Prince Harry and Meghan Markle appear in public with new baby son for first time

THE Duke and Duchess of Sussex have given the world its first glimpse of their newborn son – Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Baby Sussex made his very first public appearance at a photocall alongside a thrilled Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in the grounds of Windsor Castle on Wednesday afternoon.

Sleepy Archie was lovingly cradled by adoring dad Harry, 34, as Meghan, 37, watched on with a smile, telling journalists: "I have the two best guys in the world".

The American former actress added: "It's magic, it's pretty amazing. He's just been the dream so it's been a special couple of days.

"He has the sweetest temperament, he's really calm".

As the couple giggled with excitement, Harry quipped: "I don't know who he gets that from!"

Asked who little Archie Harrison takes after most, Meghan said: "We're still trying to figure that out".

Harry added: "Everyone says that babies change so much over two weeks we're basically monitoring how the changing process happens over this next month really. But his looks are changing every single day, so who knows.

"It's great. Parenting is amazing. It's only been two and a half days, three days, but we're just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy".

Asked to show more of their son's face to the cameras, Meghan laughed as Harry joked: "He's already got a little bit of facial hair as well, wonderful."

Megan then added: "Thank you everybody for all the well wishes and kindness, it just means so much."

The Duke and Duchess welcomed Archie into the world in the early hours of Monday, May 6 – almost exactly 12 months after their marriage in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018.

Archie is seventh in line to the throne after his grandfather Prince Charles, his uncle Prince William and his three children, and Prince Harry himself.

He is also the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh's eighth great-grandchild and the Prince of Wales's fourth grandchild.
