  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle finally introduce the as yet unnamed Baby Sussex to the world today, two days after he was born.

    The Duke and Duchess looked every inch the happy parents as they spoke to reporters and gushed about their ‘own little bundle of joy’.

    It was Meghan’s first appearance since giving birth (Harry had already stepped out on Monday), and she looked resplendent in a white belted tuxedo dress.

    When Kate Middleton first posed with Prince Louis last year, royal fans were quick to point out it was a subtle tribute to Princess Diana, and it seems that Meghan’s might also have a sentimental meaning behind it.

    She teamed her dress with suede Manolo Blahnik court shoes.
