Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, described parenthood as “magic” as the first-time
mom and her husband, Prince Harry, debuted their newborn son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, to the world Wednesday at Windsor Castle.
“It’s magic. It’s pretty amazing,” Meghan, 37, said as Harry, 34, held their son in his arms. “I have the two best guys in the world, so I’m really happy.”
Meghan, who gave birth Monday at 5:26 a.m. local time, described the baby as “the dream.”
“He has the sweetest temperament. He’s really calm,” said Meghan, prompting Harry to joke beside her, “I wonder who he gets that from.”
“He’s just been the dream, so it’s been a special couple days,” added Meghan, who was last seen in an official public appearance in March.
Harry and Meghan revealed the baby’s name in an Instagram post later Wednesday.
The post accompanied a picture displaying Meghan maintaining the infant as she brought Archie to his great-grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.
Also in the photograph is Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, who flew in from Los Angeles for the birth of her first grandchild and is staying with the couple at their Frogmore Cottage home.
