When was Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s daughter born?
The official registered time for the birth was at 11.40am.
However, they waited until Sunday June 6 to share the happy news at around 5pm.
The statement read: “On June 4th, 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.”
What is Lilibet’s full name?
Her full name is Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.
Baby Lilibet is a nod to a nickname for the Queen when she was young, while her middle name is an ode to Princes Diana – Harry’s mother.
Lilibet means “God’s promise.”
The new arrival is the Queen’s 11th great-grandchild, joining big brother Archie and Prince William’s kids George, Charlotte and Louis.

Where was Lilibet born?
This comes after it was previously reported Meghan was planning a home birth at her luxury LA mansion.
The Duchess of Sussex was initially said to be planning to deliver her daughter at home in the early summer.
But their daughter was born at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital instead – as Meghan seemed to ditch the idea to have a home birth.
She is also the first royal to be born in the US.
What was her weight?
A statement confirmed that the baby girl weighed 7lbs 11oz.
The average weight for a baby born in the UK is 7lb 8oz for boys and for girls 7lb 4oz.
This would put Lilibet slightly above the national average.
