"Harry and Meghan said they were "blessed" by the arrival of their second child. "She is more than we could have ever imagined," they wrote, "and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we've felt from across the globe." Mother and baby are "healthy and well" and adjusting to life at home, they said," reported The Washington Post.

The child's name was viewed by many as a peace offering, as the Sussex's have had a tumultuous year filled with a deepening divide as Harry and Meghan spoke openly regarding their mental health challenges and feelings of desperation.

The revelation of personal and intimate insider information was not celebrated and the two found themselves drifting further. The recent death of Prince Philip brought Harry back to the palace and from appearances looked as if bridges were mending.
