Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor will be known as Lili for short, after the royals’ family nickname for the Queen.
She was born on Friday June 4 at 11.40am at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California, weighing 7lb 11 oz.
In a statement, Meghan and Harry’s press secretary said that ‘both mother and child are healthy and well, and settling in at home’.
They made the announcement with ‘great joy’.
Lili’s middle name, Diana, was chosen to honour her 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 statement added: ‘The Duke and Duchess thank you for your warm wishes and prayers as they enjoy this special time as a family.’
They have not yet released a photo of the new baby.
