Whilst Harry told the small group of press he had only 2 hours sleep, a beaming Prince looked utterly overjoyed with excitement before praising his wife, Meghan Markle, who gave birth at 5.26 am England time:  “How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension, but we’re both absolutely thrilled and so grateful to all the love and support from everybody out there. It’s been amazing, so we just wanted to share this with everybody.

“I haven’t been at many births. This is definitely my first birth – it was amazing, absolutely incredible. I’m so incredibly proud of my wife. And as every father and parent would say, your baby is absolutely amazing. But this little thing is absolutely to-die-for so I’m absolutely over the moon.”
