As the Daily Mail reported, Princess Eugenie wasn’t the only royal family member to congratulate the couple. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge said they are “delighted” by the announcement. “We are delighted by the happy news of the arrival of baby Lili. Congratulations to Harry, Meghan and Archie,” Prince William and Kate Middleton wrote in a statement.
