The birth of Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor brought new hopes in restoring the broken relationship between the Sussexes and the rest of the royal family.
The proud mom and dad announced the arrival of their second child who is the Queen’s 11th great-grandchild and eighth in line to the throne writing:
“June 4th, God bless us with the arrival of our daughter Lily. This is more wonderful than we could have imagined, and we are grateful for the love and prayers that have poured out on us from different parts of the world.
“We thank you for your generosity and continued support during this special period in our family’s life.”
A Sussex source says that the Queen was the first family Harry called after Lilibet’s birth and during that conversation, he shared the couple’s hope of naming their daughter in her honor. Had she not been supportive, they would not have used the name.https://t.co/5rGmk3h3o4

The name is a beautiful tribute to the baby’s great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth whose childhood nickname is Lilibet. In fact, it was how late Prince Philip called the Queen. The name Diana, of course, pays tribute to Harry’s late mother.
Congratulations on the new arrival in the royal family came from all around the world. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge expressed their happiness writing: “Congratulations to Harry, Meghan and Archie on the arrival of baby Lilibet Diana. Wishing them all well at this special time.”

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall tweeted: “Congratulations to Harry, Meghan and Archie on the arrival of baby Lilibet Diana. Wishing them all well at this special time.”
In fact, some more good news came as many believe that the birth of Lilibeth will be a reason more for Prince Charles to forgive his son and his daughter-in-law and will try to overcome the hard feelings towards them after everything they said about the royals during the Oprah interview as well as during Harry’s appearance on Dax Shepard’s The Armchair Expert podcast where he spoke of the “genetic pain and suffering” his father passed on him.

During a visit to a British production plant yesterday, Prince Charles, who was reported to be visibly happy, said:
“The development of technology like electric vehicles, or green hydrogen for that matter for heavy transport, is vital for maintaining the health of our world for future generations, something I’m only too aware of today having recently become a grandfather for the fifth time.
“And such happy news really does remind one of the necessity of continued innovation in this area, especially around sustainable battery technology, in view of the legacy we bequeath to our grandchildren,” as reported by Metro.
Reports say that Prince Charles and Harry are in contact every day since the birth of Lilibet. The Telegraph Newspaper reports that despite still feeling hurt by all the allegations the Sussexes exposed in the media, the royals recognize Harry’s pain and want to calm things down.
