The source added: “Meghan and Harry are also taking time off to focus on their family.”

Announcing her birth on their Archewell Foundation website, a statement said: “It is with great joy that Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, welcome their daughter, Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, to the world.
