Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have welcomed their second child, a baby girl.
Meghan, Britain’s Duchess of Sussex and husband Prince Harry have named the baby after Queen Elizabeth and his late mother Princess Diana.
Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born on Friday at the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California, with Harry in attendance. The couple said in a statement:
On June 4th, we were blessed with the arrival of our daughter, Lili. 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.
The royal baby is eighth in line to the British throne after Archie, who became seventh in line upon his birth on May 6, 2019.
She is the younger cousin of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louise, and Queen Elizabeth’s 11th great-grandchild.
