The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have announced the birth of their second child, a daughter named Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, or “Lili”.
She was born in Santa Barbara, California on Friday, but news of the birth didn’t break until an announcement came from Prince Harry and Meghan at 2:00am.
At that time, it was well into Sunday afternoon in London, in the United Kingdom.
So what have the other royals had to say?
Prince William and Catherine
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge tweeted about the birth at 8:00pm Sunday, local time.
They used that go-to royal term “delighted” in congratulating the Sussexes on the “arrival of baby Lili”.
We are all delighted by the happy news of the arrival of baby Lili.
Congratulations to Harry, Meghan and Archie.

Prince Charles and Camilla
The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall tweeted a photo of Prince Harry, Meghan and baby Archie.
They also threw in a confetti ball emoji for extra celebratory zing.
Their tweet was posted at the same time as Prince William and Catherine.

Queen Elizabeth II hasn’t given an official statement but The Royal Family, the official Twitter account for Buckingham Palace, posted about the birth at 8:00pm London time — the same as the other royals.
It was more of a group message, speaking for the Queen, Prince Charles and Camilla, and Prince William and Catherine.
They’re all “delighted” and opted for a photo of Prince Harry and Meghan on their wedding day.
There was no emoji, but there was an exclamation mark.
Congratulations to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the birth of Lilibet Diana! The Queen, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted with the news.

Prince Andrew’s daughter Princess Eugenie uploaded a photo of Harry and Meghan on her Instagram story.
“Congratulations dear cousins… we couldn’t be happier for you all,” she wrote, throwing in six heart emojis.
She didn’t tag Prince Harry and Meghan’s Instagram account — which hasn’t posted since March last year.
The tag seen in her story was to photographer Misan Harriman, who took the black-and-white photo of the Sussexes.
What about the rest?
We haven’t heard from Princess Anne, the Earl and Countess of Wessex or the Duke of York yet.
But Princess Anne doesn’t have her own Twitter account; her activities are typically covered by the Royal Family account.
Prince Edward and Sophie have a Twitter account but it hasn’t been overly active in recent weeks — the last tweet was back in April about Prince Louis’s birthday.
And Prince Andrew’s last social media post was his announcement that he was stepping back from public duties because of the “major disruption” caused by his “former association with Jeffrey Epstein” in November 2019.
Princess Beatrice, Prince Andrew’s other daughter, isn’t on Instagram and she hasn’t posted on her Twitter account since March.
