The couple also portato su Instagram to show their support for the growing family after news of the birth broke on Sunday.
“We are all delighted by the happy news of the arrival of baby Lili,” they captioned a black and white photo of a then-pregnant Markle, 39, sharing a sweet embrace with Harry, 36, and their firstborn Archie, 2.
“Congratulations to Harry, Meghan and Archie,” hanno aggiunto.
La bambina è nata a 11:40 a.m. al Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital di Santa Barbara, California, e pesato in a 7 lbs, 11 oz, ha detto un portavoce della coppia. Il bambino è l'ottavo in linea di successione al trono britannico.
“Grazie per la vostra continua gentilezza e supporto durante questo momento molto speciale per la nostra famiglia,” the couple wrote in a statement that accompanied the birth announcement.
Il bambino è “più di quanto avremmo mai potuto immaginare, e rimaniamo grati per l'amore e le preghiere che abbiamo sentito da tutto il mondo,” hanno continuato.
Negli ultimi mesi, the British royal family has been embroiled in tension and drama following Harry and Markle’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey a marzo. Their claims included accusations of racism and turning a blind eye to mental health struggles.
Da allora, it’s understood that Harry and William have had conversations that were “not productive,” secondo Gayle King. tuttavia, it seems Middleton is working to remedy that.
“The harsh truth – in my opinion – is that if Harry doesn’t get a grip and stop this self-indulgent episode, there will soon be no common ground or relationship to rebuild,” Middleton’s uncle, Gary Goldsmith, detto Closer. “But if anyone can bring peace to the royals, Kate can. Kate is a brilliant arbiter and peacemaker.”
Ha aggiunto: “Every bone in her body is about making friends and doing the best she can… She’s trying to mediate.”
It’s been reported that Middleton put in some work on the brothers’ relationship in April when they reunited for the funeral of their grandfather, Principe Filippo, which Goldsmith made note of.
“You could see at the funeral that Kate was there trying to make peace, bringing the brothers together,” Egli ha detto. “Harry and Kate were great friends, they were a trio with William and a strong unit. Family and relationships are everything to Kate – she’s very nurturing, she wouldn’t like that [rift] happening and she is trying to look after her husband and do what she can to make things right.”
It seems that the extended family’s feelings about Harry and Markle may be souring, tuttavia, as Goldsmith said his own thinking has shifted.
“I went from being happy [about Harry taking the decision to seek a more private life] to angry, to worried about him,” ha ammesso. “Everyone is astonished. He wanted to step back and protect his wife, now he’s charging in. It’s an attack on the family – why do it? If you want an easy life, work it out privately and have a conversation respectfully. Don’t air it in public, it’s really hurtful.”
inoltre, Goldsmith, brother to Middleton’s mother Carole, said that “if Harry doesn’t get a grip and stop this self-indulgent episode, there will soon be no common ground or relationship to rebuild.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s departures from royal duties began last year over what they described as the British media’s intrusions and racist attitudes towards the duchess. La famiglia ora risiede nella città costiera di Montecito, Calif.
