The royal couple introduced their baby boy to the world in St. George’s Hall, where they had their wedding reception last May, on Wednesday. Harry held his son while Meghan beamed beside them wearing a white sleeveless dress.
“He has the sweetest temperament,” the proud new mom shared about her son. “He’s really calm.”
Harry then quipped, “I don’t know where he gets that from!”
“He’s just been a dream. It’s been a special couple of days,” Meghan added.
The Duchess of Sussex’s friend and wedding makeup artist Daniel Martin, who visited the couple’s Frogmore Cottage home in the weeks ahead of their new son’s May 6 birth, says the duo “weren’t anxious at all” to welcome their bundle of joy.
“They were hanging out in their backyard, cooking, just going about their daily lives,” Martin tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “They’re both very calming personalities. There was no pressure. They were just like, ‘The baby will come when it’s ready.’ “
Harry added that so far parenting has been “great.”
“Parenting’s amazing,” he said. “It’s only been two and a half days and we’re just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy and spend some precious time with him.”
