When it comes to Brits celebrating the royal family, there's no such thing as partying too hard. The announcement of the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby boy has brought immense excitement to the streets of the United Kingdom, with "royal superfans" showing off their U.K. pride. Photos of royal baby celebrations are popping up all over the internet, and it's clear that Brits are celebrating the baby's birth like its a national holiday.
According to an official statement from the royal family, The Duchess of Sussex gave birth to a healthy baby boy at 5:26 BST on Monday morning. The baby weighs 7 lbs and 3 oz. The statement indicated that Prince Harry was present for the birth.
Although the baby's name has not yet been released to the public, the birth is significant, as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's son is the first British-American baby to be born into the British royal family.

In typical British fashion, people in the U.K. could barely wait to show off their enthusiasm in a frenzy of parades and public demonstrations. Some of the celebratory spectacles were deemed a bit outrageous, even for the English. Especially this one, which is likely the weirdest photo you'll see all day:
