The Suits alum and her husband stepped out with their infant in Windsor Castle on May 8, posing for pics and gushing about their little guy.

He’s been the dream, so it’s been a special couple of days,” the Los Angeles native told members of the press. “He has the sweetest temperament. He’s really calm. … [Motherhood is] pretty amazing and I have the two best guys in the world, so I’m really happy.”

The newborn’s name, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, was announced later that day. His first name pays a special significance to Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana, who had an ancestor named Archibald Campbell, 9th Early of Argyll, from Scotland.
