UPDATE: The Royal baby has a name! Scroll down form more info.
The moment millions of people around the world have waited months for, the first glimpse of Britain’s newest royal, finally came this morning (May 08, 2019).
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, introduced their son to the media at a strictly-controlled event at Windsor Castle, but declined to quash several days of feverish speculation on the royal baby’s name.
“It’s magic, it’s pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world so I’m really happy,” the Los Angeles native and former Suits actress said as Harry cradled their son. “He has the sweetest temperament, he’s really calm … he’s just been the dream.”
“I don’t know where he gets that from,” Harry joked.
“Parenting is amazing,” he added. “But we’re just so thrilled to have our own bundle of joy and to spend precious time with him as he slowly, slowly starts to grow up.”
Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, pose with their son at Windsor Castle, west of London, on May 8, 2019. The newest British royal, the couple’s first child, was born on May 6.
“He’s already got a little bit of facial hair as well,” the bearded prince joked.
Harry and Meghan thanked the public for their well-wishes before they left the camera position, Harry cradling their son in his arms and Meghan resting her arm around his shoulders.
And for the boy’s name? Drumroll please…
