You're Pronouncing Harry and Meghan's Daughter's Name Completely Wrong

Congratulations are in order for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who shared on Sunday that they've welcomed their second child into the world — a daughter named Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.

Born on Friday, June 4 at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, California, Lili weighed in at 7 lbs 11 oz. Both she and Meghan “are healthy and well.” In an official statement, the two shared that the name was thoughtfully chosen to pay tribute to Harry’s mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, and grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, whose family nickname is Lilibet.

“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,” Meghan and Harry said in the statement. "Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family.”

The Queen, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted with the news. Lilibet is Her Majesty’s 11th great-grandchild."

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also declared: "We are all delighted by the happy news of the arrival of baby Lili. Congratulations to Harry, Meghan and Archie."

Whether this is the first time you’ve heard the name Lilibet or you immediately recognized it from watching The Crown, you might be wondering how to say the name correctly.

So, how do you pronounce Lilibet?

Lilibet is pronounced “Lily-bet.” You can hear the proper pronunciation in the Youtube video below:

According to the Sussexes, Lilibet will go by “Lili.” That said, it’s still good to know how to pronounce Lilibet, especially if an opportunity arises to discuss royal baby facts at the family dinner table.

Congrats again to the happy family of four!
