Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, described parenthood as “magic” as the first-time mom and her husband, Prince Harry, debuted their newborn son to the world Wednesday at Windsor Castle.
“It’s magic. It’s pretty amazing,” Meghan, 37, said as Harry, 34, held their son in his arms. “I have the two best guys in the world, so I’m really happy.”
Meghan, who gave birth Monday at 5:26 a.m. local time, described the baby, whose name will be announced later, as “the dream.”
“He has the sweetest temperament. He’s really calm,” said Meghan, prompting Harry to joke beside her, “I wonder who he gets that from.”
“He’s just been the dream, so it’s been a special couple days,” added Meghan, who was last seen in an official public appearance in March.
Meghan, dressed in a cream, sleeveless trench dress by Givenchy, touched her son’s head affectionately as she and Harry, who held the baby throughout the photo call, answered reporters’ questions at Windsor Castle, a short walk from their Frogmore Cottage home.
Their baby’s head was covered in a cashmere hat by G.H. Hurt & Son and he was wrapped in an ivory white Leaves and Flowers Baby Shawl by the same brand.
The interview with the family of three took place inside St. George’s Hall at Windsor Castle, the same venue for Harry and Meghan’s wedding reception after their May 19 wedding service in St George’s Chapel.
When asked if the baby resembles mom or dad, Harry and Meghan said they are still “trying to figure that out.”
“Everyone says that babies change so much over two weeks — we’re basically sort of monitoring how the changing process happens over this next month really,” Harry said. “But his looks are changing every single day, so who knows.”
While sporting a beard himself, Harry also joked, “He’s already got a little bit of facial hair as well, wonderful.”
