Meghan Markle has given her first update on her daughter Lilibet as she described her baby girl as 'beautiful'.

The Duchess of Sussex, who looked stunning in red as she arrived at a school in Harlem to read her children's book, The Bench, gave the update on three month old Lilbet Diana during her three-day tour of New York City alongside husband Prince Harry.

Meghan, 40, and Harry, 37, are believed to have left two year old son Archie and daughter Lilibet at home in Montecito, California, and have so far met with various leaders keen to spread their intentions of raising awareness of mental health during their tour.

The couple welcomed their first daughter Lilibet in June but have not shared any pictures of the baby girl or many updates on the newborn.

However, as the couple, who marked their first public appearance together since the birth Lilibet by paying a visit to the One World Trade Centre in New York on Thursday 23 September, a reporter from Inside Edition asked: "Meghan, how's Lilibet?"

The mum-of-two sweetly replied: "Beautiful."

Meghan also gave a thumb's up after another reporter asked about Archie.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are staying at the Carlyle hotel which is also known as the ‘Tower of Power’ due to its influential clientele.


Princess Diana originally visited New York in 1989 for a three day long solo royal tour. She liked it so much that she returned in 1996 following her divorce from Prince Charles.

It was reported at the time that she stayed in the 1,800 square foot 'Royal Suite' on the 22nd floor.

In a 2018 documentary about the famous hotel, it's claimed that the Princess stayed in the hotel at the same time as Michael Jackson and Steve Jobs and once all three shared a lift.

The hotel is a favourite of the royals, and Kate Middleton and Prince William have also stayed there – most notably in 2014 when they attended a series of royal engagements in the city.

During the trip, Meghan and Harry have used their platform to speak openly about their mental health.

After meeting the couple during their tour, The New York City mayor said: “They’re good people and they’re really committed to the world.

“I got a great vibe, particularly the work that they’re doing on mental health … I think the prince makes a great point when he says, ‘mental fitness,’ calling it ‘mental fitness’ as a positive aspirational idea. That was one of the things we talked about. I really admire what they’re both doing on that.”
