Prince Harry and Meghan announce birth of baby girl

Her middle name is in honour of her grandmother, Harry's mother Princess Diana.

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

The Sussexes' newborn daughter is the 11th great-grandchild for Queen Elizabeth and the fifth grandchild for Prince Charles.

"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".

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have welcomed their second child.

The official Royal Family Twitter account tweeted: 'Congratulations to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the birth of Lilibet Diana!

Well, the couple explained in their official statement to Access Hollywood that it's the personal nickname of Queen Elizabeth II, but the truth is royal-watchers should know that close members of the royal family have been calling Queen Elizabeth that for years!

Buckingham Palace said the allegations of racism made by the couple were "concerning" and would be addressed privately.

The baby is the first baby born to the royal family since the death of Prince Philip in April at the age of 99.

WATCH | What are the consequences of Meghan and Harry's interview?

Unlike with their son Archie who was born in 2019 the couple Harry have not yet released a photo of their daughter.

Winfrey and Harry on mental illness have recently collaborated on the Apple TV+ mental health series "The Me You Can't See".

Harry and American actor Meghan Markle married at Windsor Castle in May 2018.

Harry and Meghan moved to California previous year after stepping down from their roles as senior working members of Britain's royal family.

Meghan, a California native, gave birth to Archie in a London hospital near the Sussexes' home in Windsor, England, where they lived at the time. More than the "prince" title, she said she was most concerned about her son's safety and protection.

Prince Charles is rumoured to have plans to "streamline" the monarchy when he takes the throne, says Angela Levin, royal biographer and author of Harry: Conversations with the Prince.

"For example, the two children of the Queen's youngest son, Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, are eligible to have the titles of His or Her Royal Highness but they are instead styled as the children of an Earl-Lady Louise and James, Viscount Severn-rather than holding royal titles".

Harry and Meghan's departure from royal duties began in March 2020 over what they described as the intrusions and racist attitudes of the British media toward the duchess.
