Baby Sussex has a very important meeting today!

On Wednesday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle introduced their baby boy to the world in St. George’s Hall, where they had their wedding reception last May. Asked whether they would soon be showing him off to Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, and grandfather, Prince Philip (a.k.a. the Duke of Edinburgh), Meghan shared that they had just seen 97-year-old Philip at Windsor Castle.

“We just bumped into the Duke as we were walking by, which was so nice,” she said, as Harry held their new baby beside her. “So it will be a nice moment to introduce the baby to more family. And my mom [Doria Ragland] is with us as well.”

PEOPLE understands the Queen, 93, is set to meet her youngest great-grandchild today.

“He has the sweetest temperament,” Meghan said today 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.
