- Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced a new addition to their family with the birth of their second child, a baby girl, she's Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor. CBS's Elizabeth Palmer has more.

ELIZABETH PALMER: So far the only glimpse the world had of this baby was back in March, when she was a very visible bump during Meghan's explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey. Her parents, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex a.k.a. Harry and Meghan, now live in California after an acrimonious rift with the royal family that saw them cut most ties to Buckingham Palace. But the baby's name Lilibet Diana pays direct tribute to two towering royal figures. Queen Elizabeth herself, the baby's 95-year-old great grandmother, Lilibet was her family nickname. And Prince Harry's late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales. Harry and Meghan announced their new baby, 7 pounds, 11 ounces was born on Friday in Santa Barbara, a little sister for two-year-old Archie.
