Prince Harry and Meghan announced on Sunday the birth of their second child, baby girl Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, who will become an older sister to 2-year-old Archie Harrison.

“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,” a statement on the Archewell foundation website read.
