The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have announced the arrival of a healthy baby boy

Prince Harry made the announcement on Tuesday as he stood outside Windsor Castle, beaming from ear to ear, telling the world details of his and Meghan Markle's first child.

After remaining tight-lipped on the baby's name, and revealing that the Duchess of Sussex and their son were both doing well, Harry thanked the media before turning to thank the horses that stood behind him as he made his announcement.

Social media errupted at the gesture, with many saying that the flustered Prince would be suffering through the newborn fog stage where you're walking on cloud nine and your brain isn't working quite as efficently as it should be.
