Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's daughter has finally been included in the line of succession.

Lilibet 'Lili' Diana, named after her grandmother and great-grandmother, was born on 4 June in California to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The second child of Harry and Meghan has been placed 8th in the line of succession below her father, and brother Archie.
