Meghan Markle gave birth to her first child with Prince Harry on Monday, though she skipped the traditional photo shoot on the steps of the hospital.

Instead, Markle and Harry introduced their newborn baby to the world on Wednesday afternoon at Windsor Castle.

She opted for loose curls and natural make-up, with a pair of nude heels to complete the look.

Prince Harry was at her side in a grey suit. Harry was holding the baby – who is still yet to be named – in the photos, a contrast to Kate Middleton’s post-hospital photo-ops with Prince William, where she held each baby for the majority of the shoot.

Talking to the camera, Markle said: “It’s magic, it’s been pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world, so I’m pretty happy.”

“He has the sweetest temperament, he’s really calm,” she added, to which Harry jokingly replied: “Don’t know where he gets that from.”

Markle’s outfit immediately made an impression with the public waiting to greet her, much like Kate Middletons’ did before her when she greeted the public outside the hospital after giving birth to her three children.

Markle’s royal sister-in-law wore a light-blue polka-dot dress by Jenny Packham after giving birth to her first child, Prince George, in July 2013.

She then wore another design by Packham after giving birth to Princess Charlotte in May 2015. This time she opted for a floral yellow dress.

Middleton most recently wore a striking red dress by Packham after giving birth to Prince Louis in April 2018, which she paired with four-inch beige heels.
