“Lilly was born on Friday, June 4, at 11:40 a.m., under the trusted supervision and care of doctors and staff at Santa Barbara Hospital, California,” the statement added.
The newborn weighs 7 pounds and 11 ounces (3.2 kilograms), and the mother and child are in good health, after returning home.
The statement indicated that the newborn was named Lily after her great-grandmother “Lilibet”, and her middle name was chosen, Diana, to honor her late grandmother, the Duchess of Wales.
This is the couple’s second child, after their two-year-old son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
In February, the couple celebrated Valentine’s Day and announced that Meghan was pregnant, saying: “We can confirm Archie will be a big brother, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are thrilled to announce the expectation of their second child.”
Why do royal families give their children compound names?
According to The Independent, it is a royal custom to honor the affair of the family, with parents choosing at least 3 names, and children born into the royal family are usually given multiple names at birth that go back to the grandparents, and among the names is the main name of the newborn.
Many royal children do not have a title like most members of the royal family, and royal children do not usually have a title. However, there are some exceptions, as in the case of Harry and Meghan’s son (Archie) who received the last name “Mountbatten Winsor”, the name used by family members when a surname is needed.
The daughter of Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton was named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, their eldest son bears the name of his grandparents within his compound name “George Alexander Louis” and their youngest son is Louis Arthur Charles.
No more children
During their interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, the couple revealed that they were expecting a baby girl.
“To have a boy and then a girl, what more could you ask for?” Harry commented during the interview. The couple also reported that they will have no more children after the arrival of their daughter.
The prince stated his feelings when he learned that the expected child was a girl, saying, “I am grateful and happy to have any child, but to have a boy and then a girl, this is wonderful, now our family has become 4 members.”
Megan’s pregnancy came in difficult circumstances, especially after she had a miscarriage last July. “Losing a child means enduring an unbearable grief that so many suffer but so few talk about,” she wrote in a deeply touching New York Times article on November 25.
