Kate Middleton and Prince William Finally Issue Statement on Royal Baby

by at .

We're still waiting to learn what Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have named their child.

But we no longer need to wait to see what Kate Middleton and Prince William have to say about the seventh person in line for the British throne.

Kate Middleton Cracks Up

Early on May 6, as you may have read about by now, Markle gave birth to her very first baby.

It's a boy and he weighed in at seven pounds three ounces and everyone is happy and healthy.

"We are pleased to announce that Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their firstborn child in the early morning on May 6th, 2019.

"Their Royal Highnesses’ son weighs 7lbs. 3oz," read a statement on the official Royal Sussex Instagram page a few hours after the blessed event.

No further details were released at the time.

Meghan Markle: So Preggers!

But while Prince Harry himself has spoken out on being a father and even Markle's evil dad has said a few words, observers have been wondering when we'll hear from William and Kate.

Might they remain silent?

Might they use this opportunity to hammer the final nail in the coffin of their relationship with Meghan and Harry, following all those rumors of a rivalry between the foursome?

No, as it turns out.

“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,” stated a message posted to Kensington Palace’s Instagram account late on Monday.

It's about time, right?!?

We mostly say that in jest, although talk of a feud between Middleton and Markle, and also between William and Harry, has been going in for months now.

There's even been (hilarious) talk that Middleton wants to get pregnant again now because she's jealous of all the attention being paid to Markle.

Harry, meanwhile, told reporters off camera yesterday that he's had "about two hours sleep" since his son was born.

That sounds about right.

And it may scarcely improve over the next sevderal weeks.

But still. Parenthood is worth it, right? It does sound that way already.

“Meghan and myself had a baby boy early this morning - a very healthy boy,” the Duke of Sussex told the media after everything calmed down a little bit on Monday, adding:

"Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. This has been the most amazing experience I could possibly imagine. How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension.

"But we are both absolutely thrilled and so grateful for all the love and support from everyone out there. It’s been amazing."

And he concluded:

“I haven’t been in many births. This is definitely my first birth. It was amazing, absolutely incredible.

"As I said, I am so incredibly proud of my wife and as every father and parent would ever say, your baby is absolutely amazing, but this little thing is absolutely to die for, so I’m just over the moon."

Markle has not said anything directly just yet.

She has chosen NOT to pose with the baby outside the hospital just hours after giving birth, somewhat bucking a Royal tradition carried out last April by Middleton with little Prince Louis.

But we definitely do not blame her one bit for taking this approach.

Let the woman rest for awhile, will ya?!?

For his part, Meghan's father tried not to sound bitter that he was left out of the baby announcement.

The dude has been trashing his daughter for about a year now, but was at least able to muster up the following nice words in the wake of this life-altering development:

I’m delighted to hear that mother and child are doing well.

I am proud that my new grandson is born into the British royal family. I am sure that he will grow up to serve the crown and the people of Britain.

God bless the child. And I wish him health and happiness. And. My congratulations to my lovely daughter Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry.

God save the Queen.
