The Duke & Duchess of Sussex debut Baby Sussex at a photocall in Windsor

Harry and Meghan present Baby Sussex


These photos are maybe the cutest things I’ve ever seen!!! SQUEE. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have released the first photos of Baby Sussex! Baby Sussex’s name has still not been announced, but people are expecting the name to come out today, probably after they introduce the Queen to the baby and get her approval on the name. Meg, Harry and the baby were supposed to do a short little photocall outdoors at Windsor Castle, but since it was rainy there today, they did the photos and video inside St. George’s Hall (where they had their wedding). Meghan said:

“It’s magic. It’s pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world so I’m really happy. He has the sweetest temperament. He’s just been the dream, so it’s been a special couple of days.”

I’m dying!! Ah, this is so cute. I’m surprised she wore white for the photocall, but it’s probably just for an hour or so. I’m also surprised that Harry was the one to hold the baby for the photocall! I bet they haven’t put him down once. The baby is wearing a little grey cap so we can’t see if he has dark hair or ginger hair. I suspect dark hair, don’t you?

Here’s the video:

    ALL THE HEART EYES! What a great thing to wake up to this morning. I love that Harry is holding the little one. They seem so happy.

    • Alissa says:

      I also really love that Harry was the one holding him!

      • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

        He’s been presented to the Queen: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Gotta say, while I’m not loving “Archie”, I do love Harrison; that is my older nephew’s middle name (and here, obviously for Harry). Surprised Charles and Philip aren’t in it. Seems at this point, the baby will have Earl of Dumbarton, and not Prince or HRH at all.

      • Bettyrose says:

        OMG! I *love* the name. It sounds so…American!! Archie’s one of our most famous pop culture gingers!! (And Harrison, of course, the biggest star of 80s blockbusters).

      • Becks1 says:

        Harrison had BETTER not be because he is “Harry’s son.” because that would just be super lame. LOL.

      • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

        Becks1, I think it’s just to have Harry’s name in there, w/out it being Henry or Harry itself. As I said, personally, I love the name 😊 (Or perhaps Meg OR Harry have a “thing” for Harrison Ford?? lol)

      • otaku fairy... says:

        It didn’t even cross my mind that they would still need the queen to approve the name of their baby. He’s cute though. Glad they had a healthy baby.

      • Feeshalori says:

        I doubt they needed the Queen’s approval for his name since he’s down the line in succession, but wanted to present him first and tell her as a courtesy before releasing it to the media.

      • Mrs.Krabapple says:

        Yes, and holding him correctly, too! I cringe when I see people holding a baby like a doll, with the baby’s head flopping backwards.

    • Bamaborn says:

      He’s adorable!

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      I can’t believe this is THE ONE MORNING I SLEPT LATE!! Lol. DAMN!! The baby is just beautiful. Harry and Meg look besotted with their little one. They make a lovely little family.

      Wouldn’t surprise me if the baby’s hair is dark now, but will change into a shade of red as babies’ hair can fall out/grow back in a different color/texture after the first couple of months.

      Either way, a beautiful, calm baby! Polo Baby is here, finally!! 😊. Can’t wait to hear what they’ve chosen for his name!

      Mazel tov, Sussexes! May you have much joy with your little one! 🍼👶🏼

  2. truthSF says:

    Aww! Look at his beaming parents! What a cute lil button nose!😍🥰🤗

  3. Erinn says:

    OMF. These are adorable. What a sweet little baby boy.

    And Meghan looks like a hottie. I mean that in the kindest ways – she looks AMAZING. I think both Meg and Kate look great with a fuller face, though they’re genuinely pretty when they are slimmer as well.

    • Millenial says:

      It’s amazing to me that the crazies think she wasn’t really pregnant. You can’t fake the fuller face.

      • Erinn says:

        It’s truly baffling. I suppose they’ll just say she must have eaten extra to make up for it or something. But it’s just pure craziness.

      • OriginalLala says:

        They are insane – some of the comments are absolutely insane, like that she purposely gave birth on a Monday for maximum media exposure and that the “secrecy” around the labour/birth was because they used a surrogate..absolute craziness!

      • Beli says:

        @Erinn – That’s not batshit enough for the crazies. Obviously she was taking drugs to mimic the effects of pregnancy 😉

      • Millenial says:

        I legit have to wonder if it’s Russian trolls spreading that stuff, in attempts to de-stabilize the monarchy and de-stabilize Britain even more post-Brexit. I really would like to see it investigated the way the U.S. conspiracies have been (Pizzagate, etc…)

        Or maybe it’s just crazy racists.

      • Erinn says:

        Hahaha, Beli, that’s true. Or she’s wearing prosthetics to make her face and body more full. Maybe she’s stuffed herself with Hillary’s emails.

        It’s just so mind boggling. I’m not someone who is a DIE HARD M&H fan. But I DO really like them – I think they’re great for the role that they have, but they do have a very privileged existence just like any royal. But they seem like lovely people who do care. I just can’t comprehend how anyone would be able to muster anything more than feelings of disinterest towards them.

        Well actually. I can comprehend. Racism, people who hate progress, people who are xenophobic, etc etc. They look at what M&H represent and just loathe them for it.

      • Tina says:

        It would be very inefficient for it to be Russia-sponsored. Most people here really don’t care about the monarchy that much. And Harry is far enough down the line of succession now that destablising him wouldn’t achieve much of anything. I think there are trolls, but they are of the racist variety and come from different places, like that investigation showed.

      • Starkiller says:

        It’s very unlikely to be Russian trolls—Russia doesn’t get anything out of this. Brits just hate Americans. It’s that simple, no big conspiracy.

      • Isa says:

        She’s still walking kind of funny from the birth. People are ridiculous with their theories. It just makes them feel special and in the know.

        And she does look gorgeous with the fuller face. Mine went straight to my chin. :-/

      • Tina says:

        Brits do not hate Americans.

      • tmbg says:

        How can they think that? Her feet are still so swollen that they’re bursting out of her shoes! 🤦🏼‍♀️

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @Starkiller, The Brits do not hate Americans. I have many friends from the UK and my friends all really like or love US Americans and the USA. If anyone has trouble with the USA it is the British Press and more specifically the tabloids. The tabloids run down the USA for one reason and one reason only: click-bait to generate $$$$$. Megs and Harry have made the Daily Fail so much $$$$ that I really think the Fail should by them a second home anywhere they want to show appreciation for enhancing their bottom line! LOL! LOL!

      • notasugarhere says:

        A few months ago, peeved royal reporters were convinced any pro-Meghan comments were from Russian bots. The responses from the Meghan fans were hilarious.

        That anyone claims Kate has been subjected to the same or worse as Meghan? Nowhere near.

      • Yvette says:

        @Millenial, agreed. You can also not fake her postpartum bump either. She is glowing! :)

    • PrincessK says:

      From some pics you can see that her boobs are engorged with milk, the first few days of breast feeding can be tough. Also her feet look a bit swollen. But she looks radiant as a new mother. The baby really is ‘to die for’….he is gorgeous.

  4. suharik26 says:

    Delicious! Delicious tiny munchkin. Wish them all the joy and sleepless glory. He is so tasty. I had a little boy a few years ago and couldn’t peel away. Wearing heels 2 days after giving birth and a manicure wasn’t an option. not that she has to come out looking drab but still, no one looks like this. She’s bleeding bloody murder, poor thing and is profoundly exhausted. Wish her all the best in the coming months.

    • Tris says:

      I would have LOVED her to be wearing shuffley bunny slippers instead of heels, but otherwise she was perfection!

    • Sam Louise says:

      “Delicious tiny munchkin” I love this description! :) They both look so elated; nice to see some happiness in the news for once. Meghan is glowing as well as looking tired. I hope they have a lot of time to bond as a family. I can’t wait to hear the name!

  5. Kemi says:

    Awww. He’s so cute

  6. Becks1 says:

    I love this. I love everything about it. I loved that they did this on their own terms, that they waited two days, I love how they look, I love how they only had the one reporter there – it was so much easier to here what was being said, it seemed so much less chaotic – good choices all around.

    That baby is adorable, and Harry and Meghan both look like new parents should look lol – tired but thrilled.

  7. Scal says:

    Adorable! I like how they did the one on one photo call. It feels more intimate and low key.
    Harry’s already starting to do the holding the baby bounce-so cute!

  8. OriginalLala says:

    awww, they look so happy, and the wee baby Sussex is adorable!

  9. Abby says:

    the amount of joy from the photos is just divine

  10. launicaangelina says:

    Awwww I love it! So cute!

  11. Smiles says:

    Oh my god!!!! How precious!!!!!

  12. Beli says:

    So cute! And they both look so so happy! Harry’s cheeks must hurt by now!

  13. Emily says:

    Aaaahhhhh! Look at that sweet little face. I can’t wait to hear the name. They all look great and very happy.

    I married a ginger, I tease it was mostly because of his hair, and none of my 3 have red hair. I’ve been told it skips a generation, so maybe someday I’ll get red-headed grandkids.

    • Elisabeth says:

      i’m a ginger and I got a ginger daughter. It’s always a throw of the dice

      • BayTampaBay says:

        I want to see the hair. I hope it is red like his papa’s!

      • PrincessK says:

        Well l am pleased that his little hat was firmly over his head and we did not see a wisp of hair. Far too much interest in what this baby looks like, most importantly Meghan has safely delivered an adorable baby boy.

    • Hunter says:

      My grandfather was a ginger and he had 2 gingers and one blonde child. My aunt and uncle, the 2 gingers, have no redhead kids. My mom, the blonde, had 4 kids, 3 of them gingers, including myself. One of my redhead sisters has 2 children with a redhead man, and both of her kids have hair of fiery copper. She’s due any day now with her 3rd, and we wait with baited breath! :)

      My redhead aunt, while she has no redhead children, she does have one redhead granddaughter. It seems to be a crapshoot.

      So happy for M&H! I wish the best for their little family.

    • RoseMary says:

      To be a redhead requires both parents to carry the recessive red hair gene. My father had dark brown hair and my mother had black hair, both straight as a board, and I was a curly red haired kid. Surprised the hell out of everybody. Only redhead on either side of family. But both my parents, unknown to them, carried the recessive gene. I was an only, so no more.

  14. Beetlejuice says:

    Yes genetics will likely make her dark hair outrank his ginger hair in bubs. So cute.

    • Prissa says:

      Not always. I’m mixed with coloring like Meghan and my daughter took after her father with red hair. It got darker auburn as she got older tho.

      • Beetlejuice says:

        You’re right. I forgot about my Indian – Aussie friend who somehow ended up with a ginger beard. It would be unlikely bubs will be ginger, but definitely not impossible.

      • Isa says:

        Same here, Prissa.

      • Sparkly says:

        I wouldn’t even say it’s unlikely. Genetics are crazy!

        I’m half Mexican, super white though because mom’s side is Irish heritage, but I have the dark hair and eyes and am the only one of my siblings without brown skin. I married the only redhead in a family full of mostly NA blood (one redheaded grandpa, other 3 grandparents were native & *entire* family is dark skinned/haired). 2 out of our three kiddos are as ginger as it gets. Our son is dark and looks like my sister and hubby’s brother had a baby. LOL

    • Moneypenny says:

      It is more likely that the baby will have dark hair, but genetics are amazing and you never know what you’ll get. Could definitely be a ginger.

      • isabelle says:

        I’m mixed race, both parents with darker skin coloring. I turned out white. White white. I was affectionately called the white sheep of the family.

  15. astrid says:

    What a nice way to start today. Lovely photo of the family.

  16. gingersnaps says:

    Meghan is pure class. I love the bit when she thanked everyone for their well wishes & kindness. Continue to live your best life Meghan!

    Also, it amazes me when babies just sleep through all the talking. I remember mine was always crying and baby wearing really saved my sanity.

  17. HK9 says:

    I’m so happy for them-they look great, and I’m glad Megan and the baby are healthy. I cannot wait for the name. :-)

  18. Tris says:

    He’’s sooooo cuiiite! They are soooo cute

  19. smcollins says:

    Awwwww….adorable! They are just glowing with happiness. Congrats to them!

  20. MrsBanjo says:

    These are wonderful. They’re absolutely glowing. He is adorable.

  21. Kay says:

    Beautiful family!

    I think light to dark brown hair. I wonder if it will be curly like Meghan’s?! That would be adorable 😍

  22. Snowflake says:

    What a sweet video. I hate how people say Meghan is fake. she just seems like a naturally sweet nice person to me.

    • tempest prognosticator says:

      I agree. It’s so odd that they can watch a video of her interacting with others and not see her as kind and charming.

    • swirlmamad says:

      Exactly this! I think some people are just cynical and bitter, and automatically look for the worst in everyone.

  23. DaggerIsle says:

    So cuuuuuute!!!! Love tiny babies.
    Harry looked so proud he was ready to burst. And she couldn’t stop stroking his little head. Aaww.

    When was cutie born then? Was the at the Portland overnight?

  24. Seraphina says:

    Beautiful. Love thy Harry is holding him and Megs looks great. I couldn’t do it a few days after. Congrats to the happy family.

  25. BeGoneOrangeCheeto says:

    Meghan looks stunning! Absolutely beautiful. Harry looks like he will not give up that baby to anyone lol. I’m so happy for them after the hot mess that is her extended family and the British tabloids.

  26. MOT says:

    So sweet! And love how touchy feely she is with Harry…melts my cold dead heart 😊

  27. Beach Dreams says:

    Everyone looks so lovely and happy! This really was the best way to introduce Baby Sussex to the world. Hoping Meghan can enjoy her maternity leave in peace.

    Also…the amount of bitterness emanating from RRs (especially Palmer and Tominey) is delicious. They’re truly realizing how much they’ve lost control.

    • gingersnaps says:

      One can hope! But the snipes and backhanded comments are already starting.
      I just hope they continue to tune them out and just live their life.

    • Kittycat says:

      This is the best way. Royal Reporters are in a bad place. The Sussexes dont need them.

      • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

        I saw Palmers’s tweet last night (about this photo call) and I have to say, I honestly did a double-take! I thought it was nasty!! I had a literal “WTF did you just say kind??” of reaction. That little, little man should NEVER get another drop of access to the Sussex family. EVER.

    • Becks1 says:

      Those two……are horrible. The whole thing on twitter is about the crazy conspiracy theories that someone mentioned above, and how Meghan and Harry are on DANGEROUS GROUND. Or I think it was “dodgy ground.” Like, what on earth?

      • gingersnaps says:

        I’ve never followed Palmer and Tominey and most of the royal reporters but I saw Palmer’s tweet about his trashed article regarding how H&M’s behaviour are alienating the British public. Hahaha! Ironic how they keep harping on about H&M being far off the succession and irrelevant and then also complain about how they should be more visible?! Geez. Someone needs a chat with a shrink.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        Checked into the Daily Fail to read comments. 90% are very positive. The 10% that are negative run toward money as in “one more sponger for the tax payer to fund” but that is just daily regular babble from The Fail commentariat no matter who the are talking about, Royals, Politicians, Lords…etc…etc… I think the editors of the Daily Fail may be changing their tune slightly on Megs & Harry as few of the comments, especially the negative ones, seemed to be the generic copy & paste from paid troll posters that one usually sees at the Daily Fail.

      • Becks1 says:

        I don’t follow Tominey but I follow Palmer – or I did, I think I stopped, but he gets retweeted in my timeline enough that I see a lot of his tweets – but omg, they are both starting to sound unhinged. Like, its one thing for the commenters on various gossip sites or newspaper sites (I’m including us in that, ha) to engage in conspiracy theories and the like. the RRs should not be doing that.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Certain RRs are allowing those comments on their sites and encouraging the conspiracy theories. Then they wonder why Harry and Meghan shut them out.

      • PrincessK says:

        Thankfully DM is moderating the comments, shutting out the nasties. Decent people on DM sound so relieved that nice comments are getting through and the atmosphere is happy and joyful, at least on the main article.

  28. Pineapple says:

    AAAAAAHHHH!!! I am so happy for them. And she looks like a new mom. Her hair isn’t perfect, she looks unkempt but gloriously happy. I love that. She sure is a different kind of Royal. Celebrities … they’re just like US … but not really.

  29. Nev says:

    Welcome Prince!!!!! Yayyyyy

  30. Guest says:

    Awww 🥰 so sweet

  31. Lucy2 says:

    Aw! I’m glad they took a couple days for themselves before doing the photo call. They both seem so happy and completely in love with that little baby.

  32. Ellie says:

    Baby is sooo cute omg! (heart eyes heart eyes!) I’m just waiting for the name now :D

  33. Carol says:

    I love that she still looks pregnant; I know I sure did after my sons. I cannot believe she is in white and heels. They look happy, and the baby looks sweet. That seemed like the best way to handle a photo op. A few people taking photos and one person asking questions; better than seeing them from afar stand on the steps and watching them get in a car. I will now channel my mother – Meghan, stop messing with your hair!

    • Wisca says:

      I love her still looking pregnant too Carol. I bet she wore that dress & belt to highlight that tummy.

    • PrincessK says:

      The location of the photo call meant that they had to look formal, and Meghan would be around Harry’s elbow in flats.

    • phyllis says:

      Lol Carol – there’s little she can do to control her uterus shrinking back to normal (although breastfeeding can speed it up a bit I hear). For some of us, it can happen quite quickly, but for others it takes more time. Nothing to do with weight.

  34. Kittycat says:

    First of all babies are beautiful.

    Second of all they look amazing.

    Third of all the interior is beautiful.

    Fourth of all I am still team ginger for baby Sussex.

    Like the perfect way to introduce your baby to the world.

  35. Redgrl says:

    Awwww! So cute! Now c’mon guys – name him Jack (ha!). And I also hope he is a ginger!

  36. Ellie says:

    And not to interrupt the baby talk but I didn’t know they would have to seek approval from the Queen for the name? Maybe they’ll take her opinion into account but I thought her firm approval didn’t need to account for those after George and Charlotte (not even Louis).

    • Tina says:

      Yeah, they don’t need to get her approval. They’ll most likely tell her first as that is the tradition, but they will just be telling her, not asking for her permission.

      • Ellie says:

        Yes, I thought so to. They’ll tell her they’ve chosen the name but it won’t be a formal procedure of asking for permission (like they won’t have to change it or anything if she doesn’t like it).

  37. TheOriginalMia says:

    What a cutie! Look at his nose! For someone who was a firecracker in utero, he’s calm and sleepy now. Meghan looks great. Tired, but very happy. Harry is still beaming. So happy for them.

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      Your “firecracker” made me think of the video someone captured of his tiny little foot moving, kicking out of Meghan’s tummy! Did you see that? OMG, it was a little inch-long foot shape pushing out… too too cute!!! He *was* an active little thing; no wonder she was always stroking/calming him 😊

    • Moose says:

      Meghan looked absolutely radiant, and the three of them are so clearly very much in love with each other.

  38. Bohemian Angel says:

    Baby looks soooo cute! Mum and dad are just beaming and proud. Wishing them all the best. ❤

  39. OSTONE says:

    Congratulations! What a beautiful family!

  40. Jen says:

    I love them together! They are such an adorable family.

    Mark my words, William is planning to be holding the baby for their next one.

  41. Well-Wisher says:

    So happy for them. Cute family.

  42. vanna says:

    That’s actually St George’s Hall, not Chapel. Anywayyy there are so cute and look so happy! I hope they give us some nice up close pics on Instagram soon. God they are a gorgeous couple.

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      Isn’t that hall where they had their wedding lunch after the ceremony? It rings a bell. (Or was it Eugenie’s wedding breakfast…or both?)

  43. Loretta says:

    The baby is soooooo cute and they looks so happy! They’re glowing.

  44. Chatty Cath says:

    BBC’s RR Nicholas Witchell, sourly commented on the Royal Family ‘embracing being multiracial’. Firstly there’s no scientific reason to call different skin and hair colour ‘race’, secondly what a beautiful vid of a happy family who are surrounded by love. Can’t fake that. Piers Morgan now looks deranged.

  45. Tris says:

    So awesome and feminist-forward for Harry to be holding the wee sweet baby! Also smart to deflect from her being ‘controlling’ etc. They are so lovely and clever!

    • Katherine says:

      Yes he’s truly progressive. *sarcasm* I mean. William held George. Charles held William. I adore Meghan and Harry, probably more so than William and Kate. But this is a weird comment and isn’t really indicative of as much feminist groundbreaking as you seem to think it is.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        Feminist groundbreaking was when Charlotte did not have to cede her place in the line of Succession to Louis. Further feminist groundbreaking will be when the eldest child, no matter what the sex, will get the hereditary Peerage title. As in Kitty Spencer will be the next Countess Spencer and inherit stewardship of the Althorp estate.

      • Clay says:

        I agree, it was probably a question of Meghan being still exhausted and tired after giving birth, you can see she’s having a little bit of trouble walking in high heels, she walks slowly and she has trouble at keeping balance, she holds to Harry for dear life even when they’re standing and understandably so, holding a baby and walking in those heels makes Harry the more suitable to hold the baby.

    • Ellie says:

      Tris, plenty of fathers have held the newborn babies. Royal fathers or not. This would have been feminist forward in the 60s or something, but it’s been completely normal for decades now.

    • Peg says:

      Piers Morgan’s mother texted him yesterday and asked him not to talk about Meghan and Harry, saying she can’t sleep, when he go on about the Sussexes’, think she realized that her son have a Fixation on Meghan.
      Then his co-host told him to get over it, that he only met her once, and he said “but we were friends for a year and a half, then he said Meghan could be friends with him, if she names the baby Piers, he was trying to be funny, but it came over as pathetic.

      • Moose says:

        I think Piers is a nasty piece of work. When H&M first went public he claimed (in the British media anyway) that he was Meghan’s best friend (although, as far as I can tell, he never clarified how and when this miracle occurred) and that she “cut him out of her life” in preference for Harry. He is now bitter and twisted as he feels aggrieved that he doesn’t have an “in” with H&M, isn’t privy to their personal lives, and wasn’t invited to the wedding. He is now a H&M hater and never passes up an opportunity to criticise them. He just doesn’t understand how and why H&M are, and always will be, far more popular than him with the British public.

      • A says:

        Piers (Pughe-)Morgan strikes me as the type of man who, after a woman speaks two kind words to him in his general direction, builds up a whole fantasy relationship with them in his head, never realizing that it was entirely one-sided on his part and not reciprocated on any level. He’s a person who desperately wants to be the center of the world, a mover and a shaker as it were, and he certainly fancies himself as such, when the reality is that neither him nor his blowhard opinions actually count for anything.

    • Becks1 says:

      Yeah, I mean, there are things to praise Harry and Meghan for, Harry holding the baby, while adorable, and he looks thrilled, isn’t as groundbreaking as some apparently think.

    • Amy says:

      Prince Edward held both of their babies on the steps for the photo call, so Harry holding his isn’t really anything special or earth shattering.

      • notasugarhere says:

        In the case of Louise, Sophie was still recovering from the emergency c-section. Ditto Sarah with Eugenie.

    • Tris says:

      Wow, I really pissed you guys off with my joy and excitement, didn’t I? Thanks for the bubble burst.

      • teehee says:

        Same happened to me. I still think its forward and should be taken as a positive. I love it myself and think its great despite the party poopers.

  48. LORENA says:

    SOOOO Cute!!!!!

    Is it me or does Meghan look slightly pale? You can kind of tell shes been mostly indoors for a month. I hope she gets to have some time in the sun now! And she looks so nervous! Its really endearing!
    Beautiful family!!!

    • Snowflake says:

      Yeah she is. My husband is mixed and doing pest control when i met him. He was almost as dark as Idris Elba. During the winter after he changed to an indoor job, he became a caramel color. I teased him, you’re not the man i met.

    • Peg says:

      She lives in England, rainy and damp.

    • Harla says:

      I think Meghan looked very vulnerable and overwhelmed with love. I have a feeling that she’s shed a number of tears over the last couple of days, tears of joy and complete happiness.

  49. Weaver says:

    Aww. You can tell she’s exhausted but still looks lovely.

  50. Minxx says:

    The baby is so adorable! They’re glowing with happiness…

  51. teehee says:

    Oh I am with Meghan all the way. I would have done the EXACT same, made HIM hold the baby the ENTIRE time, I love how shes flipping this onto its head to make things FAIR.

    YESSSSSS…!!!!! A real man doesn’t have any problem with it, and is not less of a man for caring for his own child. And women are more than mothers, so YESSSSSSSSS some more!!

    • Peg says:

      Harry might not have given her a choice😂 The man is in love with his son.

      • Olenna says:

        Agree. Harry is totally in love with his little man, who is absolutely adorable. My first thought when seeing him walk out and NOT hand the baby over to Meghan for photos was of those seagulls from Little Nemo calling, “Mine, mine, mine”!

    • Amy says:

      Prince Edward held both of his babies on the steps for the photo call, Harry holding his baby isn’t really anything new or earth shattering.

  52. Valiantly Varnished says:

    They are such a lovely family!

  53. Chimney says:

    Awwww Aunt Flo is in town and this is just too much! Had to close my office door so my coworkers wouldn’t notice my sniffling haha

    Baby Sussex at last, he is adorable!! They are both beaming and it’s wonderful to see. I hope they enjoy their time as a new trio!

  54. FredsMother says:

    What a very happy family they make. They look thrilled, tired and in love. Meghan especially looks like a new mummy. So blissed out.

    I don’t know which village idiot think she had a surrogate. Social media has made everyone nuts!

    That RR Tominey person is losing her sh!t. I hope she loses her job next. The Sussexes will carry out their charity work without need for the know it all invasive British RRs, who, like the courtiers were encouraged by the BRF to run the show. Now they are being schooled by a woman who demands to have privacy. The BRF should up its media game and stop encouraging the nonsense.

    I was never able to have any Rainbow Children…so BABIES JUST MAKE ME MELT!!!!!!!! ESPECIALLY THIS BABEE! I’m tearing up…and my EYELASHES WERE NOT MADE FOR THAT!

  57. Bunny says:

    Oh my golly! Such a handsome baby!

    Meghan looks absolutely stunning and beautiful!

    Harry looks so happy and proud, he could burst! I told my husband about what Harry said two days ago to the press. He commented on how proud he was to be a dad when our child was born, and how Harry must be, too. I think he’s right!

  58. CDubs says:

    As someone who gave birth 1.5 months ago, the first thing I noticed were her poor swollen feet stuffed in those heels! She had to be uncomfortable but looks beautiful and so happy. Two days postpartum I very much so looked and felt like I’d been hit by a bus…

    • Harla says:

      I think she’ll be back in yoga pants the minute they get back home!

    • Anastasia says:

      I was just coming home from the hospital two days after the birth (Army hospitals seem to let you stay a tiny bit longer) and was still in a nursing nightgown 24/7! I hadn’t worn makeup in weeks.

  59. Enn says:

    Cute little button! M&H look smitten.

  60. MellyMel says:

    He is the cutest little thing OMG!

  61. Sparker says:

    She looks exhausted and emotional, but well groomed. I’ll bet she hasn’t slept in weeks and probably was still up staring at the super cute kid while he slept through the last two days!

  62. Casey20 says:

    Beautiful baby and beautiful fami!y!!!

  63. Gem says:

    What a lovely family! I can’t wait to watch Baby Sussex grow and change.

  64. Casey20 says:

    The crazy British Media is going all out on Gayle King at the photo call…..just one problem she’s on her show, live and in person in NYC!

    • Peg says:

      And yet people believe the media, when they have proven over and over again they know nothing.
      Look for another story about the Queen scolding Meghan for wearing white 2 1/2 days after having a baby.

      • Anastasia says:

        What’s the issue with wearing white? I’ve seen this mentioned a few times here.

      • Harla says:

        Hi Anastasia, I think what people are referring too is that a woman bleeds quite a bit after giving birth so wearing white could be a bit tricky, you know leakage.

      • Becks1 says:

        @Anastasia – in case she bleeds through. Post partum women tend to bleed very heavily, hence the huge pads they send you home with from the hospital (at least mine did lol.) I had the same thought when Kate walked out with Charlotte in white – “eek!!!” They’re only in the dresses for a half hour probably tops, so I’m sure its NBD, but still, the post partum days were not pretty.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      Commentariat of The Daily Fail has been “ate up” for days talking about the $$$$ paid by Oprah to Megs & Harry to guarantee an exclusive to Gayle King/CBS. The same Gayle King/CBS comments copied and pasted on as many Daily Fail comment sections as possible. I mean this is so out there that it even shocked me and is beyond “Tinfoil Hat” conspiracies.

      • Casey20 says:

        British Media is saying CBS got an exclusive with the coup!e and baby. That Americans would see Gayle with Sussexs and baby… I watched CBS and the same footage was shown that the British have not to mention Gayle was upset because she couldn’t see the babies hair! Why the lies from the British media!!!

      • Jan says:

        LOL, so absurd, especially since Gayle was in NYC and back on the air first thing Monday morning.

  65. Peg says:

    Meghan is so funny, best two boys and Mom is here also, oh dear the Markles will go bonkers.
    Samantha is saying in the Dailyfail, that they extend an olive branch to Meghan now it’s her turn to extend one to them, and Meghan did, saying her mother is here.

    • Harla says:

      Samantha can pound sand. Olive branch extended, phef indeed!

    • Lady D says:

      I must have missed the abject apologies offered in that olive branch. Not to mention the assurances that this crap from her will never happen again? Olive branch sounds more like a dead stick infested with wood ticks.

    • noway says:

      It’s not a great comment from Samantha, but it’s better than I expected. I really thought she was going to go bonkers on how her father has been left out of the whole thing. Actually, most of her comment is pretty tame. Hopefully, that’s it and she won’t go further. Doubt it though.

  66. liriel says:

    You know what I love? the palace surrounding – so legal yet they look so normal. So beaming, happy and Meghan is still a bit fuller. It’s so refreshing!

  67. HeyThere! says:

    The first few weeks are mind blowing! You can’t believe you have this sweet, tiny baby! Ugh! Love it and they are so sweet. My husband and I would look at each other and go, “OH MY GOSH WE ARE PARENTS?!” Then laugh nonstop. Ha!

  68. Vanessa says:

    Meghan and Harry baby is adorable they both look so happy as for the royal reporters their bunch of idiots . Their behaviors towards Meghan and her son has been unhinged hatefully down right nasty the fact that some of them actively engage with some of the crazies on twitter proved that they have a real problem . Piers Morgan also needs to put on the fixed list because it’s clear he has a unhealthy obsession with Meghan .

  69. Lisa says:

    He is absolutely adorable. Can’t wait to hear the name.

  70. somelikeitpink says:

    He looks adorable.

    But am I the only one who thinks its weird when you ask parents of a kid thats not even a week old what the “temperament” of their baby is? It’s a baby… I mean really, especially when they are so little – unless its a crybaby, most babies just eat, sleep and poop and thats literally it.

    • Sparkly says:

      They just need a blurb for the headlines.

    • cait says:

      Good point – you are not the only one. Same with asking if a baby is a “good baby”. That one gets me. Seriously, a good baby? What could a baby possibly do that’s inherently bad?

  71. Sparkly says:

    YAY! Such a cute little face! I’m glad one of the reporters asked him to show the baby a little better. The whole time I was watching the video I was saying, “Just turn your arm a little! Turn him around! For god’s sake, did no one let him practice holding & moving a baby ahead of time?!” lol

    It was actually a couple days before we even realized my youngest had red hair. It looked really dark right after birth. I noticed that her hair had an orange glow to it when we sat near the window, and no one believed me. They thought it was wishful thinking since I love redheads, or that she had auburn highlights like my dark hair does in the sun. Once she was bathed up the next afternoon or so, after her hair finally dried and we saw her in full sun, everyone exclaimed “Look at all that red hair!” I was like, “Told you.”

  72. Isa says:

    She’s a bit wobbly and is walking funny after the birth. She’s absolutely glowing.
    I noticed she started to cup her belly and then remembered…it’s cute. The first few days feel odd since you’re used to the baby being inside of you.

    • noway says:

      Well she’s in heels. You know if they have another one and decide to do photo ops, let’s all send her some cool flats or comfort shoes. While I appreciate heels, you want to do something really radical, let women wear normal shoes after you had a baby.

      • Isa says:

        She never seemed to have issues being pregnant and walking in heels. I’ve fallen a few times this pregnancy so her gracefulness stands out to me. But she’s a bit wobbly now from the birth. Someone said she should’ve wore bunny slippers and I think that would’ve been cute and sweet. But of course, there would’ve been an uproar.

  73. Rina says:

    Aww. Baby is adorable.

  74. Margo Smith says:

    OH MY GOD SO CUTE!!! I can’t stop smiling. What a beautiful baby!

  75. Mandy says:

    What a precious, beautiful little family! *HAPPY TEARS*

  76. Liz says:

    Someone upthread mentioned Meghan looking a little pale and overwhelmed. It reminded me of something that happened with each of my 3 kids. About 48 hours after giving birth – almost to the hour – I burst into tears and cried for a long time, for no reason, and not feeling sad at all. It was the hormones changing from pregnant to nursing mother. I think this is probably a very emotional day for Meghan as well. So happy for all 3 of them!

    • Cleo17 says:

      The hormones totally freaked me out. Combined with the sleep deprivation – Gah! I had to pump every two hours to try to get enough supply and I still had to give my little one a bottle, so she could eat. I went on to Netflix, and my husband came upstairs to find me sobbing despairingly because Doctor Who was gone. An exact quote “I am never going to get any sleep again, but I thought I could at least watch the Doctor. Instead, all there is the $#%?ing Property Brothers!” Followed by more tears.

  77. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    Ahhh I can’t take the cuteness overload!

  78. K2Squared says:

    Precious! Can’t wait to hear what his name is.

  79. Hunter says:

    I loved Meghan’s comment about introducing him to family. I bet her relatives are pooping themselves right now. I have a feeling they will never really “get” the difference.

  80. LuvSpaghetti says:

    I would have never believed this had I not seen it with my own eyes but, I knew a married couple (wife was Latina with almost black hair and husband was Irish descent & bright red ginger) and their daughter had (I kid you not) PURPLE hair!!!! It was like a dark purpley-wine color. Completely unreal. I thought they dyed her hair, everyone did, but they would laugh and deny it. Their next 2 children…same thing!

    I’ve been secretly hoping that the polo baby is born with this beautiful phenomenon just to make his little star shine brighter! But I’m sure he’s beautiful either way!

  81. IlsaLund says:

    Beautiful…absolutely adorable. I’m so happy for them. Looking forward to hearing his name.

  82. Nicegirl says:

    Congratulations Sussexes!! 🖖🏽😉👶🏾🍼💕❤️🎉

  83. stephanie says:

    funny how she has a little british accent

    she looks glowing

    • Vanessa says:

      I watch the video she doesn’t have British accents at all she sounds the same as always .

  84. Chimney says:

    New pic on their instagram of the baby meeting the Queen, my heart can’t take it!

    Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor

  88. Rosenaus says:

    Archie means nobly and corageous
    Harrison = Harry‘s son

  89. original_kellybean says:

    I hadn’t seen “Suits” and I guess the only time I saw her speak was at her wedding where she spoke quietly. I was surprised at her voice. She has a great voice. But I guess that comes from acting and having to project.

  90. JRenee says:

    Just reading they named the baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor along with a picture of the Sussexes, The Queen, Prince Philip…and Dora.
    Oh my…

  91. Vinot says:

    A million blessings to the new family! I wish there wasn’t pressure on her to wear heels so soon, you can tell her ankles and hips are shaky when she’s walking, and if ever there was a time for flats or slippers, it’s late and post-pregnancy. Honks for the Sussexes and Polo Baby Archie!

    • teehee says:

      I think she could wear what she wants, but wants to be her usual posh self and a proud mother, which she is… so she chose pulled together. It was a short meeting so she could kick the shoes off the minute the door closed, I bet :D The photocall is the one going round the world so shoes for 5 minutes is worth it.

  92. paddingtonjr says:

    They are such a beautiful, happy couple! They are both just glowing and blissful (if a bit still dazed and sleep-deprived ;) ). I have feeling little Archie and Louis will be close cousins, getting into all sorts of trouble!

  93. phyllis says:

    Which reporter asked “Who does he look like?” To paraphrase someone on Lainey’s show The Social “Does he look black?? WTF.”

    • Trillian says:

      Really? All new parents get asked that question. I got it with both of mine and we’re not mixed.

  94. A says:

    I don’t know if this is weird to say, but she looks like she just gave birth two days ago. Kate looked really similar just after giving birth to George, when she’d come out for the photocall. Their faces were full, and their stomach still hadn’t gone down and you could see a definite rounded-ness to their figures. I dunno how to explain this without sounding like a full on creep, but it’s just…nice to see the reality. I’ll always wonder if the reason Kate stepped out looking so well put together after the birth of Charlotte and Louis was because she caught so much grief for looking as she did after the birth of George, and I’m so glad Meghan was able to do her photocall on her own terms.

    That baby is gorgeous. Harry is so in love, it’s so funny. He’s probably wanted this for so long, and he finally has a family of his own, and I bet he’s just over the fcking moon, haha.
