Her words come after her and Prince William's Instagram account sent the couple well wishes.

"We are all delighted by the happy news of the arrival of baby Lili," their post read. "Congratulations to Harry, Meghan and Archie."

It was also reported that Kate and the family sent the newborn a gift.

"Meghan is now resting at home and she and Harry have already introduced the Queen to her great granddaughter via Zoom," an insider exclusively spilled to The Royal Observer. "Since the couple moved to L.A., the Queen has become very familiar with Zoom. She talks to Harry, Meghan and Archie via technology, and now she is using it to meet her great-granddaughter. She is a very modern grandmother."

"This is the beginning of a new chapter within the family that will hopefully heal old wounds. Finally, there is hope that the family can reunite," the insider continued. "No one knew it at the time, but when Archie was born, Harry and Meghan were so angry with the family that they wanted nothing to do with them moving forward. That is why they broke all traditions and went with a totally new royal name. Now things have changed and they both very much want their daughter to be part of the family, which is why they chose the name Lilibet, the Queen’s childhood nickname."
