The whole world was counting down the days to when Meghan Markle and Prince Harry would welcome their first royal baby boy — including Princess Charlotte and Prince George! Kate Middleton and Prince William‘s two royal kiddos have been patiently awaiting the arrival of their little cousin, and a source recently dished that they are over the moon about meeting him for the first time.
“George and Charlotte have seen photos of their cousin, which Harry sent to William, but they can’t wait to meet him in person,” a source close to the royal family exclusively dishes to Closer Weekly. “Charlotte, in particular, adores babies and keeps asking Kate if she can hold him.” Aww!
Baby Sussex became the cousin to George, 5, and Charlotte, 4 — who are also the siblings to their younger brother, 1-year-old Prince Louis — when he came into this world on Monday, May 6. Meg, 37, and Harry, 34, announced the exciting news of their first child’s birth in a sweet message shared to their social media accounts.
“We are pleased to announce that Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their firstborn child in the early morning on May 6th, 2019. Their Royal Highnesses’ son weighs 7lbs. 3oz,” the post reads. “The Duchess and baby are both healthy and well, and the couple thank members of the public for their shared excitement and support during this very special time in their lives. More details will be shared in the forthcoming days.”
Although Kate, 37, and William, 36, have been known to take pictures outside the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital with their newborn on the day of the birth, the former Suits actress and her royal beau — who have yet to reveal their baby son’s name — chose to wait two days before releasing any pictures of the little bundle of joy.
While making their first appearance as a family-of-three, Meg couldn’t help but gush about what it has been like to step into the role of mom for the first time. “It’s magic, it’s pretty amazing,” the brunette beauty admitted in her first interview since she gave birth earlier this week on Wednesday, May 8. “I mean, I have the two best guys in the world so I’m really happy.”
Motherhood looks so good on Meghan!
