Lilibet "Lili" Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, who weighed 7 lbs 11 oz, was named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, whose nickname is Lilibet.

They welcomed their first baby, Archie, in 2019.

The little girl's middle name was also given to her as a tribute to her late grandmother Diana, the Princess of Wales, who tragically passed away in 1997.
