One thing I really hoped for happened. Seeing Harry's face after the birth of his first child. Not only did he look overjoyed and happy and excited, I could still see the softness in his face from witnessing the miracle of birth.

We really weren't expecting Harry to face the cameras after the birth but I think he wanted to shout it out to the world that he and Meghan have a son.

Harry looks tired and so happy in the video he did. Said they are still deciding on a name and the baby was a little late/overdue. Photo call in two days time.

I think she had the baby at home.

I guessed a boy so I got that right at least! lol

Can't wait to see pics and hear the name!

I am so incredibly excited!! I just watched the video of Harry talking about the baby. That baby already has Harry wrapped around his little finger. For all the complaining that the press has done, I hope they appreciate the personal statement by the Prince about the birth. Also, he said the plan was to see them as a family in a couple of days, so the press has nothing to complain about. This is all so exciting I can barely contain myself!!

So yes they have done things different to the Cambridges but not really new, in fact more traditional. Although I would agree that Harry coming out to announce the birth of his son was a modern touch.
Yes, but in the two generations following the Queen’s , hospital deliveries appear to have become the norm, not only in Britain , but in continental royal births too. So it is understandable if some people are surprised Meghan chose to have a home birth, if that was the case. Since they are not disclosing the place of birth ( perhaps not to tip the press about locations of future births ?) , there is no way to know for sure.

Not sure how it is in the States - but in Germany and Switzerland there has been a trend of home birthing or at least having the birth at a birth house (for lack of better translating) instead of a hospital. So I'm not surprized at all that, that they at least thought about it.

If the media went mad about the Ambulance in the car park you had better believe they had every access road well covered.

Congratulations to Harry and Megan on the birth of their son the new Earl of Dumbarton. I feel doubly excited about this. My oldest granddaughter shares a birthday with Princess Charlotte (although my gd is now 12) and her younger sister shares one with new Baby Sussex (although she is now 10)

There has been some in US, but most are still born in hospitals. I would say, doctors and nurses are still weary of home births. Obviously, I'm glad everything went well. But if it was a home birth, I would hope they either don't announce it or make it clear people need to listen to their doctors since most women won't have access to the same things as Meghan.

Home births are on the rise as far as I can tell, here in the U.S. but certainly by far hospital births are done by the majority.

I think it's up to the parents....I don't have a problem with it either way.

Congratulations to Harry and Meghan on the birth of their new baby son!

It was a lovely surprise to see Harry and more than just the announcement of the birth that I expected.

Which points to a home birth. If she had been taken to a hospital , someone would have noticed it and the name of the hospital would have leaked,. Or else they are really good at sneaking out in the middle of the night .

Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex!!

Congratulations to the new Earl of Dumbarton!

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.

Where do you get the idea that Harry will be created Duke of York? Its not a given. Andrew is only 59 years old and is likely to live another good 20-30 years. I think the next creation for the Duke of York will be for Prince Louis of Cambridge on his wedding day.

As the baby is a great-grandchild of a monarch, he was not entitled to "Prince" at birth. Once Charles does become King, unless he issues LPs or makes his will known that the Sussex children will remain children of a Duke, the Sussex children will be HRH Prince/ss of the UK.

That's the way it works.
