“It’s been the most amazing experience I could ever possibly imagine,” Harry told reporters of fatherhood hours after the baby’s May 6 arrival. “How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension. But we’re both absolutely thrilled and so grateful to all the love and support from everybody out there. It’s been amazing, so we just wanted to share this with everybody.”

“Everyone says babies change so much over two weeks,” Harry said. “We’re basically monitoring how the changing process happens over this next month really. His looks are changing every single day so who knows [who he looks like].”

The new parents shared a sweet photo of Archie from his private christening in July at Queen Elizabeth’s private chapel at Windsor Castle. The new parents chose the location because they “wanted an intimate, peaceful setting in a place with such a special connection to Her Majesty,” a royal source told PEOPLE.

The gathering was attended by around 25 close family members and friends, including Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland as well as Prince William and Kate Middleton. Also in attendance were Princess Diana’s sisters Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes.

“She was doting on him, there’s no doubt about that,” an onlooker told PEOPLE. “She was kissing and stroking him and bouncing him up and down.”

Christmas cutie! Archie, 19 months, starred in the family’s 2020 Christmas card, technically an illustration of a photo taken by Meghan’s mom, Doria Ragland, and released through Mayhew, Meghan’s animal welfare organization patronage in the U.K.

“The original photo of the family was taken at their home earlier this month by The Duchess’s mother,” a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said. “The small Christmas tree, including the homemade ornaments and other decorations, were selected by Archie, and the tree will be replanted after the holidays.”

The card offered a glimpse of Meghan and Harry’s dogs Pula and Guy, plus their backyard — and Archie’s special playhouse!

“Archie is really happy, and he has space to run free,” a source previously told PEOPLE. “The house came with a play structure that he’ll be climbing in no time.”
