The royal baby has officially arrived on May 5, and the world is bubbling with joy over the symbolic birth that bridges two countries together.

Meghan Markle went into labor on Sunday with Prince Harry by her side, and the Duchess was speculated to have been induced, according to Huffington Post.

The Duke and the Duchess welcomed their first child, a son, weighing 7 lbs and 3 ounces.

He was born a week past the expected due date.


Mother and child are doing well and are accompanied by the Duchess's mother, Doria Ragland, at Frogmore Cottage.

The royal couple had recently moved from their two-bedroom Nottingham Cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace, London, to the renovated cottage in Windsor just in time for the arrival of the baby.

Most of the Royal Family has been notified.


The Duke of Sussex is overjoyed. He told reporters he was "absolutely thrilled" and thanked everyone for their support during the pregnancy.

Prince Harry also said that both he and the Duchess are still thinking about the boy's name.




Plans for the arrival of the baby were planned in secrecy after the royal couple announced on October 15 that Markle was expecting.

Royal fans will see pictures of the newborn that will be taken on the grounds of Windsor Castle after the new family spends time celebrating privately.


The photo opp will be a break in royal tradition in contrast to when Prince William and his wife Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, posed with their newborn from the steps of the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital, Paddington.



The baby is one of the first ever biracial heirs in the British royal family.

PEOPLE noted that "Queen Charlotte in the 1800s was believed to be of mixed race and went on to have 15 children."

The Sussex's son is the seventh in the line of succession after Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis and Harry.

The boy will be known as the Earl of Dumbarton, the secondary Sussex title, as the eldest son who will eventually inherit the dukedom.





When asked about what he was feeling, Prince Harry told reporters:

"I haven't been at many births. This is definitely my first birth. It was amazing, absolutely incredible, and, as I said, I'm so incredibly proud of my wife."
"As every father and parent will ever say, you know, your baby is absolutely amazing, but this little thing is absolutely to-die-for, so I'm just over the moon."

We look forward to discovering the name of the new royal baby.

Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex!

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
