Kate Middleton and Prince William React to the Birth of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Baby

Uncle Prince William and Aunt Kate Middleton are “delighted” to welcome another little royal to the family!

Following the birth of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s first child on Monday, a baby boy, Harry’s older brother and his wife – who are parents themselves to Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, 1 – added their congratulations.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted with the news of the birth of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son today, and look forward to meeting the latest addition to the family,” Kensington Palace said in a statement.

Following the announcement that Meghan was expecting, the palace released a statement from William and Kate saying they were “delighted” for the newlyweds.

Shortly after Meghan’s pregnancy was announced, Kate shared her excitement about the news while chatting with the crowd gathered during a November visit to Leicester University.

When a fan asked the royal mom of three if she was excited about Prince Harry and Meghan’s baby on the way, Kate immediately responded: “Absolutely!”

“It’s such a special time to have little kiddies,” she shared. “And a cousin for George and Charlotte, as well, and Louis. It’ll be really special.”
