Prince George and Princess Charlotte arrive for the the wedding of Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank at St George's Chapel Windsor Castle near London England. The birth of a royal baby

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's child was born at 05:26 BST on Monday.

The parents themselves were of course bursting with happiness, with their own Instagram account announcing "It's a boy!" and confirming they were "overjoyed" with the news.

It was not clear whether the birth took place at the couple's home, Frogmore Cottage on the estate of Windsor Castle where they married in a lavish ceremony in May a year ago, or if Meghan had been rushed to a London hospital as a number of British newspapers reported.

Now that Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have welcomed their first child, questions are emerging about how the newest member of the Royal Family should be addressed, how he will be raised, and where he ranks in the hierarchy.

Not even senior members of the Royal Family were aware Meghan had given birth at plush Portland hospital, it is reported.

The actress then said it was now a guessing game as to what the baby will be named and who his nannies will be.

The junta that seized power in 2014 and has vowed to defend the monarchy is aiming to return to power through the ballot box. Thailand's monarchy is wrapped in ritual, protocol and hierarchy all orbiting around the king, who is viewed as a demigod.

Now that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are the parents of a baby boy everyone has so many questions about their little one. It's been the most wonderful experience I could ever have possibly imagined. "How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension". Meghan's cheeky suggestion for her own kid-friendly book, aptly titled The Glorious Adventures of Freckle Face Meg.

Buckingham Palace also said last month Prince Harry and Meghan wanted to keep the arrival of their first child "private".

Kate Middleton famously gave birth at the exclusive Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London to all three of her and William's children.

"Plenty of advice, plenty of advice, but no, I wish him all the best and I hope the next few days they can settle down and enjoy having a newborn in their family and the joys that come with that", he said. Harry said he and Meghan "are still thinking about names". That line changes for certain royals with every birth of a new baby and some of the rules have been tweaked over the past few years so that males no longer take precedence over their older sisters. It's been overdue so we have had a little bit of time to think about names so that's the next bit.

Alexander and Spencer have replaced Arthur as the new favourite names for Baby Sussex after a flurry of bets.

I haven't been at many births.
