Her name is Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.

The second child of Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, was born at 11:40 a.m. Friday at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, the press secretary for the couple said.

Mother and child are well and “settling in at home,” the announcement said. Lili, who weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces, is named after her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, whose family nickname is Lilibet. The middle name, Diana, honors Harry’s mother, the late Princess of Wales.
