People are cringing at this unbelievable interview with a royal baby fan on Sky News

Unless you live under a rock, you'll be aware that yesterday, Meghan Markle the Duchess of Sussex gave birth to a healthy baby boy.

It goes without saying that legions of royalists were out on the streets yesterday, excited to welcome the newborn into the world, as well as reporters eager to hear what the 'people' had to think about the whole thing.

Unfortunately for Sky News reporter Katerina Vittozzi, she got talking to a woman minutes before the baby's birth was announced, and the interview didn't exactly go according to plan.

Clutching two giant baby balloons, the excitable Meghan Markle fan told Vittozzi that she'd driven down from Wales that morning. When asked what gender she thought the child would be, she pointed to the balloons and said:

They do sell Afro-American babies now, of ethnic minorities.

She was then asked how long she thought Meghan would be in labour for, and she replied:

I’ve no idea, I’ve never been been in labour. I’ve only voted Labour.

The interview was then wrapped up by the enthusiastic royalist saying that she thinks that the couple would have twins.

It goes without saying that as soon as the footage was shared on social media, it quickly went viral.

People thought it was hilarious.

And were slightly rude.

Others praised the reporter for attempting to keep the interview on track.

Excuse me?

While some thought the interview represented 'British humour at its finest'.

The newborn, who is seventh in line to the throne, was born at 05:26am on Monday May 6th, weighing a healthy 7 pounds 3oz.

Speaking to reporters, Prince Harry said that the pair had not yet settled on a name for the baby boy:

We have a very healthy boy. Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. It has been the most amazing experience I could have ever possibly imagined. ‘How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension.

I’m absolutely thrilled and so grateful for all the love and support out there. It has been amazing.
