Prince Harry said the birth was the "most incredible experience" and is "incredibly proud" of his wife.

William celebrated the latest addition to the royal family with the quip, and also said he was "absolutely thrilled" about the birth of Harry and Meghan's first child.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's child was born at 05:26 BST on Monday.

Meanwhile, royal enthusiasts have been seen gathering in Windsor as news of the birth spread.

Meghan, who grew up in California and is a long-time advocate of holistic treatments, has reportedly raised eyebrows during her pregnancy with some of her new-age ideas and USA glitz.

Meghan, a 37-year-old TV star with partial African American ancestry, has created a fresh buzz around the royal family.

"It's been the most awesome experience I can ever possibly imagine".

The boy, who has yet to be named, arrived early on Monday and is thought to have been born at Harry and Meghan's Frogmore Cottage home near Windsor Castle.

"How any woman can do what they do is beyond comprehension", he said.

"We're looking forward to meeting him and finding out what his name is going to be". As the Queen prepares to meet her eighth great grandchild, the public is particularly anxious to see the first pictures of the new family. "Most mothers call the shots and I think the days of royal children being whisked away to royal nurseries and "nanny knowing best" is long gone", said Junor.

Among the well-wishers were cast members of hit U.S. legal drama, Suits, who tweeted their congratulations to Markle, who previously played the sassy paralegal-turned-lawyer Rachel Zane in the series before she Wednesday Harry and became the Duchess of Sussex.

Princess Charlotte, 4, is the middle child and second eldest of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

"As every father and parent will ever say, your baby is absolutely fantastic, but this little thing is absolutely to-die-for", he added. "We're both absolutely thrilled and so grateful to all the love and support from everybody out there", the newly-minted dad said.

"Theirs is a real-life fable in which people of all backgrounds and colours can find echoes of their own lives, their childhood fantasies and dreams, all the while sharing Prince Harry's timeless wonder at witnessing a birth".

She was then asked "How many of them have you got now?' before replying 'Eight".

For her first official appearance post-baby, Meghan Markle might choose to hide her postpartum belly for the sake of avoiding questions like "why does Meghan Markle still look pregnant?"
