At last, the newest royal baby has arrived. And at last, we have photos!
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex posed for photos with their tiny, newborn son in St. George's Hall at Windsor Castle on Wednesday morning, two days after the baby was born.
Naturally, the new parents are in love with their first child, whom they later revealed was named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
"It's magic, it's pretty amazing," said Meghan. "I have the two best guys in the world so I'm really happy. He has the sweetest temperament, he's really calm."
"I don't know who he gets that from," Harry said, before his wife added, "He's just been the dream, so it's been a special couple of days."
"Everyone says that babies change so much over two weeks, we're basically monitoring how the changing process happens over this next month really," said Harry. "But his looks are changing every single day, so who knows."
When asked how he was finding being a dad, Harry said, "It's great. Parenting is amazing. It's only been two and a half days, three days, but we're just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy."
The couple is already learning how quickly babies grow up.
"Everyone says that babies change so much over two weeks," Harry said. "We're basically monitoring how the changing process happens over this next month really. But his looks are changing every single day, so who knows."
When asked how he was finding being a dad, he added,"It's great. Parenting is amazing. It's only been two and a half days, three days, but we're just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy."
The littlest royal is getting ready to meet family, the couple said.
"We just bumped into the duke as we were walking by which was so nice," Meghan said. "So it'll be a nice moment to introduce the baby to more family, and my mum's with us as well."

The couple were asked to show more of their son's face to the cameras. Harry joked that "he's already got a little bit of facial hair as well, wonderful."
Meghan and Harry were said to be beside themselves with joy, giggling and looking into each others' eyes as they spoke. Harry gently cradled his son in his arms and couldn't resist sneaking a peek down at him as he slept. "Thank you, everybody, for all the well wishes and kindness, it just means so much," Meghan added.
The first photos follow the couple's non-photo announcement via their Instagram account Monday that they welcomed a baby boy early that morning.
And although many hoped for a glimpse of the littlest Sussex that day, mother and baby did not do a public appearance following the birth. Instead, Harry emerged solo shortly after the announcement to speak to media, saying he was "over the moon" and couldn't comprehend how women do what they do in childbirth.

Royals fans have been waiting for months for this little bundle of joy to make an appearance. Kensington Palace announced Meghan was pregnant last October and shared that she was due in the spring. At the time of the announcement, Prince Harry and Markle were on their first official royal tour together of Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji.
As spring rolled around and the big day drew near, the couple dropped a bit of a bombshell: they had decided to keep plans around their first baby's arrival private.
That meant that Harry and Meghan would not pose for photographers and TV crews on the hospital steps with their newborn. The Sussexes broke with the royal tradition followed by Harry's brother, Prince William and his wife Kate, the duchess of Cambridge, when she gave birth to their three children.
Prince Harry, who is sixth in the line of succession, has more leeway in terms of what he's expected to follow regarding royal protocol.
A growing family album
Royal fans have had lots of baby photos to pore over in the past few years, thanks to Will and Kate.
The Cambridges welcomed their first child, Prince George, on July 22, 2013, and Kate made her first public appearance seven hours after delivering their baby boy.
And four years ago, a few days before May 6, The Duchess gave birth to Princess Charlotte. Again, the couple were photographed leaving St. Mary's Hospital on May 2, this time with their baby girl in their arms.
Then, on April 23 last year, they welcomed their second baby boy, Prince Louis Arthur Charles.

Welcome, Archie Harrison! We look forward to many more photos in the future.
