LONDON (AP) — The Latest on the newest royal baby in Britain (all times local):

2:45 p.m.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, are the proud parents of a new baby boy.

The baby, who has not yet been named, is seventh in line for the British throne and is Queen Elizabeth II’s eighth great-grandchild.

It is the first child for Harry and Meghan, who married a year ago. Harry spoke before cameras on Monday afternoon.

The duchess is a 37-year-old retired American actress formerly known as Meghan Markle. The 34-year-old prince is the son of Prince Charles — next in line for the throne — and Princess Diana, who died in a Paris car crash in 1997.

Harry has long spoken of his desire to start a family.

Prince Harry’s wife Meghan went into labor early Monday with their first child, Buckingham Palace said.

Palace officials didn’t immediately say where Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, is giving birth. She was formerly known as Meghan Markle and was a TV star before retiring from acting to marry Harry.

Officials said the prince was by Meghan’s side. No other details were released.

The couple has said they didn’t find out the baby’s sex in advance.

The infant will be seventh in line to the British throne and Queen Elizabeth II’s eighth great-grandchild. Harry is the younger son of Prince Charles, the next in line to the throne, and the late Princess Diana, who died in a Paris car crash in 1997.

The child will be eligible for dual British-U.S. citizenship if Meghan and Harry want to go through the application process.

Harry and Meghan married at St. George’s Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle a year ago this month. In April, they moved from a house on the London grounds of Kensington Palace to Frogmore Cottage, which is near Windsor Castle, where they held their gala, VIP-studded wedding reception.

Journalists and well-wishers have camped out for days in Windsor, about 35 kilometers (22 miles) west of London, awaiting the baby’s arrival. Kensington Palace has said the new parents don’t plan to pose for a photograph or appear in public with their baby for several days so they can celebrate privately.

Meghan, a California native, had a starring role on the American TV series “Suits.” She had a previous marriage that ended in divorce and has strong feminist views. As the daughter of a black mother and a white father, she says she identifies as biracial.

Harry, who has said he wanted to protect his wife from intrusive media coverage, and Meghan have said they plan to keep many of the details of the birth private.

    That family is ugly – starting with Elizabeth, Charles and Diana. The racist white media keeps drilling that they are handsome, stylish, and beautiful. After awhile, you start to think they look alright. It’s utterly ridiculous how you can look at these ugly kids/people and call them cute. Kind of like the Trumps.’ Buck teeth, monster faces, crazy skin and horrible bodies. This might be the cutest supposed “royal” of them all. Meghan will definitely improve that gene pool.

      @Ted…LMAO! I agree with you on that one she will definitely improve the Frankenstein gene pool.

    That baby is by no means black or of color. His mother is biracial mostly white and his father is white. He’ll be groomed and raised white and will marry white. Even though the royals are cringing at the thought of a drop of negroid blood in their family bloodline, I’m sure Meghan will do her best to veer him as white as possible.

      Megans dominate genes are African . Before claim what color someone child will be . You should get a DNA test . I bet you are a mixture of cultures like everyone on this planet. No one alive is one culture . Remember before colonization Europe,The Middle East , Israel , India and much more where part of Africa. Africans before colonization lived everywhere in the world.
