    i’m trying to understand what the speculation about “was by Her side” is. it just means that they were together when she went into labor? what is the speculation about?

    This was really great news. I was starting to get worried, but thanks be to God for Baby Sussexes’ arrival. Congratulations to the new parents. Can’t wait for the pictures and yes I am already thinking about what Meghan will wear!

    So, so happy for Harry and Meghan. What an exciting day!

    As much as it’s kind of fun to have a big Lindo Wing moment, I actually kind of loved the way that Meghan and Harry chose to announce and present the birth. There was something so personal and intimate about today, to the point that it almost felt less “private” than the births of the Cambridge children. Harry’s statement in particular was so raw and genuine that it nearly brought me to tears. I can’t wait for photos and a name in the next few days!

    For those of us old enough to remember Harry walking behind his mother’s coffin, with his head down, there will always be a soft spot in our hearts for this brave boy, who grew to be a remarkable man. When he met Meghan his life seemed to take a turn towards true happiness. Now with the birth of their son, he and Meghan are truly a family.
    How wonderful that Harry and Meghan have finally become parents. They both seem to be so drawn to children. May they all live happily ever after.

    Hip, Hip Hooray for Meghan and Harry and welcome to Baby Sussex!

    Harry’s live announcement to the reporters was so very personal and truly warmed my heart. He was eloquent yet “still on cloud nine” and a tad giddy! Love the whole bit and appreciative of his praise for Meghan, delight and awe at becoming a father and his thanks to everyone for their love and support.

    Sartorially speaking, Harry looked fresh and ultra handsome in that lovely white shirt and sweater that seems to be N. Peal’s Carnaby Half-zip he wore upon arrival in Australia on October 15, 2018. If it is, well done…wonderful memory for all of us who first heard about Meghan’s pregnancy at that time.

    All the best to Meghan, Harry and Baby!
