As expected, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle (The Duke and Duchess of Sussex) introduced their royal baby to the world on Wednesday, May 8, 2019. The royal baby was born on May 6, 2019, at 5:26 a.m. BST and weighed 7 pounds and 3 ounces. Baby Sussex is a groundbreaker indeed. As Meghan Markle is biracial, the royal baby is the first mixed-race baby in the monarchy! Many across Britain, as well as the world, hope the baby will help bridge racial divisions.
Additionally, Meghan Markle is an American citizen and so too is the royal baby. Prince Harry’s love for Meghan Markle an American citizen has brought the two nations together in a way never before. There is an American who has become part of the royal family and the royal baby holds dual citizenship.
Prince Harry’s and Meghan Markle’s son could run for the U.S. presidency as well as being seventh in line to England’s throne.
Though the child’s name has not been revealed, his formal surname will be Mountbatten-Windsor. Queen Elizabeth can choose whether or not the baby will go by the title “Prince” or not.
