The world has been waiting for a glimpse of the newest member of the Royal Family, but of course we want to see the proud new parents too!

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex introduced their newborn son at Windsor Castle today, and they looked positively glowing with pride.

We all remember the Jenny Packham dresses that the Duchess of Cambridge wore when leaving the hospital with each of her three children, and we’re certainly going to remember this beautiful look on Meghan.

She teamed a belted white double breasted midi dress by Wales Bonner, with her Jennifer Meyer turquoise necklace and some nude suede court shoes by Manolo Blahnik.

British designer Grace Wales Bonner’s pieces are all about clever tailoring, which explains the tuxedo detail on this elegant midi.

‘They are so incredibly grateful for the warm wishes and support they’ve received from everyone around the world, since welcoming their son two days ago.’

The post has already been liked over 160 times and has over 3,000 comments. 

The photos were taken separately to a official media call earlier this afternoon and were taken by former soldier Chris Allerton, who also captured the stunning photo the pair shared on their official Christmas card.

Pictures that were released to the media earlier today through the Press Association had been taken by Dominic Lipinski. 

The first picture was a full length colour snap of the couple, which shows them walking out of the doors, Harry carrying the newborn and Meghan gently placing her hand on the back of his arm.

Last but not least, in homage to their wedding photos, Harry and Meghan struck a similar pose, the two of them walking down the hall, with their backs facing the camera, with Meghan looking up at Harry. 

Photographer and former soldier Chris Allerton took the shots earlier today. Allerton is said to have developed his first roll of film at just eight years old and according to his website ‘has been hooked on photography since’.

Allerton left the British Army in 2001 and went on to Lichfield Studios in Notting Hill.
