Lilibet "Lili" Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born at 11:40 am PDT on Friday morning in Santa Barbara, California, the couple announced on their website.

Despite being seventh-in-line to the British throne, the Sussex's firstborn, two-year-old Archie, does not have a title.

A Buckingham Palace spokesperson said: 'The Queen, The Prince of Wales & The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge have been informed & are delighted with the news of the birth of a daughter for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex'.

They have been receiving backlash for their explosive interview with US TV host Oprah Winfrey in March this year.

Unlike with their son Archie who was born in 2019 the couple Harry have not yet released a photo of their daughter.

One of those occasions was for a pre-recorded message from Meghan for the recent Vax Live concert in May, which she and Harry co-chaired. "She is more than we could have ever imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we've felt from across the globe", Harry and Meghan said in a statement. The nickname was given by the close family to the Queen when she was a child.

"Now we've got our family", he said. The duo just announced that they recently welcomed their second child and first daughter together!

The pregnancy announcement came less than three months after Meghan opened up in a New York Times op-ed about a pregnancy loss the couple suffered last summer.

Their newborn daughter is entitled to be a Lady from birth, but will likely not use the title, instead using the name (first name) Mountbatten-Windsor.

They are: the current monarch's children, any grandchildren born to the monarch's sons and the children of the eldest son of the heir apparent.

Neither of the Sussex children is now eligible to use HRH titles, following the rules set out by George V in the 1917 Letters Patent.

That all might change when Prince Charles takes the throne.

As for the question of whether Archie and his baby sister will be joined by more siblings in the future, that doesn't seem to be on the cards right now.

"Prince Charles has wanted for a very long time to cut the monarchy down to save costs and to make people be worth the money that they get from the taxpayer", she told United Kingdom broadcaster talkRadio in April.

Harry and Meghan were married in a lavish wedding at St. George's Chapel in Windsor, England, three years ago.
