The royal birth announcement has been also formalised by the traditional display outside Buckingham Palace.

It is tradition that this goes on display on a ceremonial easel for members of the public to view for approximately 24 hours.

The palace’s announcement also included a subtle nod to Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana. In keeping with past royal baby statements, the notice lists family members who “have been informed and are delighted with the news,” but it deviates from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s announcements by naming members of Diana’s family ― her sisters Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah McCorquodale and her brother Earl Spencer.
