Prince Harry and Meghan Markle now have a name for Baby Sussex – Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor!
The two-day-old infant was lovingly cradled by his adoring father and watched attentively by Meghan, who was herself pictured for the first time in six weeks since withdrawing from public life ahead of the birth.
The couple appeared to be beside themselves with joy, giggling and looking into each other’s eyes as they spoke, while Harry could not resist sneaking a peek down at his son as he apparently slept.
Harry said: ‘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.’
Asked how he found parenting, Harry added: ‘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.’
Harry said they were looking forward to spending some ‘precious times with him as he slowly, slowly starts to grow up.’
Later, 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.’
Meghan added: ‘Thank you everybody for all the well wishes and kindness, it just means so much.’
