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!

In the midst of our shopping, we've all seen those warning labels on product packaging that leave us absolutely rolling our eyes. Who could possibly need to be warned about that?

But since the warning exists, we have to assume that someone made that mistake at some point.

There's the added fun of unnecessary products that no one should believe would work.

But just like the directions, there seems to be a marketable need for every product and direction.

People Share The Most Unsettling Facts About Themselves

CW: suicide.

Most people can be very guarded because of their vulnerabilities, even if you think you know them really well.

These disconcerting memories or character traits are better left undisclosed, for they can be painful for individuals to revisit or acknowledge.

On the other hand, opening up about these disturbing facts can also be therapeutic as long as they are revealed anonymously.

We never leave two movies feeling the same way.

In some cases, we are so moved by what we just saw, that we are sobbing so loudly, we're getting concerned looks from our fellow moviegoers.

In other cases, we waste no time in leaving, as we have just spent two hours or so of our lives we'll never get back again watching something which could have been made by second graders.

And then, there are the times when we leave the theatre, and all we can think is, "what the f*ck?"

Not necessarily because it was bad, but because we can't process exactly what we just saw.

It could be something we can appreciate more over time, with repeat viewings... how many views did it take you to fully understand Inception? Be honest!

Or, we are befuddled beyond words as to how such an inane, amateurish creation ever saw the light of day.

Franklin D. Roosevelt once famously said, "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself."

Words of encouragement to all Americans during his inaugural address, as America was in the midst of the great depression, with countless people having lost their jobs, their homes, and even their will to live.

While America did, indeed, bounce back, it hasn't stopped people from constantly living in fear.

Sadly, we're not talking about unfounded fears, such as ghosts or superstitions.

Unfortunately, there is plenty to be afraid of in this world, and horrifying evidence to prove it.
