Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their first baby on Monday morning, and people from all over were excited to celebrate the arrival of the newest royal baby.

The couple announced that they had a baby boy via their official Instagram account on Monday, and people were gathered around Windsor Castle to celebrate the exciting news.

A unofficial town crier announced the birth with a scroll and ringing of a bell.

Crowds lined the streets of Windsor with festive balloons and celebratory decorations.

The excited public spread joy with “welcome baby” balloons and Union Jack flags.

Members of the media also gathered on the castle’s grounds to report the news. Harry confirmed in a short statement that he and Markle are planning on doing a photo call with the baby in two days’ time on Wednesday.

London’s BT Tower marked the occasion by displaying the words, “it’s a baby boy,” as seen here in a photo shared by Royal Central.

However, perhaps nobody was more excited about the royal baby’s arrival than his father, Prince Harry, who couldn’t stop smiling as he talked about his “very healthy boy.”
