On Sunday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle of the United Kingdom announced the birth of their second child, a girl.
Lilibet Diana was delivered Friday at California’s Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, weighing 7 pounds, 11 ounces, according to the couple.
“Both mother and child are healthy and well, and settling in at home,” a statement on the couple’s website said.
“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.”
Late Sunday, the official Twitter account of the royal family said: “Congratulations to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the birth of Lilibet Diana!
“The Queen, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted with the news. Lilibet is Her Majesty’s 11th great-grandchild.”
Diana was Harry’s mother, who died in a Paris car crash in 1997.
Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, married in 2018 and are the parents of a 2-year-old son named Archie.
In February, they announced that they were expecting their second child.
The pair announced in 2020 that they would be leaving the British royal family and relocating to North America.
Since relinquishing their royal duties, Harry has been working with media mogul Oprah Winfrey to raise awareness of mental-health concerns, while Markle is about to release a children’s book. They are also creating content for Netflix.
Following the death of his grandpa, Prince Philip, in April, Harry temporarily reconnected with his family in England. He was 99 years old.
