Prince Harry and Meghan Markle told the world that their little boy Archie had been born on Instagram , and the new dad made an excited announcement near their Windsor home.
But before they shared the happy news with fans across the globe, they first had to tell their nearest and dearest about the little arrival.
And while you might imagine the royals have a fancy way to make big announcements, it was actually very, very normal.
According to Mike Tindall, who is married to Harry's cousin Zara, the Duke simply put a message in the royal cousins WhatsApp group.
As well as the Tindalls, we imagine Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie are also in the group as Harry and William are very close with them.
Mike told the Telegraph : "He'll be a great dad. Obviously, he's godfather to Lena, but we've got a great group of young ones in the family now.
"Lena and obviously Louis are similar ages and Mia's sort of in between Charlotte and George, and then you've got Peter's children Savannah and Isla who are just a little bit older.
"Harry, he's busy, but he loves playing with them all and he'll be a good dad."
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are due to met little Archie for the first time this afternoon at Frogmore Cottage .
George, Charlotte and Louis are also very excited to meet their little cousin, and a source says they keep asking about him.
A source told the Mirror: “All of the family have been dying to meet little Archie and are really excited to finally congratulate Harry and Meghan in person.
“Harry’s family wanted to give him and Meghan some time to settle in to family life and Meghan’s mum Doria is still staying with them as the baby gets used to his surroundings.
“Prince Charles and Camilla were in constant contact when they were in Germany and are so excited to spend some time with the new family.
“William and Kate are also really looking forward to paying a visit as are their own three children.
“Prince George, 5 and Princess Charlotte, 4, have already been asking their parents when they can meet their new cousin, they are as excited as anybody.”
