It's been two days since Meghan Markle gave birth to her baby boy (opens in new tab) at an undisclosed hospital (she decided not to have a home birth (opens in new tab)). Understandably, the new mom has been laying low to take care of and enjoy her time with baby Sussex alongside Prince Harry, who is an adorably proud papa (opens in new tab). Since the royal birth occurred in private, Meghan did not pose with her baby outside of the Lindo Wing like Kate Middleton did with her three children. Instead, Meghan and Harry decided to host a photo-call two days after they've had some alone time.

For those who were hoping to catch a glimpse of the Duchess since she gave birth, she finally stepped out today at St. George's Hall at Windsor Castle. She wore a white trench dress originally thought to be Givenchy, but confirmed to be from British designer Grace Wales Bonner (opens in new tab) (you can shop a similar one here (opens in new tab) from Givenchy) and Manolo Blahnik pumps (opens in new tab). The ensemble was expected of the new mom as her style never drastically changed while she was pregnant. Meghan has always gravitated towards sophisticated pieces.

Baby Sussex also wore a stylish, statement-making look of his own. The new royal wore a cashmere hat  (opens in new tab)and was wrapped in a baby blanket (opens in new tab) from GH Hurt and Son—the same brand that made the blankets (opens in new tab) all three of the Cambridge children were in during their official photo-calls.

While Harry is set to fly out to the Netherlands on Thursday, Meghan has no publicly scheduled events on her calendar yet as she is on maternity leave. If she follows Kate's timeline (opens in new tab), Meghan likely will take a six-month maternity leave (opens in new tab) (or possibly even less). Kate, who gave birth to Prince Louis, back in April 2018, had shied away from the public eye to care for her third child, though did make pop-up appearances at Meghan and Harry's wedding (opens in new tab) and Trooping the Colour (opens in new tab).
