Royal baby: World pour congratulations for Meghan and Harry

CONGRATULATION  have poured in from around the world following the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's son.

The newborn was delivered at 05:26 BST on Monday, with Prince Harry saying the baby boy was "absolutely to die for".

The Palace said the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales were all "delighted with the news".

Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, was said to be "overjoyed", while former US First Lady Michelle Obama said she and Barack were "thrilled".

Prime Minister Theresa May, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon were among the politicians to offer their congratulations to the royal couple on Twitter.
