Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby boy will share his birthday with close family friend George Clooney, along with a host of other prominent personalities in showbiz and history.

Baby Sussex, whose real name will be revealed in the next couple of days, was born at 5.26 am on Monday, May 6. His birthday is the same as that of Hollywood heartthrob and close family friend George Clooney, who turns 58 today, according to a Mirror report.

May 6 is celebrated by a host of famous personalities including rock vocalist Bob Seger, former prime minister Tony Blair, actress Leslie Hope, Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett, author Jeffery Deaver, former footballer and manager Graeme Souness and American actress Gabourey Sidibe.

Meanwhile, the baby has already missed some notable royal anniversaries, including the Queen's 93rd birthday on April 21, Prince Louis' first birthday on April 23, and Princess Charlotte's fourth birthday on May 2.

The royal baby was always expected to arrive before Harry and Meghan's first wedding anniversary on May 19, as the Duchess previously stated her due date was the end of April or early May.

Speculation is rife that Meghan may have been induced as she was purportedly several days overdue.

Nonetheless, Harry's previously scheduled trip to Amsterdam on Wednesday, May 8 has already been postponed. However, he is still going for his planned trip to the Hague for the launch of the Invictus Games 2020 on Thursday, May 9, the Buckingham Palace announced on Friday. However, Meghan and the baby, who is seventh in line to the throne, could be left behind at a crucial time if the Duke does carry on with the trip.

Meanwhile, the Prince of Wales, the baby's grandfather is set to begin a four-day official visit to Germany with the Duchess of Cornwall on Tuesday, May 7. The newborn baby's star sign will be a Taurus and the birthstone for the month of May is an Emerald.
