Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared the first glimpse of their newborn son to the world on Wednesday.

At St. George’s Hall in Windsor Castle, the new parents were beaming as they spoke to the press.

With the Duke of Sussex cradling his newborn son, whose name is yet to be revealed, 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 continued, before Harry jumped in and quipped: “Don’t know who he gets that from.”

Both the Duke and Duchess laughed at his remark, which seems to imply neither of them is a particularly calm person, before Markle continued, saying: “He’s just been the dream so it’s been a special couple of days.”

Prince Harry later joked that his son already has facial hair, too.

Baby Sussex was born at 5.26 a.m. on Monday and weighed 7 pounds and 3 ounces.

Markle and Harry decided against the tradition of posing for photos outside the hospital when the baby was born on Monday, instead choosing to celebrate privately as a family.
