Lili was born on Friday, June 4 at 11:40 am at the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, California. Harry and Meghan’s daughter weighed 7 lbs 11 oz and both mother and child are healthy and well. They are now settling in at home with Lili’s proud dad, Harry.

The couple’s Instagram statement noted that Lili is Prince Harry and Meghan’s second child. She joins her older brother, two-year-old Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. The Sussexes said she is “more than we could ever have imagined.”

Meanwhile, they remain grateful for the love and prayers they have felt from across the globe. Prince Harry and Meghan thanked everyone for their continued kindness and support during this very special time for their family. Moreover, the couple urged anyone who wishes to send gifts to “support or learn more about” organizations working for women and girls.

How did Lili get her name?

Harry and Meghan’s newborn daughter, Lili, is named after her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. She has received Her Majesty’s family nickname of Lilibet, while her middle name, Diana, honors her beloved late grandmother, Princess Diana.

According to a statement from Buckingham Palace, the Queen, Prince Charles and Camilla, as well as Prince William and Kate are delighted to hear the news. Lilibet is the Queen’s 11th great-grandchild and is eight in line to the throne. This means that the Queen’s second son, Prince Andrew, now moves down to the ninth place.

Prince Harry’s father, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla tweeted congratulations on the arrival of baby Lilibet Diana. The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwell wrote, “Wishing them all well at this special time.”

Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate Middleton send a tweet, writing “We are all delighted by the happy news of the arrival of baby Lili.”

Meghan Markle’s friend, Misan Harriman tweeted his congratulations, sharing the black-and-white photo he took of their pregnancy announcement.

He wrote, “Lilibet has arrived! Congratulations to my brave friend and her lovely family!”

‘Most royal name’

Former royal editor for the Sun newspaper, Duncan Larcombe, said he thought the name was the “most royal name you could give.” The BBC quotes him as saying the choice of Lili’s name is the first significant olive branch that Harry and Meghan have offered to the British Royal Family since stepping down.
