Meghan Markle and Prince Harry reach out to Princess Eugenie after birth of son
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have sent their congratulations to Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank following the birth of their first child, it has been reported.
Eugenie and Jack welcomed their first child, a son, on February 9 2021, at Portland Hospital in Central London.
A statement from Buckingham Palace said the baby, whose name has not been confirmed, weighed 8lbs 1oz.
The Queen was "delighted" at the news of the birth of her ninth great-grandchild and Eugenie's cousin, Prince Harry, has also reportedly sent his well-wishes.
According to Hello!, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have privately congratulated the new parents from their California home.
Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, were also among Royal Family members to send their congratulations.
Harry and Eugenie are reportedly extremely close, with insiders claiming the pair are the "closest of friends".
The pair developed a "natural connection" as children as Princess Diana and Eugenie’s mum, Sarah Ferguson, were good friends.
As teens, the pair were regulars at popular London club, Mahiki, and would sneak in the back entrance on the London club scene.
It is believed Eugenie was one of the first members of the family to know when Harry and Meghan began dating in 2016.
Just five months after Harry wed Meghan at St George's Chapel in October 2018, Eugenie and Jack also tied the knot at the venue.
