MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry have welcomed their second child into the world.
Baby Lilibet is a nod to a nickname for the Queen when she was young, while her middle name is an ode to Princes Diana – Harry’s mother.
The new arrival is the Queen’s 11th great-grandchild, joining big brother Archie and Prince William‘s kids George, Charlotte and Louis.
The couple said in a statement: “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 11:40 a.m. in the trusted care of the doctors and staff at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, CA. She weighed 7 lbs 11 oz (3.5kg). Both mother and child are healthy and well, and settling in at home.”
