Proud parents Meghan Markle and Prince Harry introduced their new arrival to the Queen in a post-hospital video call, sources claim.
Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born on Friday, June 4 in California and was named in tribute to both Her Majesty and harry's late mum Princess Diana.
Both mum and baby are said to be doing well after the delivery.
Royal sources have claimed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were so excited to share the news with Lilibet's namesake great-grandmother that they introduced the newborn to Her Majesty in a video call.
An insider told People: "They were very excited and couldn't wait to share that their daughter arrived."
A spokesperson for the couple added that big brother Archie "is very happy to have a little sister."
Meghan and Harry announced the arrival of their daughter on Sunday, June 6 with a statement which reads: "On June 4th, we were blessed with the arrival of our daughter, Lili.
"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.

"Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family.”
The Queen was reportedly delighted with the news as the Palace said: “The Queen, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been informed and are delighted with the news of the birth of a daughter for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.”
However, not everyone believes the Queen is so pleased with the baby girl's name as one royal expert branded it an "invasion of privacy" for the sovereign.
Lilibet was famously a pet name of the monarch, and she even signed her final note to late husband Prince Philip with it at his funeral in April.
Her Majesty's biographer Sally Bedell Smith claims the Queen had "no choice" but to accept the baby's name as she is "walking on eggshells" around the couple, OK reports.
But insiders have said Prince Harry sought the blessing of his grandmother before naming his second child Lilibet, though sources now say the request was not formal or in keeping with tradition.
