Kate Middleton and Prince William React to the Royal Baby’s Arrival

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are among the royal family members who’ve responded to the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son this morning. In a joint statement with other relatives—including the queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, and others―the couple said they “have been informed and are delighted with the news.”

Harry and Meghan’s son, who still remains nameless, is seventh in line for the throne, following Charles, William, William’s three children (Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis), and Harry.

The Cambridges had similar kind words for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after they first announced Meghan’s pregnancy in October. In a joint statement with other members of the royal family, they said they were “delighted” for the first-time parents. They even reportedly congratulated the pair at Princess Eugenie’s wedding, which took place just days before Harry and Meghan publicly announced they’re expecting.

A month later, Duchess Kate also commented on the pregnancy during an appearance in Leicester. “It’s such a special time to have little kiddies,” she told a fan. “And now a cousin for George, Charlotte and Louis as well! It’ll be really special,” she added, mentioning her three kids with Prince William.

About a year ago, William and Kate were at the center of royal baby madness as they welcomed their third child, Prince Louis, on April 23. Unlike the Sussexes, who’ve kept the birth of their child private, William and Kate posed for photos outside of the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital hours after she gave birth. Older siblings George, now five years old, and Charlotte, who’s three, also made an appearance outside of the maternity ward.

We’re patiently waiting for adorable photos of the Cambridge children bonding with their new baby cousin.
