The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s daughter is eighth in line for the throne — pushing back Prince Andrew, Princess Beatrice, and Princess Eugenie in the royal line of succession.
Lili is named after her great-grandmother,Her Majesty, whose family nickname is Lilibet. Her middle name Diana was chosen to honor her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales. Her name contains sweet nods to the monarch and the baby’s late grandmother.
Prince Harry and Meghan’s first child Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born on 6 May 2019. He is still seventh in line for the throne even though his parents stepped back from royal life and settled in Montecito.
