Prince Harry Was Left Mind Blown By Women’s Strength After the Birth of His Son

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle might have opted out of the traditional post-birth photocall following the arrival of their son this morning, but the Duke of Sussex still made a point to address the media and public about the happiest day of their lives.

“I’m very excited to announce that Meghan and myself had a baby boy early this morning,” Prince Harry shared with press outside of the couple’s Windsor Estate home, Frogmore Cottage, this afternoon. “Mother and baby are doing incredibly well,” he added, not shying away from the sheer excitement painted across his face.

The overall birth experience left the Duke of Sussex in a little bit a visible shock and awe over what he witnessed, which led to a quick rant from the self-proclaimed feminist.

Following his announcement, the elated new father went on to express what an incredible moment it was for him personally. “It’s been the most amazing experience I could ever possibly imagine,” he said with a laugh and sprinkle of disbelief before discussing his amazement of women. “How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension,” he remarked while miming an explosion of his brain.

“I haven’t been in many births — this is definitely my first birth,” he continued. “It was amazing. Absolutely incredible. And, as I said, I am so incredibly proud of my wife and as every father and parent would ever say your baby is absolutely amazing. But this little thing is absolutely to die for so I’m just over the moon.”

Where did Meghan Markle have her baby?

Judging by Prince Harry’s whereabouts during his afternoon announcement and Buckingham Palace’s statement, which revealed the Duchess of Sussex’s mother, Doria Ragland was “with Their Royal Highnesses at Frogmore Cottage” in the early afternoon, some believe Meghan Markle might have had a home birth at Frogmore Cottage.

In the months leading up to the royal baby’s arrival, many speculated that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were planning for a home birth. Some initial reports claimed it had something to do with Meghan Markle wanting a completely different birth experience from her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton. However, others suggest it likely had more to do with personal preference and privacy.

Unlike most modern royal births, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex didn’t want to cause a scene during labor or make their way through flashing cameras following a hospital birth. A home birth at Frogmore Cottage allowed the two new parents to conceal their labor and delivery plans and offered a bit of privacy in the early hours as a new family.  

When will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle introduce Baby Sussex to the public?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle might be soaking in these moments of alone time, but they know the public — and the press — is dying to meet their new little one. To comply with royal tradition, the two plan to introduce Baby Sussex via an official photocall later this week. “For us, I think we will be seeing you guys in probably two days time as planned as a family to be able to share it with you guys and so everyone can see the baby,” Prince Harry confirmed with a big, first-time dad smile.
