The Duchess of Sussex is known to be a vocal feminist and supporter of women’s rights, but she’s pointed out that her husband is, too. Last January, she reportedly told well-wishers in Wales that Harry “is a feminist too.” And on International Women’s Day this year, she said she hopes men are “part of the conversation” about gender equality, adding that her husband “certainly is.” She also noted that she hopes to raise her child as a feminist.
Duchess Meghan gave birth to her baby boy early this morning and Harry was “by her side,” according to a statement Buckingham Palace released today. In his interview, the Duke of Sussex said the birth was “the most amazing experience I could have ever possibly imagined.”
The new dad added, “We’re absolutely thrilled and so grateful for all the love and support from everybody out there.”
