UPDATE: Meghan gives birth to a baby boy

London — Special plans are being made to welcome the first child of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan.

Officials said that the landmark London Eye observation wheel on the banks of the River Thames will be lit in red, white and blue to mark the baby's birth. Those are the colours of the familiar Union Flag.

Buckingham Palace announced that Meghan gave birth to a healthy baby boy in the early hours of Monday morning, 6 May.

He will be seventh in line for the British throne.
