No hard feelings towards the royal family after all, huh? There are new reports that say Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are the new proud parents of their second child, a baby girl, who they named after both Queen Elizabeth and Princess Diana. Here’s what you need to know.
According to reports, Meghan gave birth on Friday at 11:40am at the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, Calif. Sources say that both mother and daughter are doing quite well and that they are now settling at home.
Meghan Markle Gives Birth: Names Baby After Queen Elizabeth And Princess Diana
“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,” Meghan and Harry announced in a statement Sunday. “Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family.”
The couple stated that they named their daughter Lilibeth Diana, after both Prince Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, and his mother, Princess Diana. ‘Lilibeth’ is the nickname that Prince Philip gave his wife Queen Elizabeth during their marriage and apparently was the only person who called her by this name.
So far Buckingham Palace has not made any comments about the birth of Harry and Meghan’s child, but it’s without a doubt that congratulatory statements will be seen on social media sooner rather than later.
But how the royals feel about the baby girl’s name though, remains to be seen. Seeing how Prince William isn’t seeing eye-to-eye with his brother Prince Harry nor with Meghan Markle right now, it will be interesting to see what his reaction will be knowing that they’ve named their daughter after his mother.
