Baby Sussex will follow his father Prince Harry in the order of succession, making him the 7th in line to the British throne.
He will also be Queen’s 8th great grandchild.
We wait to find out what he will be called and if he is given a title, however we do know he will not be required to have a surname.
Royal Babies from the Past
The Queen’s birthplace a house in Mayfair, is now a Michelin star restaurant.
Home secretaries used to attend all royal births.
This custom was brought to an end in 1948 prior to the birth of Prince Charles. He became the first heir to the throne to not have his birth officially witnessed.
Royal births are usually celebrated with a 41-gun salute by the King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery. The ceremony takes place in Hyde Park in London.
Prince William however was the first heir to the British throne who was born in a hospital and not a private residence.
