Meghan Markle to give first interview since welcoming daughter Lilibet

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their second child on June 4

Meghan Markle will give her first interview since welcoming her second child with Prince Harry this weekend.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed a daughter, named Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, on June 4.

According to royal biographer Omid Scobie, the 39-year-old will speak about her new children’s book, The Bench, on NPR’s Weekend Edition this Sunday.

Announcing the news on Twitter, he wrote: “Fresh off the heels of her first children’s book becoming a certified #1 New York Times bestseller, Duchess Meghan will be giving her only interview about #TheBench to @samanthabalaban at the renowned @NPRWeekend show, this Sunday between 8am-10am Eastern.”

This will be Meghan’s first time speaking publicly since the birth of her daughter, Lilibet Diana, on June 4.

Meghan and Prince Harry’s baby girl is affectionately named after his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, and his late mother Princess Diana.

A statement shared on their behalf on June 6 read: “It is with great joy that Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, welcome their daughter, Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, to the world.”
