Just two days after welcoming their first royal baby on Monday, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry publicly introduced their son to the world on Wednesday.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex addressed the press at St George’s Hall at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, with Harry cradling the new little royal in his arms.
“It’s magic, it’s pretty amazing,” Meghan said at the press photocall. “I have the two best guys in the world so I’m really happy. He has the sweetest temperament, he’s really calm.”
She added, “He’s just been the dream so it’s been a special couple of days.”
Meghan said the couple is excited to introduce their son to Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip soon, along with several other family members in the coming days.
Buckingham Palace announced the arrival of Baby Sussex, whose name has still not been publicly announced, on Monday morning. In a statement, the Palace shared that mother and son were doing well, adding that other members of the royal family were “delighted” by the news.
“The Duchess’s mother, Doria Ragland, who is overjoyed by the arrival of her first grandchild, is with Their Royal Highnesses at Frogmore Cottage,” a statement from the palace said.
Harry’s brother Prince William and wife Kate Middleton sent their well wishes to the new parents Tuesday and jokingly welcomed them to the “Sleep Deprivation Society.”
But no one was happier than new dad Harry, who spoke with the media Monday just a few hours after his son was born.
The overjoyed Duke gushed about the new addition and praised Meghan for her strength.
“It’s been the most amazing experience I can ever possibly imagine,” Harry said, joyfully addressing the press. “How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension”
He added, “As every father and parent would ever say, your baby is absolutely amazing, but this little thing is absolutely to die for so I’m just over the moon.”
Many have commented on how refreshing it was to see Meghan’s baby belly still showing — as it typically is just two days after birthing a human being. The comments were in contrast to sister-in-law Kate Middleton who was heavily criticized following the birth of her and William’s first son, George, with the public saying she demonstrated an extremely false reality of motherhood.
