Lahore, 7th June: Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have been blessed with their second child, a baby girl on Friday at the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California.
The couple named the child ‘Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor’, after Britain’s Queen Elizabeth and Harry’s late mother Princess Diana.
Lilibet is in fact Queen Elizabeth’s family nickname. Hence the name pays tribute to the 95-year-old British Queen after the former Duke and Duchess of Sussex faced a difficult year with the royal family.
