The couple have named their first daughter after the Duke of Sussex’s grandmother, the Queen, who is called Lilibet by members of the Royal Family.

Lilibet’s middle name is Diana, in honour of her ‘beloved great-grandmother,’ the Princess of Wales.

In a statement on the Duke and Duchess’ Archewell website, they stated: “On June 4, we were blessed with the arrival of our daughter, Lili.

“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.

“Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family.”

Lilibet is the Queen’s eleventh great-grandchild and is eighth in line to the throne.
