Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's tour of New York has been quite the whirlwind, with the couple making appearances at the likes of large-scale events, such as Global Citizen Live, to more intimate settings like a school in Harlem, where the Duchess of Sussex dropped in to read her best-selling book, The Bench.

Whilst visiting the One World Trade Center last week, Meghan also shared the sweetest update on "beautiful" baby Lilibet, who is now three months old. After a reporter asked, "Meghan, how's Lilibet?" she replied with two words: "She's beautiful!" How cute?

The mother-of-two also gave an update on her and Harry's son, Archie, who is now two years old (where has the time gone!), when asked and gave a grin and a big thumbs up.

So far, the Sussexes have kept most details about Lilibet very hush-hush, having not released any images of her following her birth, as is tradition with other royal children. The birth of their daughter, who is nicknamed Lili and who was named after Queen Elizabeth II, was also not announced right away either, as the couple waited two days before making the happy news public.

The joyful news was shared via a statement issued to the press and on their Archewell website, rather than through any official royal communication channels, which said that Lilibet was born at 11:40AM on Friday at a hospital in Santa Barbara and weighed 7 lbs 11 oz.

In the official statement, a spokesperson for Meghan and Harry 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. Lili was born on Friday, June 4 at 11:40 a.m. in the trusted care of the doctors and staff at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, CA."

It added that the name Lilibet is a family nickname for Queen Elizabeth and that Diana as a middle name is of course a tribute to Princess Diana, Harry's mother. "Lili is named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet. Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honor her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales."

It's great to hear that both Lili and Archie are thriving over in California!
