Los Angelinos celebrate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first royal baby

The first child, a boy, of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex was born in the early hours of Monday morning.

"Following a flurry of bets last evening, Alexander is now the new favorite at the top of our name betting and the one we are fearing the most", said John Hill of the Coral betting agency.

Kate revealed they do not know the royal baby's name yet.

Prince George, 5, is the eldest child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and the great-grandson of Queen Elizabeth II.

Meghan's mother Doria Ragland is with her daughter at the royal couple's new Frogmore Cottage residence on the grounds of Windsor Castle west of London.

"The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family".

Prince Harry soon stepped out to address the media and said that he was "over the moon" as he assured fans and followers of the royal family that both the mother and baby were healthy and doing fine.

With Meghan's focus on empowering women and Harry's devotion to raising awareness of mental health issues, the duke and duchess are already being billed as progressive parents. It's been the most awesome experience I could ever have possibly imagined.

Harry and Meghan married at Windsor Castle a year ago this month.

Prince Harry remained tight-lipped about potential names for Baby Sussex during his TV announcement Monday.

Speaking on Tuesday afternoon, Prince William shared his delight at the news of the birth. "People are obsessed over the appearance and racial identity of the new royal baby. but the presence of these mixed-race symbols in positions of power doesn't automatically translate into more power for people of colour". A source told Page Six that Priyanka was "crushed", which is why she skipped Meghan's baby shower in NY.

Betting odds for the names could change in the days leading up to the announcement. I'm so incredibly proud of my wife.

The couple plan to announce the name and introduce their baby boy to the world "in probably two days time". In March this year, Priyanka laughed off rumours of a feud, saying on an worldwide chat show, "Oh my God, no it's not true", reports Elle.

Punters are betting on Philip and James as the most likely, followed by Edward.
