As her husband held their son, Meghan added: “He has the sweetest temperament, he’s really calm.”
As they both laughed, Harry said: “I don’t know who he gets that from.”

Asked who Archie takes after, Meghan said: “We’re still trying to figure that out.”
Harry said: “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.”
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.”
Archie 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.
