On Sunday evening, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced the news Meghan had given birth to a daughter, weighing 7lbs 11oz. The couple said both mother and daughter are doing well and that the couple had decided to name the baby Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor. Members of the Royal Family rushed to congratulate the couple on the new arrival, with Kate and William’s message appearing to show a shift in relations.

Kate and William posted a congratulatory message to the Sussexes’ on their social media accounts, which read: “We are all delighted by the happy news of the arrival of baby Lili.

“Congratulations to Harry, Meghan and Archie.”

Their Instagram post featured one of the stunning black and white photos of the Sussex trio taken to announce the news of their pregnancy earlier this year.

The post has received more than 1.4million likes and 10,000 comments, with royal fans pointing out the gushing statement appears to show steps towards a royal reconciliation between the two families.

One person wrote: “So happy to see The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge take the high road and acknowledge this.”

Another person said: “I never expected less than graciousness from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.”

A third wrote: “We can all learn a lesson on ‘taking the higher road’ by watching the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

“I am proud to have them as my future King and Queen.”

Harry also discussed the rift in his recent sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey, where he reiterated the pair were on “different paths”.

The Duke also claimed his brother, as well as Prince Charles, is “trapped by the institution”.

He told Oprah: “I am part of the system with them, I always have been, but I guess — and I’m very aware of this — my brother can’t leave that system, but I have.

“My father and my brother are trapped. They don’t get to leave, and I have huge compassion for that.”

Royal expert Robert Jobson told Express.co.uk the “trapped” comment was one of the most damaging of the entire interview.

But the arrival of the new royal baby is hoped to provide a source of reconciliation between the Sussexes and the wider Royal Family.

Commentator Richard Kay wrote in a column for the Daily Mail: “How often have new babies brought reconciliation to warring families?

“And the healing power of baby Lili could be vital to resolving the sadness at the heart of the Royal Family.

“This is the rift between Harry and William. Now that both are fathers of boys and girls and the challenges that brings, Lili’s arrival offers a unique opportunity.”
