Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will keep the name of their newborn daughter's godparents under wraps, it has been reported.

On Sunday the couple revealed they welcomed their daughter Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor on Friday 4 June, at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, California, weighing 7lb 11oz.

And The Daily Telegraph has now claimed that, just like the birth of their two-year-old son Archie, the pair will not make the identity of Lilibet's godparents known.

Harry and Meghan, who are soon expected to hold a private christening for their second child, broke royal protocol after keeping the godparents of little Archie a secret.

This follows on from reports that the Queen has invited Harry to lunch for what will be their first private meeting since he stepped down from royal duties last year.

Harry is due to fly back to the UK to attend the unveiling of a new Princess Diana statue next month.

It has now been claimed that the Queen is hoping to use her grandson's time back in England for a "chance to talk things through" and address his "strained" relationship with the royal family.

"It's a typically magnanimous gesture by Her Majesty," a courtier told the Daily Mail.

It was added that the invite by the Monarch was sent before the birth of Harry and Meghan's daughter on Friday 4 June.

The Duke Of Sussex is due to fly back from California to attend the unveiling of a statue of his mother on what would have been her 60th birthday.

Harry, 36, made the transatlantic journey in April for Prince Philip's funeral but only spoke to the Queen in the presence of other royals.

It's likely that Harry, who is known to have a close relationship with the Queen, will sit down with her to discuss the numerous bombshell accusations he has recently made about his life growing up in the royal family.

Harry and Meghan, who named their daughter in tribute to the Queen and Princess Diana, have seemed much happier since moving to sunny California last year.
