She has given fans a glimpse at her daughter, Lilibet…since posting the image the internet have’t stopped talking about it.
Scroll down to see why people are so excited…..
On 11th June Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their new baby girl into the world on
Lili was born at 11:40 a.m. at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.
Their daughter was called Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.
The as chosen as a tribute to Harry’s late mother Diana, Princess of Wales, who passed away in 1997.
Lilibet is also tribute to Queen Elizabeth II herself.
The Queen bestowed this pet family name upon herself as a child as she couldn’t pronounce the name Elizabeth. Prince Philip and her doting father, King George VI used this name when referring to Elizabeth.
Their is much scrutiny against the Royal Family since the pair stepping down from their positions last January.
Meghan and Harry claimed they strived for a more private life for their children, and moved to Los Angeles as a result.
Many are of the opinion that the couple have slandered the Royal Family.
Harry now has a strained relationship with his brother, father and grandparents.
Despite recent rifts, the Royal Family are “delighted” with the news.
Despite Harry’s continuous blasting of them across all media platforms.
Harry’s relationship with his family is still under strain.
Harry was financially cut off from his father after they stepped down and at first they were forced to live off Diana’s inheritance.
Oprah Winfrey asked during their televised interview why they left, Harry said due to a “lack of support and lack of understanding.”
He also said he wanted to get away from the ‘genetic pain’ he felt from his family, particualrly his father, Prince Charles.
“I feel really let down because he’s been through something similar, he knows what pain feels like, (and) Archie’s his grandson.”
“But at the same time – I will always love him – but there’s a lot of hurt that’s happened and I will continue to make it one of my priorities to try and heal that relationship. But they only know what they know, or what they’re told.”
Lilibet’s name happens to be the main point of controversy this time…
Angela Levin, Royal biographer deems it as ‘rude.’
It appears Harry has broken royal protocol using the Queen’s private pet name as a first name.
Harry has been criticised for giving the name to his child.
Royal commentator, Richard Kay, suggested that it may be a step too far for Meghan and Harry to name their daughter Lilibet.
He said: “By giving the baby the name Lilibet, the Queen’s private family nickname – even though they intend to use the diminutive ‘Lili’ for their daughter – there is a risk.”
“Will it be seen as a presumptuous choice for a royal baby who is eighth in line to the throne, but who will grow up on the other side of the world speaking with an American accent?”
“It is tempting to wonder if Harry would have been so emboldened in his choice if his grandfather Prince Philip – the only close family member permitted to call the Queen ‘Lilibet’ – had still been alive.”
“Doubtless, there will be among the more cautious courtiers at the Palace some discomfort and the odd raised eyebrow at this latest convention-destroying Exocet from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.”
There are mixed response to the name, while others believe it to be a touching tribute.
However the controversy has since taken a backseat…
As the couple eventually share an image of Lilibet…
The clip below shows the Meghan chatting on a video call while sitting at a desk…
The video was taken on her fortieth birthday.
Meghan’s new project 40×40, was set up assist women getting back to workplace after giving birth.
She chats with Melissa McCarthy via video call, asking for her help with the project.
Meghan has asked forty friends to donate forty minutes to help mentor a woman back into work.
Melissa agrees, before saying: “see ya at 50,” after which Meghan blows out candles on a birthday cake.
The video ends with Melissa joking that the video had “a lot of hat work.”
Meghan also shared a message in relation to their Archewell website: “In reflecting on my 40th birthday and the many things I am grateful for, I’m struck that time is among our greatest and most essential gifts.”
“Time with our loved ones, time doing the things we love, time spent learning, laughing, growing, and the sacred time we have on this earth. Amongst the most valuable gifts of time is also time spent in service to others knowing that it can contribute to incredible change.”
“To that last point, and with my 40th lap around the sun in mind, it made me wonder: what would happen if we all committed 40 minutes to helping someone else or to mentoring someone in need? And then what would happen if we asked our friends to do the same?”
“In the past two years, and in large part because of the COVID-19 pandemic, tens of millions of women around the world have left the workforce, including over 2 million women in the US.”
“So many of these women are also shouldering the brunt of the crisis when it comes to unpaid labor, including schooling and caring for family members. And the latest research shows that fewer women than men will regain work as we recover from the pandemic.”
“I believe mentorship is one way to help women regain confidence and rebuild their economic strength, and for my birthday, I have asked 40 friends, activists, athletes, artists, and world leaders to help kickoff a global effort by contributing 40 minutes of mentorship to support women re-entering the workforce.”
“With this time, I hope they each help someone advance a professional life on her own terms, and, I hope that they inspire countless others to give 40 minutes of their time as well.
“If you are able, please join us and pledge 40 minutes today in service of others in the way that feels right to you. The time that you donate can contribute to a global wave of service and set in motion meaningful impact in our own communities, and across the world.”
Fans have pointed out four family photos since the video was released:
