Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just gave the royal family a reason to celebrate.

On June 4, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their second child—a baby girl named Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor. In case it wasn’t obvious enough, a statement from a representative for the royal couple confirmed that Archie’s sister is, indeed, named after Queen Elizabeth II as well as Prince Harry’s mother, Princess Diana

“Lili was born on Friday, June 4, at 11:40 a.m. in the trusted care of the doctors and staff at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, CA. She weighed 7 lb. 11 oz. Both mother and child are healthy and well, and settling in at home,” the statement read, per People. “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.

“This is the second child for the couple, who also have a two-year-old son named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor,” the statement continued. “The Duke and Duchess thank you for your warm wishes and prayers as they enjoy this special time as a family.”
