(WFLA) – Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their first public appearance with their son, two days after welcoming the new addition to the royal family.

The couple stood in front of reporters at George’s Hall in Windsor Castle and Harry held their newborn in his arms.

“It’s magic. It’s pretty amazing. I have the best two guys in the world, so I’m really happy,” Markle said of being a new mother.

She said her child “has the sweetest temperament. He’s really calm.”

“I don’t know where he gets that from!” Harry added.

“He’s just been a dream,” Markle said. “It’s been a special couple of days.”
