Finally, after months of distress, the fourth member of one of the most popular families in the world has arrived. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their second baby and fans are extremely happy about it. In fact, social media has been a frenzy over this, showering the royal couple with lovely messages all over the weekend.

The baby girl, whose name is Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, was born in a hospital located in Santa Barbara. The couple chose her first name as a nod to The Queen's nickname, while her middle name was chosen to honor her late grandmother, Princess Diana. Lilibet is the eight in line to the British royal throne.

We know the couple is somewhat of an oversharer, and they like to keep in touch with fans and followers all over the world. Which is why, they decided to share some sweet words for their little one, and they did so via their website for Archewell Foundation. “We were blessed with the arrival of our daughter, Lili. She is more than we could have ever imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we've felt from across the globe,” they wrote.

Finally, both Meghan and Prince Harry went on to thank everyone for their “continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family.” The Sussexes received congratulary messages from the Buckingham Palace on behalf of The Queen, as well as from Prince Charles, Prince William and Kate Middleton. The message said: “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.” This message came in the form of a statement via Buckingham Palace. On the other hand, William and Kate added “We are all delighted by the happy news of the arrival of baby Lili. Contratulations to Harry, Meghan and Archie.”

News of the newborn comes after the couple announced they were expecting a second child on Valentine's Day. “We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother,” the couple announced through a statement. At the time, the couple revealed to be overjoyed to be expecting their second baby. Also, the couple debuted a marvelous portrait made by Misan Harriman, in which Meghan and Harry appear to be positively beaming at one another with Meghan's baby bump front and center.

It's been more than a year, since the couple decided to step down from their royal duties, and move to the United States. After moving there, they have been very active on social media, as well as in several multimedia outlets making comments about all the things that led to their decision, what have they gone through and certain appearances on television, alleviating their public image. One of the most infamous appearances was the sit-down the couple did with Oprah, for her show, for a very intimate interview in which the couple revealed to have been target of racism from royal family members.
