By now we're sure you will have heard the happy news that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have welcomed the birth of their second child, Lilibet. But ICYMI, the couple announced on Sunday (June 6) that their daughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, had arrived safe and sound on Friday (June 4). It's safe to say we're all excited by the news, and royal fans are probably wondering when we'll get our first glimpse of baby Lilibet. But, we might be waiting a little while yet.
As we all know, last year Harry and Meghan stepped back as senior working members of the Royal Family. Since then, the couple have adopted a more private approach to their lives, particularly when it comes to sharing details and photographs of their family.
In a break from royal tradition, after the birth of the couple's first child, Archie, in 2019, they did not pose for a photo on the steps of the hospital ward, like Prince William and Kate Middleton, or Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana. More recently, on Archie's second birthday, the couple chose to share a photo of their son that didn't show his face. They've also paired back the content they share on their social media accounts, and removed personal photos from their Archewell site.
Because Harry and Meghan are no longer senior royals, there's no pressure to release photos or information. And, given that the couple didn't inform the public of Lili's birth right away, it's likely they'll be in no rush to share her first photo either.
We totally support the couple's choice, and can't wait to see a photo of baby Lili when they decide the time is right.
