The Duke, 36, and Duchess of Sussex, 39, welcomed Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor on Friday, June 4 at 11.40am at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California.
The couple are now preparing to start life as a family of four, as Lilibet joins their eldest son Archie who turned two last month.
A source told People magazine that the pair eagerly introduced Harry’s grandmother to her namesake during a video call.
