What a difference a royal year makes!

As Meghan Markle and Prince Harry get ready to celebrate their first wedding anniversary, they are doing so as new parents.

The royal couple debuted their newborn son on Wednesday at St. George’s Hall in Windsor Castle — which is fitting since that’s exactly where they had their royal wedding reception one year ago on May 19, 2018.

The new parents opened up about Baby Sussex, revealing that he is “calm” with the “sweetest temperament.

“He’s just been a dream,” Meghan said. “It’s been a special couple of days.”

As the couple turned to walk away, their signature PDA style was on display as Meghan lovingly wrapped her arm around Harry — just as she did in November 2017 after they announced their engagement.

In their first joint interview following their engagement, the couple was asked if they have plans to start having a family soon.

“Not currently, no,” Harry said, as Meghan laughed at his response.

“Of course, one step at a time and hopefully we’ll start a family in the near future,” Harry added.

Now, a year and a half later, the couple are the proud parents of a son.

When asked about his first few days as a father on Wednesday, Harry said: “It’s great. Parenting is amazing. It’s only been two and a half days, but we’re just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy.
