Baby bliss! Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their daughter, Lilibet Diana, on June 4, and they are already over the moon.
“Lili is more perfect than Harry and Meghan could ever imagine,” a source dished to Us Weekly. “They are so in love with her, and she’s absolutely beautiful. She’s a cross between Harry and Meghan.”
On June 6, the pair announced the exciting news via their Archewell website. "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," they wrote.
"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," the statement continued. "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."
Shortly after bringing their new tot home, Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, immediately wanted to show her off to Queen Elizabeth.
“Meghan is now resting at home and she and Harry have already introduced the Queen to her great granddaughter via Zoom,” an insider exclusively told 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 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,” added an insider. “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.”
