Meghan Markle has given birth to a daughter on Friday who she and Prince Harry have named Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.
The duke and duchess’ second child was born at 11:40am at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, and is now ‘settling in at home’, Harry and Meghan said.
The daughter has been named Lilibet after the family nickname for the Queen, the baby’s great-grandmother, while her middle name was chosen to honour her beloved late grandmother, the Princess of Wales, the couple said.
Their press secretary said: ‘The Duke and Duchess thank you for your warm wishes and prayers as they enjoy this special time as a family.’
