Prince Harry and Meghan Markle today announced the birth of their little girl.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also announced their names in a touching post.
They said they decided to call her Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana, it was confirmed.
Lilibet is the queen’s nickname, and the newcomer is her eleventh great-grandson.
Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born on Friday at 11:40 am in a hospital in Santa Barbara, California.
Both mother and child are healthy and well, the couple said in a message.
Now she settles down to family life with her older brother Archie in California.
The daughter of Harry and Meghan is the eighth in line to the throne – and the most senior in the current succession, who was born abroad.
The baby at this point has no right to be an HRH or a princess based on the rules established by George V.
George V stated that the monarch’s great-grandchildren would no longer be princes or princesses, with the exception of the eldest son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales.
However, she can become a lady. “
