Inside Harry & Meghan’s Intimate Photocall with their son

Harper’s Bazaar is sharing some behind the scenes info on today’s lovely photocall at St. George’s Hall, Windsor Castle.

Before the world had seen his face or knew his name, Baby Sussex quickly became the most famous newborn on the planet. The son of the Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, and the first biracial baby born into the Windsor family, had quite the welcome party in Windsor after his arrival on May 6, with well-wishers filling the town’s streets and the world’s press camped out in eager anticipation of details about the newest member of the royal family.

And now, two days after his birth at Portland Hospital in central London, Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry’s firstborn has made his global debut at Windsor Castle. During an intimate media call—just two photographers, one agency reporter, and three video cameras present—the Sussexes proudly shared a first look at their family of three.

As the Duke and Duchess of Sussex walked into St. George’s Hall, where they celebrated their wedding reception nearly one year ago, camera shutters clicked away to capture the newborn royal, wrapped in the G.H. Hurt & Son shawl traditionally worn by royal babies (Prince George, Prince Charlotte, and Prince Louis all wore similar pieces for their debuts). Chris Allerton, the couple’s wedding party photographer, was there to take photos, which were later shared to the @sussexroyal Instagram account.

“This was a very special moment for the couple—one they won’t forget.”

After posing for photos, the Duchess got candid about the “magic” of motherhood, telling the cameras, “I have the two best guys in the world, and so I am really happy.” She noted her son has the “sweetest temperament.”

Prince Harry, his arms wrapped tightly around his son, looked on proudly. When asked who Baby Sussex looks like, he noted, “Everyone says babies change so much over two weeks, so we’re basically monitoring how this changing process happens over the next month, really. But his looks are changing every single day.” Meghan added that the family ran into the Duke of Edinburgh on their way to meet the cameras, but would soon be paying a visit to the queen.

“They are so proud but probably quite relieved to have gotten the photos out the way … They’re rather tired!”
