Prince Harrry And Meghan Markle Have Welcomed Their Second Child

Prince Harrry And Meghan Markle Have Welcomed Their Second Child

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have welcomed their baby daughter to the world.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have honoured the Queen and Princess Diana in the baby's name: Lilibet 'Lili' Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.

Their daughter - who is the couple's second child - was born at 11.40am on June 4 at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California, weighing 7lb 11oz (3.4kgs).

Lilibet was chosen because it's Queen Elizabeth II's nickname. Both mum and bub are doing well, according to the couple's press secretary.

A statement has been released, which said: "It is with great joy that Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, welcome their daughter, Lilibet 'Lili' Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, to the world.

"She weighed 7lbs 11oz. Both mother and child are healthy and well, and settling in at home.

"Lili is named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet.

"Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honour her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales.

"This is the second child for the couple, who also have a two-year-old son named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

"The Duke and Duchess thank you for your warm wishes and prayers as they enjoy this special time as a family."

The famous Royal couple announced back in February that they would soon be hearing the pitter-patter of little feet once again.

In that statement, they wrote: "We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child."

The happy news follows Meghan's devastating admission in November last year about having previously suffered a miscarriage.

In a first-person piece for the New York Times, she explained she had been looking after son Archie, who is now two, when she realised what was happening.

She wrote: "It was a July morning that began as ordinarily as any other day: Make breakfast. Feed the dogs. Take vitamins. Find that missing sock. Pick up the rogue crayon that rolled under the table. Throw my hair in a ponytail before getting my son from his crib.

"After changing his diaper, I felt a sharp cramp. I dropped to the floor with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm, the cheerful tune a stark contrast to my sense that something was not right.

"I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second."
