What is Lilibet's full name?
Her full name is Lilibet "Lili" Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.
Baby Lilibet is a nod to a nickname for the Queen when she was young, while her middle name is an ode to Princes Diana – Harry's mother.
Lilibet means “God’s promise.”
The new arrival is the Queen’s 11th great-grandchild, joining big brother Archie and Prince William's kids George, Charlotte and Louis.
Where was Lilibet born?
Lilibet's birth came after it was previously reported Meghan was planning a home birth at her luxury LA mansion.
The Duchess of Sussex was initially said to be planning to deliver her daughter at home in the early summer.
But their daughter was born at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital instead – as Meghan seemed to ditch the idea to have a home birth.
She is also the first royal to be born in the US.
Lilibet is now eighth in line to the throne – following her own father Prince Harry, uncle Prince William, grandfather Prince Charles, her cousins, and her older brother Archie.
