From experience, I have to say that generally babies with African-American heritage tend to be born with sparse to fairly generous hair on their heads. And the texture of hair usually changes over time, as it tends to happen for all babies.

Harry said the baby had a bit of facial hair. Couldn't see anything dark. Baby Sussex looks fairish more than anything. More like Harry, but I can see a Markle nose I think.

Are you really discussing racial questions here? Shame on you!
It‘s a baby, cute as any other, nothing special but still a miracle.

Was anyone else besides me scouring the little one's face for signs of freckles? It would be so cute if the baby had Harry's ginger hair and Meghan's freckles.

I think it's because Meghan is American, and they have generally always tried to acknowledge that fact. There were American touches during the wedding (although I could have done without Bishop Curry's rambling ), the gospel choir, albeit they were British with international roots from Africa to the Caribbean most likely. And don't forget that the wedding announcements consisted of American ink on British paper.

There's also rumors that the Sussexes may want their child to attend an American International school in England.

Better to adress the Elephant in the Room sooner than later, with, of course, utterly respect.
This little gem is the first bi-racial member of the BRF, we can't deny that. It must be celebrated as it should be, and, i think, openly and respectfully discussed as such.
For me it's a bit early to see any particular trait...

^^ As the baby grows, he probably will have freckles. He already appears to have olive-toned skin like Meghan's. The button nose looks like Meghan's too. I would imagine that the baby's hair will be wavy to curly, as he grows, since curly hair (which Meghan naturally has) is a dominant gene.

It's being reported that a royal source said Meghan gave birth at Portland Hospital. When/if the birth certificate is released, the place of birth should appear.

Right, but if the DM hadn’t gotten all pissy, no one would have even known an American journalist was in the room, so I wouldn’t say it counts as an acknowledgement.

Beautiful fruit of their love!

As for American accents; the town crier also said "God Bless America!"

The child is part African, and I think people are naturally looking for some African traits. This is not a negative.

My kids have freckles, but they didn't start to "pop" until they were older toddlers.

Such a happy moment!

Also, am I the only one more excited about seeing the new parents completely happy with their baby? I'm so sorry, but for me all newborns just look exactly the same...

And... at the end of Grandfather Thomas Markle's statement, he said "God Save The Queen".

This little guy is going to grow up in a global world especially with his parents focusing on the Commonwealth. He will grow up to appreciate diversity. He will grow up to realize that there's a need to give back and to help make the world a better place for everyone. He's going to grow up with two loving parents that will teach him by example.

This is one lucky little guy if you ask me. He's got quite a wonderful life ahead of him.

I agree that royal couples should first and foremost introduce their child to the public the way they see fit, and the Sussexes, especially Harry, look over the moon, but this approach leaves me cold and unimpressed. Windsor is very majestic and I like seeing the rooms but it seemed visually odd/incongruous to me to see the Sussexes walking through that cavernous hall and then stopping to be photographed and answer questions.

I totally respect that there are those who like how this was done, but I am not hankering to see other royals adopt this approach.

No he is not. The boy has African DNA. Him being Part African would mean Meghan was full African. The fact is she is a Bi racial person with African decent and little Earls Caucasian traits will almost certainly dominate.

Genetics do weird things. Just because the baby is only 1/4 black doesn't mean white traits will dominate.

Typically babies of mixed race can start out lighter then darken as they get older. I have a mixed race granddaughter who was very fair skinned (like her mother) that has gotten several shades darker now that she is 4 ...she has a half sister (father's side) that is lighter skinned and hair color ...just all depends on how the genetics lean.

The baby will likely be very attractive because both of his parents are.
