The baby of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has officially been accepted into the successor! On June 4th, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex gave birth to their daughter Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor at Santa Barbara's Cottage Hospital. The little boy is named after her great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II and Harry's late mother Princess Diana.
"On June 4th, we were blessed with the arrival of our daughter Lili," the couple said in a statement. “It is more than we could ever have imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we have felt from around the world. Thank you for your continued kindness and support in this very special time for our family. "
Although Lili did not receive a royal title at birth (as did her brother Archie), she still has a place in the British line of succession. On July 26, the official succession website was updated to show Lilibet eighth in line to the British throne, after Harry and Archie, sixth and seventh respectively. Prince Charles comes first in the line of succession, followed by Prince William and his three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
