As announced this morning, Meghan Markle went into labour, expecting her first child. According to many sources, the Duchess of Sussex gave birth to a baby boy just a few minutes ago.
Bucking tradition, no one knew for sure what the details were surrounding the birth. Meghan and Prince Harry are super non-traditional went it comes to former Royal couples. Details of the birth were kept under wraps to the media.
The new child is apparently seventh in line to the throne. The son apparently weighs 7lbs. 3oz, according to the Royal Family's Instagram page.
At the time of writing, Meghan Markle gave birth to a baby boy roughly 12 minutes ago. The couple said that they were super excited to announce the news of the baby's birth once they had a chance to celebrate privately.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's child and any future children aren't expected to rule the throne at any point because they are so far from the line of succession. Therefore, the couple is given a lot more wiggle room when it comes to Royal traditions.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got married last May 19th, 2018. Almost a year to the date, they gave birth to their first child just minutes ago.
His brother, William, is fifth in line to the throne, which makes Harry sixth in line. Their boy is seventh, therefore, he is unlikely to ascend to the throne. That is, unless, some Game of Thrones stuff goes down at some point in the future.
Speculations on the name of the child are Albert, Arthur, and James. Classical British names that are sure to impress the Queen mum.
The Queen has the final say on whether or not the child will officially become a prince.
The name of their child is sure to surprise everyone since the couple is super non-traditional.
Stay tuned for updates.
