Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honor her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales."

The arrival of the couple's second child is truly worth all the headlines and celebrations. This is especially after Meghan disclosed a miscarriage she suffered in July 2020 and was admitted to hospital.

When we rewind, the couple announced their pregnancy with Lilibet on Valentine's Day. The couple made the announcement with a very classic and simple black-and-white photograph, which was taken by their friend and longtime photographer, Misan Harriman. The news excited most of their fans as it followed their dramatic step down from royal duties in January. 

"We intend to step back as 'senior' members of the royal family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen," they said in a statement released by Buckingham Palace.
