Prince William and Kate celebrate arrival of new niece

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have a new cousin!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a new niece!  Prince William  and  Kate Middleton  celebrated the arrival of  Meghan Markle  and  Prince Harry ’s baby girl, Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, on Sunday with a sweet post on Instagram. The Cambridges shared a previously seen photo, taken by Misan Harriman, that showed a then-pregnant Meghan cradling her son  Archie Harrison  while Harry sweetly hugged his wife.

“We are all delighted by the happy news of the arrival of baby Lili,” the image was captioned. “Congratulations to Harry, Meghan and Archie.”

William and Kate welcomed another niece earlier this year. The Duchess of Cambridge’s younger sister  Pippa Middleton gave birth to her second child, Grace Elizabeth Jane Matthews , on March 15.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex revealed on Sunday that their second child, Lili, was born on June 4. Meghan gave birth Friday at the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, CA. The baby girl’s name is a tribute to her late paternal grandmother  Princess Diana  and great-grandmother  Queen Elizabeth . “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,” a press release on the Sussexes’ Archewell website states.

Following the announcement of the birth of the Queen’s 11th great-grandchild, Buckingham Palace released a statement saying (via HELLO!), “The Queen, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been informed and are delighted with the news of the birth of a daughter for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.”

Her Majesty’s social media accounts also shared a photo of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex from their wedding day writing, “Congratulations to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the birth of Lilibet Diana! The Queen, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted with the news.”
