QUEEN And Royal Family Say They Are ‘Delighted’ At News Of Meghan Giving Birth
Following the news today of the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s second child, Buckingham Palace has reportedly released a statement which says the Queen, Prince Charles, and Prince William are all “delighted” with the news, after senior members of the Royal Family came together to send their best wishes to the couple’s newborn daughter – Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, according to dailystar.co.uk.
A spokeswoman for Buckingham Palace said, “The Queen, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been informed and are delighted with the news of the birth of a daughter for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex”.
After the news had been released, there were those who speculated why the announcement had been worded very differently to when baby Archie had entered the world two years ago, when the official news had read, “The Queen and the Royal Family are delighted at the news…”, and hours after the birth was announced, there had still been no news from Buckingham Palace,
Today’s statement from the Sussexes read significantly different, “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”, with no mention of the Monarch, or the Royal family.
The Duchess of Sussex gave birth to a daughter in Santa Barbara on Friday morning, and the birth was announced, “Lili was born on Friday, June 4, at 11.40am, in the trusted care of the doctors and staff at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, California. She weighed 7lbs 11oz (3.5kg). Both mother and child are healthy and well and settling in at home”.
“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. This is the second child for the couple, who also have a two-year-old son named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. The Duke and Duchess thank you for your warm wishes and prayers as they enjoy this special time as a family”.
