Queen Elizabeth II visited her grandson at the Sussex’s home in Windsor Castle ahead of the grand reveal.

“It’s magic! It’s really amazing. I have the two best guys in the world, so I’m really happy,” Duchess Meghan, clad in a white dress, said.

“He’s already got a bit of facial hair as well,” Prince Harry, who held the swaddled Baby Sussex, joked.

The pair have yet to reveal the child’s name or potential royal title.

Duchess Meghan said her mother has been with them since the birth of Baby Sussex and that they ran into the Queen and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, on their way to meet reporters.

“Another great-grandchild,” Prince Harry quipped.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son was born on Monday morning.

Duchess Meghan says the baby has the “sweetest temperament,” adding, “He’s really calm. It’s just been a dream. It’s been a special couple of days.”

“I wonder where he gets that from,” Prince Harry said with a chuckle.

Prince Harry added that Baby Sussex’s looks have been “changing every single day.”

“Parenting is amazing. It’s only been, what? Two and a half days, three days? But we’re just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy. We’re looking forward to spending precious times with him as he slowly, slowly starts to grow up,” Prince Harry said.

Prince Harry, 34, beamed with pride after the birth of the baby boy, telling reporters on Monday, “Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. It’s been the most amazing experience I could ever possibly imagine. How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension but we’re both absolutely thrilled and so grateful to all the lovely support.”

At the time, he didn’t reveal the baby’s name, but announced that the world would meet the tot in “two days, as planned.”

The couple announced Baby Sussex’s birth on their record-shattering @SussexRoyal Instagram account.

“We are pleased to announce that Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their firstborn child in the early morning on May 6th, 2019. Their Royal Highnesses’ son weighs 7lbs. 3oz.,” the couple announced via Instagram.

Duchess Meghan, 37, eschewed Kate Middleton’s routine of posing outside of the famous Lindo Wing just hours after giving birth to show off their newborn, preferring to keep the birth — like much of her pregnancy — as private as possible.
