Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced they were expecting their second child on Valentine’s Day in 2021 after the Duchess of Sussex suffered a miscarriage last summer.
They shared the gender of their baby (a girl!) while speaking with Oprah during their big March interview.
And on June 6, the couple revealed through Archewell that they welcomed their daughter Lilibet on June 4.
Here’s everything we know so far, from the rare glimpses Meghan has given of her maternity style to reports about where the Duchess hopes to give birth to her daughter.
Meghan welcomed their daughter Lilibet on June 4. Meghan and Harry did not reveal their daughter’s exact date prior to her birth.
But two days after Meghan gave birth, they announced their baby girl’s name and birth details. Archewell wrote: 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.
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. Meghan and Harry added in a statement:
“On June 4th, 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.”
