Royal baby

Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, welcomed their daughter on June 4, 2021.

Royalty has come to America in the form of Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.

The daughter of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, born Friday, will be the subject of a new ABC News special, “The American Royal Baby,” premiering Monday on Hulu.

“‘The American Royal Baby’ will provide a glimpse of the potentially glamorous California life ahead for the first American-born royal baby girl, spotlight how she will fit into the royal family and the line of succession and reflect on the legacy Princess Diana leaves for her grandchildren,” ABC said in a press release Monday.

“The special will also explore when Harry and Meghan might have their daughter meet Uncle Will and Aunt Kate and who will be a part of her new ‘extended family,’ from godparent guesses to celebrity playdates, and examine how Harry and Meghan are fighting to provide their new daughter and Archie a stable life.”

The hourlong special is anchored by ABC News senior national correspondent Deborah Roberts, along with correspondent Kaylee Hartung, foreign correspondent Maggi Rulli from London, plus “GMA3: What You Need to Know” and “20/20” co-anchor Amy Robach, foreign correspondent James Longman and contributor Lama Hasan.

The happy couple, already parents to 2-year-old Archie, announced Lili’s birth Sunday.

“She is more than we could have ever imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we’ve felt from across the globe,” they said in a statement. “Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family.”

The baby, named after her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and grandmother, the late Princess Diana, is eighth in line to the throne.
