Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s daughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, has finally been added to the Royal Family’s line of succession website.
Despite the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepping down from royal duties, their daughter Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor is still eighth in line to the throne.
However, the Royal Family’s website took time to update the line of succession to reflect her birth on June 4.
After almost 2 months, the website was updated to include Lilibet.
Prince Harry and Meghan’s biographer, Omid Scobie, made the announcement on Twitter, writing: “The the line of succession on the @RoyalFamily website has just been updated to include the Sussexes’ second child: Miss Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor, who is eighth in line to the throne. She was born on June 4.”
As of last week, when Lilibet had not been included in the line of succession, ITV Royal Editor Chris Ship said that the Royal Family was perhaps “making a point”.
Speaking on the Royal Rota podcast, he said: “You have got to ask what has taken them so long. All they have got to do is hit the paragraph button and put in a different number.
“They must have done it before. They did it for Archie. Clearly, they did it for Louis when he was born. And they have done it for some of the other children like August that have been born as well.
“So where’s Lilibet? I can forgive them a week or two but a month?”
