He’s here! Harry and Meghan announce royal baby’s arrival

Prince Harry has announced he and wife Meghan Markle are “absolutely thrilled” following the arrival of their first child.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed a baby boy at 5.26am (local time), weighing a healthy 3.2 kilograms.

Prince Harry has described his baby as “absolutely to die for,” and said the birth was an “amazing experience”.

The couple is yet to decide on a name for their son, who is now seventh in line to the British throne.

(Note: The bookmakers predicted a girl!)

  • Alexander $4.80
  • James $5.20
  • Arthur $6
  • Spencer $9.20
  • Philip $10.20

Alan Jones has come up with one name that’s not on the bookies’ list.

He’s predicting Kobe, with Meghan Markle a huge fan of basketballer Kobe Bryant.

UK correspondent Adam Gilchrist isn’t so sure.

“I can’t see them quite going the whole hog. It’s going to be the usual suspects isn’t it.”
