6:41 am
side along with her mother who has been here for quite some time awaiting the arrival of baby boy sussex and we have certainly so many people gathering to hear the word. i heard laughter as the news broke that they had indeed given birth to a baby boy. we're hoping to get more information about the name. we know that he will be seventh in line to the throne. and certainly this is a historic moment for the crown because this is the first american/british bi-racial royal ever to be born here in great britain. certainly a lot to celebrate as people are starting to hear the word on the streets in windsor. so much excitement and finally, george, the wait is over. >> and you get to come home. first, will is on the streets of windsor. hey, will. >> reporter: hey, george, how are you doing? it is a boy. everyone assembled around me is excited.
6:42 am
it is a bank holiday so the streets that are normally pretty sleepy perked up because of the holiday and even more when they heard the news. over my shoulder we think the boy being born. i was joking with amy as we staked out this royal birth all week that it would be a boy. i'm glad to have been proven right. i want to know if the prediction of it being named william comes to pass. i'm getting shaking heads in this crowd around me. everyone very excited. it's a happy day in windsor. >> it is a happy day. harry is speaking right now. >> this is my first birth, but it was amazing. absolutely incredible. i'm so incredibly proud of my wife. as every father and parent would ever say, your baby is absolutely amazing. this little thing is absolutely to die for. i'm over the moon. thank you very much. >> prince harry. >> that was prince harry right

6:44 am
announcement, baby boy sussex has been born. there you see it there, amy. >> reporter: yes. so exciting. we're learning a few more details. baby sussex was born at 5:26 this morning here, so the couple, as they said, they wanted private time, had about nine hours or so to really take in and soak in the joy of having just given birth to a baby boy and then you just saw prince harry sharing the exciting news. now we still get a wait here. we're all waiting for, of course, the name and that photo everyone wants to see of the historic baby, baby sussex -- baby boy sussex we can now say. >> about nine hours old. we'll have much more on this. wonderful. wonderful news. congratulations to them. we're all over here at the desk. we're all over here. but that's wonderful. >> yes, congratulations, it's a
