Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their daughter on June 4th. Here’s what we know so far about the upcoming birth, including the baby’s name and the events surrounding it.
From the bombshells revealed on Oprah With Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special to the subsequent responses from the royal family, there appears to be no end in sight to the royal news right now.
The arrival of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s second child, however, is one of the most upbeat stories. What little we do know is detailed below.
Is Meghan Markle Pregnant Again?
According to an official statement released on June 6, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their daughter into the world on Friday, June 4, at 11:40 a.m. Weight: seven pounds 11 oz. It was also revealed what name Meghan and Harry chose for their child.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to announce the birth of their daughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, according to a statement. Her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, is known as Lilibet. As a result, the baby girl was given the name Lili, and the middle name Diana was given in honour of the late Princess of Wales.
“The Duke and Duchess thank you for your warm thoughts and prayers as they enjoy this precious time as a family,” the spokesperson said, adding, “Both mother and child are healthy and well and settling in at home.”
Who Announced The Pregnancy?
Meghan, 39, and Harry, 36, announced their pregnancy on Valentine’s Day, February 14, with a sweet photo. Misan Harriman, an old friend in London, took the photo of the couple from Santa Barbara, California, using an iPad from a distance.
The Duchess is wearing a Carolina Herrera dress designed by Wes Gordon for her during her pregnancy with the couple’s first child, Archie, who was born in May 2019. On Valentine’s Day in 1984, Princess Diana made the joyful and meaningful announcement that she was expecting Harry.
The Due Date for Meghan Markle
Since Harry and Meghan announced their pregnancy on February 14, the world has been wondering when they can expect the new arrival. Meghan Markle revealed to Oprah that she will have a child in the summer of 2021.
Is it A Boy or A Girl?
Oprah asked Meghan, who is originally from California if she and Prince Harry were expecting a boy or a girl, and she said they were expecting a girl. When a pink sapphire ring was spotted on the Duchess’ finger in late February, fans and followers began to speculate.
