Daughter of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on the Next Line of Succession

By: Tadi Abedje

Lilibet is the second child of Harry and Meghan behind her older brother, Archie. She has been ranked number eight in the line of succession of the Royal Family behind The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge, Prince George of Cambridge, Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, Prince Louis of Cambridge, The Duke of Sussex and Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor. 

According to the Royal Family website, the goal of the succession plan was born out of the constitutional progression in the 17th century, as it led to the Bill of Rights in 1689 and the Act of Settlement in 1701.

Harry and Meghan named their daughter Lilibet after her late grandmother, Diana, Princess of Wales. She was born at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, California. 

“On June 4, we were blessed with the arrival of our daughter, Lili. 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,” said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the Archewell website.

The new addition to the family came during the aftermath of their huge interview with Oprah Winfrey. In the discussion, Meghan revealed having mental health issues, while criticizing the British monarchy, and Harry alienating his family. In January 2020, they made the decision to step away from the royal family, make their own money and split time in England and America.
