Ellen DeGeneres, for her part, used humor to celebrate. “The #royalbaby is here! Congratulations, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry,” the talk show host, 61, tweeted. “The baby is 7th in line for the throne, which is crazy, because right now I’m 7th in line for the key-making kiosk at my grocery store. @RoyalFamily.”

While Harry joined several stars in gushing over the baby’s birth, the Los Angeles native’s ex-husband, Trevor Engelson, had a different reaction to the arrival. “Trevor doesn’t really think about Meghan, as he’s in a very happy relationship and about to be married,” a source told Us Weekly exclusively. “He will not be reaching out to congratulate them, as Meghan and Trevor no longer speak.”

Meghan and Engelson, 42, tied the knot in September 2011, but divorced less than two years later, citing irreconcilable differences.
