The heartfelt tribute messages come two months after Prince Harry reunited with his loved ones at his grandfather, Prince Philip's funeral on April 17th.

It was also the first time that Harry had visited his family following his tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey which sent ripples all throughout social media.

It remains unknown where Megan and Harry stand with the royal family after their exit from it in February this year.

However, it is good to see that all things considered, they remain cordial with one another.

The arrival of Lili comes less than a month after their son, Archie had turned two years old in May.

We can't wait until they decide to show us pictures of her!

As always, thank you for taking the time to read my article. Stay blessed.
