The Duchess of Sussex has given birth to a daughter on Friday, June 04.
Prince Harry reportedly named his new baby, Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor after the monarch and the duke’s mother, who died in 1997.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s second child, sister to two-year-old Archie, was born at 11:40am at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, and is now ‘settling in at home.
According to the couple, the baby has been named Lilibet after the family nickname for the Queen, the baby’s great-grandmother, while her middle name was chosen to honour her beloved late grandmother, Princess Diana.
The new baby is the Queen’s 11th great-grandchild – poignantly the first of the monarch and Philip’s great-grandchildren to be born since the death of the duke in April.
But with the Sussexes living in California and amid troubled relationships with the Royal Family, it is not known when or if the new addition will meet the monarch and the rest of the royals.
A statement from their press secretary said:
‘It is with great joy that Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, welcome their daughter, Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, to the world.
‘Lili was born on Friday, June 4 at 11.40am in the trusted care of the doctors and staff at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, California. She weighed 7lbs 11oz. Both mother and child are healthy and well, and settling in at home.
‘Lili is named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet. Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honour her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales.
