The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have introduced baby Archie to the Queen, Prince Phillip and Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland. 

The Queen is the first member of the royal family to meet the new baby, whose full title is Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor. 

After introducing baby Archie to the world, the proud new parents then went to Windsor Castle to visit the 93-year-old monarch at Windsor Castle. 

The baby is seventh-in-line to the British throne and her eighth great-grandchild. 

Harry and Meghan introduced their two-day-old baby to the Queen, joined by Philip, in the castle’s private apartments. 

As the parents unveiled baby Archie this morning, the Queen braved the rain to enjoy the annual Royal Windsor Horse Show on the castle grounds. 

Asked about going to see the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, Meghan revealed how they had ‘bumped into’ Prince Philip en route to their press call.

Keep it chic like the Duchess of Sussex in a double-breasted dress by Wales Bonner

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.

Feeling inspired to copy Meghan’s new mum style? We love the dress/jacket hybrid design, and we’ve rounded up some similar alternatives below. Wear with nude pumps, or layer with some cropped culottes.

Prior to taking him to see his great-grandmother, Harry and Meghan were overcome with pride as they posed for photos with their ‘own little bundle of joy’ in St George’s Hall, at lunchtime today. 

New mother Meghan said she ‘cannot wait’ to share her son with their family. 

She said: ‘We just bumped into the duke as we were walking by which was so nice. 

‘So it’ll be a nice moment to introduce the baby to more family and my mum’s with us as well.’ 

The baby is seventh in line to the throne and the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh’s eighth great-grandchild and the Prince of Wales’s fourth grandchild. 

In a poignant Instagram post after unveiling baby Archie, the couple wrote: ‘Today The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to share their first public moment as a family. 

‘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.’

Her Majesty this morning attended one of her favourite events of the year, the Royal Windsor Horse Show which is taking place in the castle grounds. 

Despite the wind and rain, she beamed as she watched the horse show ahead of seeing her great-grandson. 

She was at the show as the new parents introduced Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor to the world. 

Speaking in St George’s Hall at Windsor Castle as her husband held their two-day-old child, Meghan said: ‘It’s magic, it’s pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world so I’m really happy.

‘He has the sweetest temperament, he’s really calm.’

The Queen was quizzed about the latest addition to the family on Tuesday by the former prime minister of Canada, Jean Chretien.

‘Life is good for Your Majesty?’ Mr Chretien asked. The smiling Queen replied: ‘Yes, thank you.’

‘Congratulations. Another great-grandchild!’ he added.

The Queen replied happily: ‘Yes, I know.’

She was then asked ‘How many of them have you got now?’ before replying ‘Eight’.

Mr Chretien quipped: ‘You beat me by one.’

‘But his looks are changing every single day, so who knows.’

Asked how he found parenting, Harry 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 and be able to spend some precious times with him as he slowly, slowly starts to grow up.’

Asked about going to see the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, Meghan said: ‘We just bumped into the duke as we were walking by which was so nice.

Buckingham Palace said on Monday that the Queen and the duke were ‘delighted’ to hear of the baby’s birth.

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor arrived at 5.26am on Monday, weighing 7lb 3oz, and is thought to have been born at the Portland Hospital in London, a plush US-owned hospital favoured by many wealthy American expats.

Meghan – who had been more than a week overdue – is believed to have gone into labour late on Sunday, when she was driven 28 miles away to a London hospital, ending her hopes of a home birth. 

The Prince of Wales has also spoken publicly for the first time about the birth, saying he was ‘delighted’ at arrival of his latest grandchild.

During an official visit to Germany with the Duchess of Cornwall, Charles said on Tuesday: ‘We couldn’t be more delighted at the news and we’re looking forward to meeting the baby when we return.’
