Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have become parents of a little boy.
Now, the dad tells the prince new details about the name choice.
“I’m overjoyed,” says Harry.
The clock was around 3:40 on Monday when the world heard the good news: Meghan Markle had given birth to a healthy boy of 7lbs 3oz! Britain’s new prince, also Harry and Meghan’s firstborn, saw the light of day in the morning and later in the day, the British court confirmed the glorious news.
A little later in the afternoon, Prince Harry, son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, held a press briefing in Windsor.
He took the opportunity to pay tribute to his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, and you could clearly see how proud he was in the moment.
“It was the most amazing experience I have ever experienced. I am so proud of my wife and we are both so happy and grateful for all the love we have received,” Prince Harry said at the press conference, among other things.

This afternoon, His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex shared the news of the arrival of his and the Duchess’ first born child. Their son was born early morning on the 6th of May, 2019 and weighs 7lbs and 3oz. Their Royal Highnesses thank you for your support and kindness during this exceptionally joyful time in their lives as they welcome their baby boy.
Harry’s message about the name issue
The prince was also asked whether the couple had decided on a name. Harry answered:
“We’re still thinking of names. The child came a little later than expected so we had some extra time to think about it. So … yes … It’s the next thing. I think we’ll meet you (in the press, reds note) about probably two days as planned as a family to show you and so everyone can see the baby,” Harry said on Monday with a big smile.
Which in that case would mean that the new royal baby could make his first appearance to the world in the middle of this week!

Today is #earthday – an opportunity to learn about, celebrate and continue to safeguard our planet, our home. The above, Their Royal Highnesses in Rotorua, New Zealand. Of the 170 different species originally planted in the early 1900’s, only a handful of species, including these majestic Redwoods, remain today. Next, we invite you to scroll through a series of 8 photos taken by The Duke of Sussex©️DOS sharing his environmental POV including: Africa’s Unicorn, the rhino. These magnificent animals have survived ice ages and giant crocodiles, amongst other things! They have adapted to earth’s changing climate continually for over 30 million years. Yet here we are in 2019 where their biggest threat is us. A critical ecosystem, Botswana’s Okavango Delta sustains millions of people and an abundance of wildlife. Huge bush fires, predominantly started by humans, are altering the entire river system; the ash kills the fish as the flood comes in and the trees that don’t burn become next year’s kindling. Desert lions are critically endangered due partly to human wildlife conflict, habitat encroachment and climate change. 96% of mammals on our ? are either livestock or humans, meaning only 4% remaining are wild animals. Orca and Humpback whale populations are recovering in Norway thanks to the protection of their fisheries. Proof that fishing sustainably can benefit us all. Roughly 3/4 of Guyana is forested, its forests are highly diverse with 1,263 known species of wildlife and 6,409 species of plants. Many countries continue to try and deforest there for the global demand for timber. We all now know the damage plastics are causing to our oceans. Micro plastics are also ending up in our food source, creating not just environmental problems for our planet but medical problems for ourselves too. When a fenced area passes its carrying capacity for elephants, they start to encroach into farmland causing havoc for communities. Here @AfricanParksNetwork relocated 500 Elephants to another park within Malawi to reduce the pressure on human wildlife conflict and create more dispersed tourism. Every one of us can make a difference, not just today but every day. #earthday
Many speculations in the UK – here are the favorites
The name of Harry and Meghan’s firstborn has been under constant speculation since it was revealed that Meghan was pregnant. Before it was known whether the couple was expecting a prince or princess, there were many names high on the list. We have previously mentioned that names like Diana, Arthur, and Alice topped the lists.
Now that we know the couple had a boy, names like Arthur, Edward, James, Oliver, and Henry are mentioned in the speculation.
ITV reports on Tuesday that the names Alexander, James, and Arthur are top of the list right now.
Prince Harry is “over the moon”
Prince Harry explains that he is happy.
“As every father and parent would ever say, your baby is absolutely amazing, but this little thing is to die for.”
“I’m just over the moon,” Harry concludes.
Here you can see the emotional and historical press meeting in Windsor:
Please share further to congratulate the new parents!
