The Duchess of Sussex has safely given birth to a boy and the Duke of Sussex was present at the time of birth, the Buckingham Palace said in a statement on Monday.

For his part, Prince Harry confirmed the press reports that said: "It was amazing.  I am very proud of my wife, it was the most amazing experience I can imagine. "

In their account on Instagram, the couple announced the gender of the baby with a text that says "It's a boy!", Pointing out that the baby weighs 3.3 kilograms, and that he and the Duchess are okay.

This is the first child of Harry and Meghan, after their marriage last year, the seventh in the order to the British throne, and the eighth grandson of Queen Elizabeth II. The world media spotlighted that this could be the first child to become the king of Britain and president of the United States at the same time. the British newspaper Daily Mail said the new royal baby may be an exception in the British royal family.

The son of Harry and Meghan has automatic British citizenship because of his father's nationality, and he is seventh in the throne, the son of Britain's eighth grandchild Elizabeth II.

The new royal baby, whose father and mother have not yet chosen a name, can also hold US citizenship as his mother Meghan Markle did not voluntarily renounce her US citizenship because this was not required under British law, which also makes the child a US citizen. But what could make Prince Harry and Megan Markle not currently seeking a child of US citizenship would be that Harry and Megan would be trapped in the US tax system, which requires all US citizens to report income from all sources of income both inside and outside the United States.
