Prince Harry and Meghan announce the birth of baby girl named Diana, Harry’s mother and Queen Lilibet.
Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born on Friday morning in a hospital in Santa Barbara, California.
Lilibet was born at 11:40 am local time, weighed 7 lbs 11oz and is now “settling in at home”.
She is the Queen’s 11th great-grandchild and is eighth in line to the throne. It means Prince Andrew, who was born second in line in 1960, moves down to ninth place.
Both mother and child are healthy and well, the couple said in a statement on their website.
Prince Harry and Meghan said they named their second child Lilibet after the Royal Family’s nickname for the Queen, the baby’s great-grandmother.
Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honour her “beloved late grandmother”, the Princess of Wales, the statement said.
