The birth has been announced of the baby girl of Prince Harry and Meghan,the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
The little girl named Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born on Friday morning in a hospital in Santa Barbara, California and weighed 7 lbs 11oz. Both mother and child are said to be in good health.
The statement from 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.”
The little girl’s name,Lilibet,according to her parents was coined 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.
In a message released by the baby girl’s parents on their Archewell website, they said: “On June 4, we were blessed with the arrival of our daughter, Lili.
“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.”
The message adds that anyone wishing to send gifts is asked to “support or learn more about” organisations working for women and girls.
They have not released any photos of their daughter.
