    A proud and beaming Prince Harry couldn't contain his joy over his new status, having revealed to the public that their son is "healthy and absolutely to die for", and that he is "just over the moon".

    "Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. It's been the most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined. How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension.
 We're both absolutely thrilled and so grateful to all the love and support from everybody out there", the newly-minted dad said.

    Priyanka and Meghan have been friends since 2016, with the Duchess Of Sussex previously saying that they had met at an event organised by Elle magazine in the US, and it turned out that the Quantico star was a big fan of Suits, where Markle played one of the leading roles.
