The Earl and Countess of Wessex are celebrating the birth of their longed-for second child – a baby boy, who weighed in at 6lb 2oz.

Speaking outside Surrey's Frimley Park NHS Hospital, where his wife gave birth on Monday, Prince Edward said the couple were "absolutely thrilled".

The baby, who will be known as Viscount Severn, has not yet been named because, as Edward explained: "You've got to get to know the small person who's just come into the world before you pick a name."
