Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to relinquish their titles and hold official functions as members of the royal family shocked the public. The couple moved to the United States, and after a few months announced that they were expecting a second child. Their daughter was born on Friday June 4 at 11:40 am at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in the US.

– we can read in the official announcement of the couple.
According to People magazine, after returning home from the hospital, the Sussexs introduced Queen Elizabeth II to her namesake via a video call. They were very excited and couldn’t wait to share the happy news with their loved ones. According to People, her older brother Archie was also very happy about her sister’s birth. We remind you that, like most children of a British family, he was born in Great Britain, where he was also baptized according to a special procedure. It would seem that the birth of Lilibet overseas was a phenomenon, but it turns out that she was not the first of her family to be born in the United States, or even in sunny California.
A few years before her birth, the son of Queen Elizabeth’s cousin, Lord Frederick Windsor, and his wife, Sophie Winkleman, also settled in that state, where they welcomed their first child. Maud Elizabeth Daphne Marina Windsor was born in August 2013 at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. Interestingly, it’s not the only thing that both families have in common. Like Meghan Markle, Sophie Winkleman is an actress, in 2011-2015 she appeared in the series “Two and a half”. However, the couple do not live in Los Angeles anymore, and in 2016 had another child. Isabella Alexandra May Windsor was already born in one of London’s hospitals.
