Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have introduced their newborn baby, Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana to the Queen … Queen Elizabeth II.
On Friday, June 4, 2021l, at exactly 11:40 AM at the Santa Babara Cottage Hospital in Caifornia, the royal couples welcomed their baby girl.
The Royal Family took to Twitter to congratulate the couple and welcome Diana.
Congratulations to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the birth of Lilibet Diana! The Queen, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted with the news.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were “very excited and could not wait to share that their daughter arrived” and introduced her via video call to Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II. It is not confirmed when Lilibet will meet the Queen but the Sussexes will most likely travel back to the UK in June 2022 for the Platinum Jubilee, which will mark the Queen’s 70th year on the throne.
Lilibet Diana’s middle name was selected to honour the Duke’s late mother, Princess Diana.
However, it also serves as a loving tribute to Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, who nicknamed her “flower” growing up.
