At times, media coverage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's relationship has been unfair, mean, and even downright racist. The couple has hinted that inflammatory media coverage is part of the reason why they're stepping down as senior royals. But just because they're removing themselves from the family doesn't mean the pounding in the press is going away anytime soon. Prince Harry just called out the Times of London for publishing a "potentially harmful" story about "Megxit." This is why we can't have nice things.
The new prince is fifth in the line of succession to the throne.
On Monday, April 23, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, gave birth to a son, weighing 8 pounds, 7 ounces.
The announcement was posted on the official Kensington Palace Twitter account, which noted that Prince William was on-site for the birth of the couple's third child. The new baby will join siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who are 4 and 2 years old, respectively.
As is tradition, a birth notice was posted in the court in front of the palace, where it'll stay for 24 hours before being sent to the Privy Council Office for official recording.

If anyone grasps the importance of mental health, it's the royal family.
Princes Harry and William, as well as Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, have made it their mission to bring the critical issue to the public's attention.
In 2016, they teamed up with mental health charity Heads Together and released a public service announcement about why it's so important to discuss mental health. Since then, they've made a number of public appearances in support of the cause. Harry opened up about his own mental health struggles, and the brothers filmed themselves talking about what it was like losing their mother at such a young age. They even got together with Lady Gaga to help raise awareness.
"[Mental health] matters just as much as our physical health," Prince William said at a recent event in London.
"There are times when, whoever we are, it is hard to cope with challenges — and when that happens, being open and honest and asking for help is life-changing."
