Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on Wednesday gave millions of people around the world a first glimpse of their first baby and Britain’s newest royal family member.
The royal couple introduced their son to the media in a tightly-controlled photo opportunity at Windsor Castle, but declined to quash several days of curiosity over the royal baby’s name.
Meghan, who appeared happy and healthy, said her son has “been a dream” and has the “sweetest temperament, he’s really calm.” The new-born slept right through his first media encounter.
“It’s magic, it’s pretty amazing, and I have the two best guys in the world, so I’m really happy,” she said during her son’s first brief encounter with a television camera.
“His looks are changing every single day,” Harry noted. “Parenting is amazing. It’s only been, what, two and a half days, three days, but we’re just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy, and to be able to spend some special time with him as he slowly starts to grow up.”
“He’s already got a little bit of facial hair as well,” Prince Harry joked.
Harry and Meghan thanked the public for their well-wishes before they left the camera position, Harry cradling their son in his arms and Meghan resting her arm around his shoulders.
