Shelagh Fogarty did battle with republican Kevin Maguire over the purpose of the Royal Family in 2019, and LBC listeners loved the debate.

The pair locked horns as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex proudly presented their newborn son to the world on Wednesday afternoon.

Speaking in St George’s Hall at Windsor Castle, Prince Harry said he found parenting “amazing” and that he and Meghan were “so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy”.

The baby, whose name has not yet been announced, is seventh in line to the throne.

He is the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh's eighth great-grandchild and the Prince of Wales's fourth grandchild.

The row went back and forth and left LBC listeners gripped throughout.
