Meghan and Prince Harry have welcomed their baby girl and they named her after her great-grandmother the Queen and her famous and much-loved grandmother, Diana Spencer.
The baby was born on Friday, June 4th, 2021.
“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,” the statement said.
“Lili was born on Friday, June 4 at 11:40 a.m. in the trusted care of the doctors and staff at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital,” it said. The statement also added that the new baby weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces (3.49 kilos) at birth and that “both mother and child are healthy and well, and settling in at home.”
Lilibeth is the younger sister to Archie, the couple’s two-year-old son.
“Lili is named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet. Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honor her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales,” the statement added.

“She is more than we could have ever imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we’ve felt from across the globe. Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family.”
Buckingham Palace also released a statement Sunday to mark Lili’s birth.
“The Queen, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been informed and are delighted with the news of the birth of a daughter for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex,” it read.
News of the baby was first announced in February when their photographer friend shared their pregnancy shot on social media, a photo he took remotely via his iPad.
The news came after Meghan had announced she suffered a miscarriage in July 2020.
Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the birth of their new bundle of joy.
