Prince Harry and Meghan announce birth of baby girl
Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born on Friday morning in a hospital in Santa Barbara, California.
Both mother and child are healthy and well, the couple said in a statement.
Buckingham Palace said: “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.”
Prince Harry and Meghan said they named their second child Lilibet after the Royal Family’s nickname for the Queen, the baby’s great-grandmother.
Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honour her “beloved late grandmother”, the Princess of Wales, the statement said.
Lilibet was born at 11:40 am local time, weighed 7 lbs 11oz and is now “settling in at home”.
