“Tadu mai ki Vuravura na Ravouvou ni Bolatagane!”
The Prime Minister of Fiji Voreqe Bainimarama today congratulated the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the birth of the Royal Baby – a baby boy.
“Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the birth of your new baby boy. The Fijian people have been a part of your captivating journey into parenthood since the moment the Duchess first revealed her baby bump in Suva.”
“Today, we share in your joy and wish God’s blessings on your new family.”
“Please, join me in wishing the Duke and Duchess congrats from Fiji on the birth of their child!”
A beaming Prince Harry said they were “absolutely thrilled” and thanked the public for their support.
He said Meghan and the baby were doing “incredibly well”, adding that they were still thinking about names for the infant, who was delivered at 05:26 BST.
Buckingham Palace said the baby weighed 7lbs 3oz (3.2kg), and that the duke was present for the birth.
The baby boy is seventh in line to the throne, behind the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge and his children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – and Prince Harry.
Speaking after the birth, Harry said the child had been “a little overdue” and that he planned to make another announcement in two days’ time “so everyone can see the baby”.
