What was on the radio as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their baby boy?

May 6, 2019

It's official. Prince Harry confirmed on Monday morning that Meghan Markle has given birth to a baby boy. The family is "thrilled" and Baby Sussex is doing "incredibly well", as the most anticipated child of the year has made a private but grand entrance into the world. 

May 6th 2019 will go down in history for the Royal Family, and what better way to remember it than through music.

Forever when they talk about the events of this day, people will be reminded that "Old Town Road" by Lil Nas X was the number one song in the country when Baby Sussex arrived. The country trap song that has "the horses in the back" is linked through time with the latest Royal newborn, and Dad even made the announcement of the family's new arrival with, yep, "horses in the back."

We doubt you will find the inescapable anthem in Buckingham Palace, but you never know. It did get us to thinking though about the number one songs when the Royals were born. Take a look below at the top tune from the Billboard Chart when some of our favorite monarchy munchkins arrived.
