Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their second child – a baby girl on Friday.
In a statement released on their official website ‘Archewell’ on Sunday, June 6, 2021.
the statement reads “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.
“Lili was born on Friday, June 4 at 11:40 a.m. in the trusted care of the doctors and staff at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, CA. She weighed 7 lbs 11 oz. 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 honor her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales.”
Meghan and Harry announced their pregnancy news on Valentine’s Day.
“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.”
“Speaking about the arrival of baby girl, Harry had earlier said, ‘Grateful, having any child, any one or a two would have been amazing, but to have a boy and then a girl . . . now we’ve got our family and we’ve got four of us.”
The news was shared after Meghan revealed that she suffered a miscarriage last July. In an essay in New York Times, she wrote, “Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few.”
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got married in 2018 at a star-studded wedding held in England. They welcomed their first child, Archie back in 2019.
