The Prince added that fans will get to see the newborn in two days, as he and Meghan are still thinking of a name for him.
As Radar has reported, the new baby is now seventh in the line of succession to the British throne. He will want for nothing, and will come home to Frogmore Cottage, a house on the grounds of Windsor Estate, featuring 10 bedrooms.
The royal home has recently undergone $3 million dollars in home renovations at the order of Meghan and include a gym and yoga studio.
According to historians, Frogmore Cottage is a “Grade II listed house in the grounds of Frogmore House, which was built in 1801 at the direction of Queen Charlotte! The cottage is built on the Frogmore Estate, itself part of Home Park, Windsor, In Berkshire.”
As for the newborn’s new digs, insiders say it’s all very modern.
“Don’t expect to see any baby pink or baby blue,” royals reporter Katie Nicholl previously revealed. “Apparently, it’s going to be a monochrome palette—whites and grays, I’m told, will be the color theme for baby Sussex’s nursery.”
The new parents asked for inspiration from a variety of friends and family. Even tennis great Serena Williams helped out, decorating the nursery with a full wall-length mood screen that electronically projects soothing images from a number of selection choices.
And tech nerd Prince Harry is finally getting a chance to try his hand at his own inventions, outfitting the nursery with top-of-the-line cameras, security windows, and a state-of-the-art stereo system.
Meghan’s demand for changes to accompany the newborn had many calling her a “diva” and a “momzilla.” Upgrades to Frogmore that the Duchess of Sussex has insisted upon include a celeb-style $50,000 panic room, paid for fully by British taxpayers.
Next up for the newborn, an official name, due to be given and revealed at an unknown hour.
