this afternoon.

Talking about #BabySussex Prince William has said he is “absolutely thrilled” and welcomes his brother “to the sleep deprivation society”. He and Kate are yet to meet baby but say they “look forward to it”

Catherine and William have not yet seen the new baby either.

That's just lovely. No matter what their role is, grandparents and great-grandparents are just adorable when talking about new babies in the family.

Many congratulations to the couple and their families on the safe arrival of the baby.

Not quite sure why they disingenuously instructed BP to put out an announcement that the Duchess was in labour, many hours after the birth. It was factually incorrect at the point of the announcement.

They said she went into labor in the early hours of the morning and Harry was by her side. How is that factually incorrect? And they did tell them an announcement should be expected soon. That gave some of them that were in London time to get to Windsor if they wanted.

Highly misleading, IMO. Perhaps they could just have waited a little longer and put out the birth announcement.

I am not sure what the announcement of the Duchess being in labour achieved at that stage.

Richard Palmer complained on his Twitter that the BP email situation was chaotic, that it crashed for some time and therefore some RRs didn't get their early warning to get to Windsor. This was discussed upthread I believe.

Like I said, it allowed some of the RRs to get to Windsor as it was a bank holiday. Some of them remained in Windsor despite the bank holiday, but not everyone. Despite what some might think, the Sussexes do actually understand people have a job to do. They will give some, but there are some aspect they will keep private if it add little value while causing a lot more chaos.

The announcement would've been made after she has given birth anyways. I doubt anything would've been announced overnight regardless (some RRs even said this previously). And this baby was born by sunrise.

Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess on the birth of their son! The transition into parenthood is a wonderful, terrifying, exhausting, and magical time period, and I wish them and their baby much joy!

That said, it doesn't sound as though the information that Meghan had gone into labour, when at that point she had, in fact, already had the baby, was well done, whoever's fault that was. At that point, just announce that the Duchess was safely delivered of a son at 5:26, and move on. Making it sound as though she was still in labour was unnecessarily misleading. Glitches in information systems happen, but I can see why some members of the press were less than impressed if this is part of a longer pattern of ineptness on the royal side.

Perhaps it was because of the email system crashing and not being able to alert the media that Harry decided to come out and physically announce the birth of his son. That short interview wasn't ever really on the agenda for the birth of this child. It definitely was an unexpected bonus and gave the media (through SkyNews) something to gush over, report on and actually be a bit more involved in their stories.

The set up in that was interesting. The camera was SkyNews, but reporter was PA.

We don't know if that was always penciled depending on the situation in or decided after the email situation. But either way, I think they made it back in spades no? Earlier email or Harry in all of his giddiness? I think the latter was certainly more.

Seriously, who cares if they didn’t get the info that she was in labor before getting the announcement she had had the baby. I mean they have 3 days of camping out at Windsor to do their stories on the birth. Just grousing to grouse. With social media, they are quickly becoming obsolete.

I loved Harry's video. He was just humming with excitement and wonder. It was a lovely thing to see. He and Meghan are going to be floating on Wednesday.

Throughout the entire pregnancy, my first and sole wish to happen at the time of the birth was to be able to see Harry's face after his child was born so I was really over the moon watching that short interview. To me, it surpassed the media getting the information that Meghan was in labor or just a general announcement on Instagram or the easel at BP.

Yeps... that interview was golden.
