Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are believed to be keeping a major detail about their daughter Lilibet a secret.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are predicted to be keeping the identity of baby daughter Lilibet’s godparents a secret, just like they did for their son Archie.

Prince Harry and Meghan announced the birth of their second child together, on the 4th of June, in an announcement that strayed from royal tradition.

The couple also revealed the name of their baby girl, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten Windsor, in a touching tribute to the Queen and Harry’s mother Princess Diana.

Though Lilibet’s name is a sentimental tribute to the Queen, she also has a lovely connection to Prince Philip. Little Lilibet is now the Queen’s 11th great-grandchild and 8th in the line of succession.

The Daily Telegraph has now reported that much like with Archie, Harry and Meghan will likely be keeping the identity of Lilibet’s godparents a secret. This move reportedly breaks royal protocol, as royal baby's godparents are usually announced to the public. 

Harry and Meghan revealed in their interview with Oprah, that they were not planning on having more than two children when they confirmed the gender. Harry also shared how delighted he was to have both a son and a daughter. 

In a statement on their Archewell website, announcing the birth of Lilibet they wrote, ‘She is more than we could have ever imagined.’
