Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor (born 4 June 2021) is the younger child and only daughter of Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and the younger sister of Archie Mountbatten-Windsor. She is the eleventh great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and is eighth in the line of succession to the British throne.[1]

Early life[change | change source]

Mountbatten-Windsor was born at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, California, on 4 June 2021 at 11:40 PDT (19:26 UTC). She is named after her paternal great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II and paternal grandmother Diana, Princess of Wales.[2]

Title[change | change source]

Mountbatten-Windsor is eighth in the line of succession to the British throne. She can become a princess when her grandfather, Charles, Prince of Wales becomes king.[1]

In the 2021 television interview, the Duchess of Sussex said that she had been told that changes would be made to remove that entitlement as part of Charles's reported plans for a slimmed-down monarchy.[3]
