Reeling from the birth of their first baby together, the social media savvy Duke and Duchess of Sussex have shared their first post about their son.
In gorgeous new pictures taken by their own photographer at Windsor Castle, Meghan and Harry celebrate their baby’s first public appearance.
The Sussex Royal Instagram account shared three pictures, including two black and white shots of the new family. In a caption alongside the images, Harry and Meghan said: ‘Today The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to share their first public moment as a family.
‘They are so incredibly grateful for the warm wishes and support they’ve received from everyone around the world, since welcoming their son two days ago.’
Meghan and Harry beamed as they posed with their new son for the first time today in stunning pictures. The couple were beside themselves with joy, giggling and looking into each others eyes as they spoke to a small group of selected reporters and photographers.
The Duke gently cradled his son in his arms and could not resist sneaking a peek down at him as he apparently slept. Before they entered the majestic St George’s Hall in Windsor Castle, Harry had a secret message of support for his wife before they were greeted by cameras.
We don’t yet know the name of Baby Sussex, who arrived two days ago weighing 7lb 3oz, but we do know he is seventh in line to the throne. He is the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh’s eighth great-grandchild and the Prince of Wales’s fourth grandchild.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said their baby has the ‘sweetest temperament’ as they gushed over him.
The couple could not hide their delight as they posed for pictures with the tiny infant, with Meghan saying: ‘It’s magic, it’s pretty amazing. ‘I have the two best guys in the world so I’m really happy.’
As her husband held their son, Meghan added: ‘He has the sweetest temperament, he’s really calm.’
As they both laughed, Harry said: ‘I don’t know who he gets that from.’ Meghan added: ‘He’s just been the dream so it’s been a special couple of days.’
