Meghan added: "He's just been the dream so it's been a special couple of days."

The American former actress gave birth to the overdue 7lb 3oz boy on Monday at 5.26am.

The baby, whose name has not yet been announced, is seventh in line to the throne and the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh's eighth great-grandchild and the Prince of Wales's fourth grandchild.

Amid surroundings steeped in royal history, the latest royalbaby made his debut behind closed doors, with a small press pool of only one reporter, one photographer, three cameramen, as well as the couple's own private photographer and a household press officer photographer.
