Here are 5 things you should know about Baby Sussex…
Time: Baby Sussex was born Monday, May 6 at exactly 5:26 a.m. London time which is currently the same as Nigerian time. According to CNN weather, the baby was born exactly one minute after sunrise!
Where: It was reported that Meghan and Prince Harry initially wanted the home birthing option. However, with the birth of Baby Sussex, Buckingham Palace has revealed that the location of the Duchess’ delivery is “private.”
Weight: The “bouncing baby boy” like Nigerians are wont to say, weighed 7 lbs 3 oz. That’s an estimated 3.3kg. Now, in my opinion, that’s a big baby!
What Prince Harry has to say: For Prince Harry, this is his first birth experience and he is simply wowed! I mean, which father wouldn’t be after watching his wife go through the experience.
