The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have given birth to their first child together, a boy.

This little boy becomes the first multiracial baby in the British monarchy’s recent history. He is also 7th in line to the British throne, behind his father Prince Harry. 

The new baby was born at 5:26 a.m., weighing 7 pounds, 3 ounces. A name has not yet been chosen. 

Britain is 87 percent white, but multiracial children make up its fastest-growing ethnic category, and will soon be the country’s largest minority group. After the entry of Meghan Markle, the first multiracial woman in the Royal Family, being that her mother is black, people immediately began to anticipate the birth of the couple’s first child.
