Congratulations to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, as they have finally welcomed their baby girl into the world!

The new arrival’s name has already been revealed – Lilibet "Lili" Diana Mountbatten-Windsor – and we’re delighted to see that both Prince Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, as well as his late mother, Princess Diana, have been honored.

Lilibet was Queen Elizabeth’s childhood nickname, which was affectionately given to her by her grandfather, King George V, when she was a toddler, as she couldn’t pronounce her full name.

The name has reportedly stuck ever since, and it’s believed that her late husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, still called her by that name.

According to reports, baby Lilibet was born at 11:40am in a hospital in Santa Barbara, California, on Friday June 4 2021, weighing 7 lbs 11oz.

Harry and Meghan – who are also parents to two-year-old son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor – issued a statement on their Archewell website to announce the birth of their new addition…

“On June 4, we were blessed with the arrival of our daughter, Lili,” read the couple’s statement.

"She is more than we could have ever imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we've felt from across the globe.

"Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family."

Several members of the royal family – including Harry’s father, Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales, and older brother, Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge – took to social media to congratulate the couple…

"Congratulations to Harry, Meghan and Archie on the arrival of baby Lilibet Diana. Wishing them all well at this special time,” The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall wrote on Twitter.

“We are all delighted by the happy news of the arrival of baby Lili,” added the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Lilibet is the Queen's 11th great-grandchild and is now eighth in line to the throne.

Congratulations to the now family of four!
