I wrote about the verb tense in my previous post about Meghan Markle going into labour. That didn’t take long – it’s been confirmed that House Sussex has produced a male heir.
Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex was safely delivered of a son at 0526hrs.— The Royal Family (@RoyalFamily) May 6, 2019
The baby weighs 7lbs 3oz and The Duke of Sussex was present for the birth.

Quick, non? Probably because she’d already delivered when they announced she went into labour. Of course Prince Harry and Meghan also let us know on Instagram:
I f-cking love this. It’s so “not the way they do it”, but it is totally the way the Sussexes do it – with exclamation points! Also lovely that Doria Ragland has been included with a line of her own in the official statement. That she’s with Harry and Meghan at Frogmore Cottage may suggest that it was indeed a home birth.
Here’s Harry giving a brief statement – he looks exhausted, understandably, but also exhilarated:
Prince Harry says wife Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, and baby boy are doing "incredibly well." He added, "It has been the most amazing experience I could ever possibly imagine. " https://t.co/aAwPRaA2CB pic.twitter.com/YQCwa2ytUo— CBS News (@CBSNews) May 6, 2019
He uses the expression “over the moon”. And my first thought about that is Dlisted’s Michael K who, for years, has been dedicating posts to “over the moon” AND is Prince Harry’s #1 fan/stalker/fantasy lover. It’s almost like Harry was sending Michael a message.
More on Baby Sussex to come.
