The couple’s official Instagram account posted two photos: One with the extended family, include Prince William and Duchess Kate, and a black-and-white portrait of the family of three. “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son. They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment,” the caption read.

The ceremony took place at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, marking yet another major milestone that the Duke, 34, and Duchess of Sussex, 37, have celebrated there. Not only did the royal pair get married in the same location in May 2018, but Harry was baptized in the very same location in 1984.
