Prince Harry looked like the proudest dad in the world as he told the world his wife Meghan Markle had given birth to a baby boy.
He described the birth "the most amazing experience he could ever have possibly imagined" and praised Meghan and other mums everywhere.
The sweet moment couldn't have been more different from the first comment his dad Prince Charles reportedly made after he was born.
Despite their troubled relationship, Princess Diana claimed she was "very, very close" to Prince Charles in the six weeks before their second child Harry was born.
But as soon as the little prince, who was at the time fourth in line to the throne, arrived things changed dramatically.

Speaking before her tragic death, Diana revealed the first comment Charles made about his second son made her "close off".
During an interview in 1991, published in a book by Andrew Morton years later, she said: "Then suddenly as Harry was born it just went bang, our marriage, the whole thing went down the drain.
Diana claims to reveal the first words out of her husband's mouth were "oh God, it's a boy", followed by: "and he's even got red hair".
She said: "Something inside me closed off."
Harry would have been around the age of seven at the time of Diana interviews. She said of the young prince: "Harry was a complete joy and is actually closer to his father than perhaps William at the moment."
She also admitted that she hid Harry's gender from Charles because she knew how much he wanted a little girl.
She said: "I knew Harry was going to be a boy because I saw on the scan. Charles always wanted a girl.
"He wanted two children and he wanted a girl. I knew Harry was a boy and I didn't tell him.
"Harry arrived, Harry had red hair, Harry was a boy."
Diana didn't stop there. She claimed that Charles took his discontent over not having a boy to her own mother at Harry's christening.
She said: "[Prince] Charles went to talk to my mother at Harry's christening and said: 'We were so disappointed – we thought it would be a girl.'
Frances Kydd, who divorced from Diana's father Viscount John Spencer in 1969, reportedly wasn't best pleased with his comment.
"Mummy snapped his head off, saying: 'You should realise how lucky you are to have a child that's normal.'
"Ever since that day the shutters have come down and that's what he does when he gets somebody answering back at him."
Andrew Morton, unable to go to the palace to interview Diana in person, conducted 'by proxy' interviews instead.
He enlisted the help of mutual friend James Colthurst to present questions to the princess and recorded her answers on secret tapes.
It is widely thought Diana wanted to get her own story out before she was solely blamed for the divorce.
According to the book, Charles and his wife had been in "total darkness" between the births of William and Harry and she had blotted it out as it was "such pain".
Diana said: "However, Harry appeared by a miracle."
