Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Welcomed Their Baby and We Are Crying
Cue the tears. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their second child, a daughter, on Friday, June 4.
The couple announced the news in a statement from the nonprofit they founded, Archewell.
“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,” the statement said.
It went on to explain that their daughter was named after Queen Elizabeth, whose family nickname is Lilibet, and Princess Diana, Harry’s late mother.
The couple shared a heartfelt message of thanks as they celebrated the arrival of their daughter: “She is more than we could have ever imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we’ve felt from across the globe. Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family.”
If you’re as obsessed with Meghan and Harry — along with the entire Royal family — as we are, you may want something to celebrate. Or maybe you need something to help calm yourself.
1. A T-Shirt Honoring the Badassery of Women
Meghan has always been an icon — one of fashion, beauty, and strength. Now, she’s a mom of two — and has a daughter herself.
Women hold immense power, and Meghan reminds us of that. Grab a t-shirt celebrating the badassery of females and female-identifying people with the message: “The future is female.” (The present is also female, too.)
Remind everyone of the power women hold with this message. It might also check Chad and his fragile masculinity, which is just a bonus.
2. A Bath Soak or Bomb to celebrate
We live for any excuse to take a bath to the next level. Cue the rosé, light the candles, and take your celebratory bath to the next level.
Pour a soak to pop it like it’s hot. With sea salts, roses, and tea blended with the scent of champagne, this is basically a party in a jar.
If you need something to help you relax over this exciting news, try a bath bomb to calm the fuck down — or calm your tits. We get it. We also might be a little too hype over this news.
3. A Candle to Match Your Mood
Some of us are in tears over the news of Meghan and Harry’s baby. Others may have a more stressed response. No matter your mood, there’s a candle to match your energy.
Feel like day drinking to celebrate? Try a candle that smells like it’s time to drink and prosecco — and maybe pop a bottle of champagne while you’re at it. Just try not to get drunk if you’ve got a big work meeting. Or let’s get lit with one that smells of good vibes and fresh cut grass.
Are you stressed over this news and don’t know how to feel? It’s okay — there’s a candle if you don’t know WTF is happening. Alternatively, you can get one to say “welcome to the shit show!” We’re all doing our best.
Mom brain is real — and a new baby is sure to amplify that. At least your house can smell nice, with hints of dreams of a clean house, lemon, jasmine, and cotton.
We hope you’re able to find a way to celebrate the arrival of Lilibet “Lil”’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.
Whether you’re happy crying, feeling overwhelmed, or are numb and don’t know how to react, you can find something to help you manage those rush of emotions.
