‘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,’ read a statement from the now family of four.
‘On June 4, we were blessed with the arrival of our daughter, Lili,’ the Sussex couple announced in a personal statement on their Archewell website. ‘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.’
Since the announcement of Lili’s arrival, the royal family appears to have extended an olive branch to the Sussex couple, posting messages and reportedly sending gifts.
This week, it was suggested that tensions between the Sussexes and the rest of the royals could be healing as it emerged that Harry and Meghan were hoping to christen Lili at Windsor Castle in front of the Queen this year.
‘Harry told several people that they want to have Lili christened at Windsor, just like her brother,’ disclosed a royal source via the Mail‘s Richard Eden. The source then went on to add that the couple were so keen to mark the special day with the Queen that they were ‘happy to wait until circumstances allow.’
Well, that’s lovely.
