The British royal family has a new member! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have indeed become parents for the second time, this Friday, June 4. The Sussexes have welcomed a little girl with very symbolic first names: Lilibet “Lili” Diana. After maintaining the vagueness on the date of her delivery, the Duchess gave birth to her daughter in a hospital in Santa Barbara at the end of the morning and the two are doing wonderfully. “On June 4th, we were blessed with the arrival of our daughter, Lili. She is more than we could have imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we have felt across the world, the happy parents wrote in a statement posted on their foundation website. Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family. “
And as with every royal birth, the order of succession to the throne has therefore changed. With the arrival of Lili, the eleventh great-grandchild of His Majesty, he was not however upset. The second child of the Sussexes is in fact now in eighth position behind his grandfather Prince Charles, his uncle Prince William, his cousins and cousin George, Charlotte and Louis (the children of Cambridge), his father Prince Harry and finally , his big brother Archie. Particularity of the little girl: she has dual nationality, since she was therefore born in the United States. Concretely, she could be elected president of the USA while being on the throne of England. A few days before the birth of her baby, Meghan Markle made rare confidences about her pregnancy, lived after a miscarriage.
Will little Lili have a royal title?
“My husband and I are delighted to welcome a daughter soon – it is a feeling of joy that we share with millions of other families around the world,” she said at an event her husband attended. . As CNN reminds us, Lili has therefore acquired the right to be a Lady from birth, but will probably not use this title. As was the case with her older brother, her parents should refuse to allow her to wear a courtesy title. On their site after their daughter’s birth was announced, the Sussexes asked those who would like to give them gifts to prefer donations to “organizations working for women and girls: Girls Inc., Harvest Home, CAMFED or Myna Mahila Foundation “. Parents for the second time, they will be able to enjoy their newborn and their eldest child during their holidays.
