Just days after welcoming their first child, a baby boy, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have released the first pictures. Stepping out at St George's Hall at Windsor Castle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex introduced their adorable new bub to the world!
Meghan wore a Givenchy dress alongside Prince Harry, who was in a grey suit for the occasion.
Asked what it’s like being a new mum, Meghan said: “It’s magic. It’s pretty amazing. I have the best two guys in the world, so I’m really happy.” She went on to say that Baby Sussex “has the sweetest temperament. He’s really calm.”
Harry then added, “I don’t know where he gets that from!”
“He’s just been a dream,” Meghan said. “It’s been a special couple of days.”
When asked whether the baby takes after anyone, Meghan said: “We’re still trying to figure that out.”
Harry added: “Everyone says babies change so much over two weeks. We’re basically monitoring how the changing process happens over this next month, really. His looks are changing every single day, so who knows?”
When asked about parenting, Harry said: “It’s great. Parenting is amazing. It’s only been two and a half days, but we’re just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy.
The royal couple welcomed their baby boy on at 5.26am on Monday, May 6. They announced the news in a palace statement, on the @SussexRoyal Instagram account and by proud father Harry himself, speaking at Windsor Castle’s Royal Mews.
“I’m very excited to announce that Meghan and myself had a baby boy earlier this morning, a very healthy boy," the beaming Duke said. “Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. It’s been the most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined.”
He paid tribute to his wife and added of his newborn son: “As every father and parent will ever say, you know, your baby is absolutely amazing, but this little thing is absolutely to-die-for, so I’m just over the moon.”
The duke also revealed off camera that he had only had about two hours’ sleep.
The baby’s title is expected to be Earl of Dumbarton – as the son of a duke, he is entitled to use one of Harry’s lesser titles as a courtesy title. Harry was made Earl of Dumbarton by the Queen on the morning of his wedding, as well as being given a dukedom.
Baby Sussex will one day inherit the title the Duke of Sussex from Harry. His surname is expected to be Mountbatten-Windsor.
Congratulations again to the proud new parents!
