Harry and Meghan announced on Instagram that their firstborn child was born “in the early morning” on Monday. “Their Royal Highnesses’ son weighs 7lbs. 3oz,” the statement continued. “The duchess and baby are both healthy and well, and the couple thank members of the public for their shared excitement and support during this very special time in their lives.”

Before Meghan gave birth, William and Kate shared with her and Harry the wisdom that they’ve gleaned from raising their three kids: Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 12 months.

“Both of them have spoken to Harry and Meghan about parenting, giving a few bits of advice ahead of the arrival of their baby,” a palace insider told Us in January 2019. “Having been through it a few times, their ‘tricks of the trade’ have definitely been appreciated. Harry and Meghan are totally open to all help and advice!”
