    Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, announced they were expecting their first child in October, five months after they wed in a star-studded ceremony at England’s Windsor Castle.

    Throughout Meghan's pregnancy, the couple never revealed the due date and said they decided not to find out the baby's sex in advance.

    The couple also did not pose with the newborn for a public photo call hours after the boy’s birth. Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, have posed for photos on hospital steps shortly after the birth of each of their three children. 

    The child is the seventh in line for the throne. He also is eligible for dual British-U.S. citizenship.
