The newest member of the Sussex family is here, and grandfather Prince Charles is excited about the news. The littlest royal arrived on Friday, June 4 at 11:40 a.m at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, California, weighing in at a healthy 7 lbs 11 oz.

Both Prince Harry's father, the Prince of Wales, and his stepmother Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, released a statement, along with Queen Elizabeth and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, sharing that they're "delighted" with the news of the baby's birth. See the full statement from the royal family here, per a Buckingham Palace spokesperson:

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.

Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor is Charles's fifth grandchild, joining her older brother Archie, and her cousins Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. Her name is a tribute to great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth and her late grandmother, Princess Diana. The little girl is Queen Elizabeth's eleventh great-grandchild, and is now eighth in line to the throne just after Archie.

The royals are famously fans of the word "delighted;" they also used it back in February when Harry and Meghan first publicly announced the pregnancy. Shortly after the Sussexes' announcement, a spokesperson for Buckingham Palace shared the royal reaction to Harry and Meghan's baby news.: the entire family was "delighted."
