Explaining the unique name, it said, “Lili is named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet. Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honor her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales.”

It's an interesting move considering Harry is still at odds with several members of the royal family, including his dad Prince Charles and brother Prince William.

Her uncle dropped the bombshell, saying that if anyone can repair Harry and William's relationship, it's Kate.

Meghan and Harry just celebrated their third wedding anniversary last month, and the palace as well as William failed to acknowledge the couple's monumental day.

Their daughter marks the second child for Harry and Meghan. The couple are already parents to two-year-old son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
