Meghan added, "I have the two best guys in the world so I'm really happy.

"He's just been the dream so it's been a special couple of days. He has the sweetest temperament."

Prince Harry, who was holding his son, joked, "I don't know who he gets that from."

Asked who the baby takes after, Meghan said the couple were still trying to work it out.

Harry added, "Everyone says that babies change so much over two weeks. We're basically monitoring how the changing process happens over this next month really. But his looks are changing every single day, so who knows."

When asked how he was finding parenting, Harry commented, "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."

Meghan said, "Thank you everybody for all the well wishes and kindness, it just means so much."
