Meghan Markle has given her first update on baby Lilibet on her New York, describing her new born daughter as “beautiful”.
Meghan and husband Prince Harry are in New York for a number of official engagements, their first public trip since quitting the UK for California and stepping down as senior royals.
Yesterday, the pair made appearances around New York City and met with political figures, including the New York mayor Bill de Blasio and the US ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield.
Since Lilibet’s birth in July, the couple have not released any images of the youngster but Meghan confirmed earlier that her daughter is beautiful, as we get that first update.
But as they walked between engagements yesterday, one reporter from Inside Edition called out to the couple, asking: “Meghan, how’s Lilibet?”
And Meghan simply replied: “She’s beautiful.”
Another also asked: “How’s Archie?”, to which Meghan gave a big thumbs up.
There has been speculation about the plans for baby Lilibet’s christening, as the Duke and Duchess of Success are yet to make an announcement of the plans.

The couple’s tour of New York continues today with Meghan appearing at a school in Harlem, where she read the young pupils her book The Bench.
Once the meeting was over, Harry and Meghan clutched each other’s hands as they walked to the 9/11 Memorial nearby.
Later they met with the US ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, who later wrote on Twitter that they had an “important discussion” that included the pandemic, racial justice and raising awareness of mental health.
Tomorrow, the couple will appear at the 24-hour star-studded global TV event Global Citizen Live in Central Park.
At the event, they will “continue their urgent work with world leaders in the pursuit of global vaccine equity to end the Covid-19 pandemic for everyone, everywhere”.
The event organisers call them “two of the strongest voices on vaccine equity”.
