Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markel announced the birth of their baby this Sunday, a girl they call Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, Queen Elizabeth II’s first great-grandson, who was born outside the UK.
“Lili” was born on Friday in California and is named after her great-grandmother, the Queen, who is called Lilibet by her family, and her grandmother Diana of Wales.
“We are delighted to announce that Prince Harry and Meghan, Duke and Duchess of Sussex, will welcome their daughter Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor into the world,” said an official statement.
‘Lili’ was born on Friday, June 4th at 11:40 am under the care of doctors and confidants at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, California. “He weighed 7 pounds and 11 ounces (3.5 kilograms). Both the mother and girl are safe and sound and are already home,” they added.
This is the couple’s second child after Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, born in May 2019. Three months ago, the couple gave an explosive interview to Oprah Winfrey denouncing the media’s treatment and their own family, who were accused of racism, because he was interested in Archie’s skin color before he was born, as Markle has African American ancestry.
