Baby Sussex was introduced to the world today, lovingly cradled not by his mom Duchess Meghan but by his adoring father Prince Harry. This daddy pose actually doesn’t break new ground, as Prince Charles held Prince Williams in an official photo shortly after his birth. We all know that Prince Harry will break new norms in parenting, but it’s important to keep the facts straight.
The beaming couple touched two themes strongly. First, their own adoration of each other sends hopeful joy into the universe. Meghan’s affectionate body language was on full display, cementing the threesome in unity. Some have charactericized this gesture as deference and insecurity on Meghan’s part. AOC sees it as a sign of female confidence and directed, female power, so go figure.
