Here is your first glimpse at Baby Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's newborn son.

Today has been a big day for the royal formerly known as Baby Sussex. He and his parents, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, shared their first public appearance as a family today. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also revealed his name, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. And he met his great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. That’s a lot for a baby who is only two days old, but is practice for his future serving the United Kingdom.

For her first public appearance as a mum, Meghan wore a white sleeveless trench-style dress and nude pumps. Prince Harry was decidedly dressed more formal than when he announced the birth of Archie on May 6th. He wore a grey suit, black tie, white shirt, and brown shoes. Both wore beaming smiles of joy.
