Royal Baby First Pictures: Meghan and Harry Unveil Their 'Dream' Baby Sussex at the Castle Where They Got Married

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have unveiled their new son to the world for the first time, expressing their joy at the now-seventh in line to the throne.

The as-yet unnamed child was wrapped in a white shawl and wore a white hat for his first appearance in front of reporters and cameras in the St. George's Hall at the royal family's Windsor Castle seat.

Meghan Markle said her new son "has the sweetest temperament. He's really calm. He's been the dream," the BBC reported. The former Suits actor added, "It's magic, it's pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world, so I'm really happy."

Prince Harry, who announced his son's birth to reporters on Monday, said so far everything has been "great," and that "parenting is amazing." He added, "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."

The couple, who were married last May, confirmed they would introduce their son to Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip, later today. The child is the Queen's eighth great-grandchild. Meghan said she "cannot wait" to introduce her son to the rest of the family, The Telegraph reported.

Harry also discussed whether the child looked more like him or his wife. "Everyone says that babies change so much over two weeks," he told reporters. "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."

The couple were mum on any potential names. Before he was born, bookmakers odds suggested that Arthur, Alexander, James, Spencer, Philip and Albert were the frontrunners if the baby was a boy. The child is seventh in line to the throne, after his father, Harry, who is sixth. The below graphic from Statista shows the current line of succession following Monday's new arrival.

Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, said he has welcomed his younger brother to the "sleep deprivation society that is parenting." William has three children with the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, and said he is looking forward to spending time with Harry and Meghan "when things have quietened down."

Prince Charles—William and Harry's father and next in line to the throne—said he and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, "couldn't be more delighted at the news and we're looking forward to meeting the baby when we return."

Harry and Meghan chose not to introduce their baby to the world by posing outside the hospital where he was born, as William and Kate did for all three of their children. The royal family has not yet said where Harry and Meghan's son was born, though noted the prince was present for the birth, the BBC explained.
