Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcome second child

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have welcomed their second child.

A spokesperson for Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan has confirmed the arrival of their daughter, who they welcomed into the world on June 4 and they have chosen to name her Lilibet Diana.

They said in a statement: "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.Lili was born on Friday, June 4 at 11:40 a.m. in the trusted care of the doctors and staff at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. Both mother and child are healthy and well, and settling in at home."

Harry and Meghan - who also have Archie, two, together - named their little one, who weighed seven pounds and 11 ounces, after Harry's late mother Princess Diana and his grandmother Queen Elizabeth.

The couple added in a statement released through their spokesperson: "Lili is named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet. Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honour her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales."

Meghan - who was known as Meghan Markle before marrying the flame-haired royal - previously spoke out about her joy that she and Harry were expecting a little girl.

She said: "My husband and I are thrilled to soon be welcoming a daughter - it's a feeling of joy we share with millions of other families around the world. When we think of her, we think of all the young women and girls around the globe who must be given the ability and support to lead us forward," she said. "Their future leadership depends on the decisions we make, and the actions we take now to set them up, and set all of us up, for a successful, equitable, and compassionate tomorrow."
