Prince Harry and Meghan’s daughter Lilibet ‘set for play dates’ with Katy Perry

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's newborn girl Lilibet Diana is set to grow up alongside some seriously A-List celebrity families – including Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom.

This comes after the Duke and Duchess welcomed their new baby daughter, called Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, in California on Friday.

In naming their daughter Lilibet Diana, the pair have paid tribute to Harry's mother and grandmother – as Lilibet is Queen Elizabeth II's favourite nickname whilst Diana refers to Harry's late mum, Princess Diana.

Harry and Meghan's baby name for Lilibet, who is the Queen's first great-grandchild to be born outside of the UK, has reportedly already been given Her Majesty's blessing.

After Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, decided to move permanently into their $14 million mansion in Montecito, California, Lilibet is now set to spend her first years with the children of Hollywood stars and sporting legends.

Among Harry and Meghan's famous pals are Orlando Bloom, 44, and Katy Perry, 36, who welcomed their daughter Daisy Dove in August 2020.

Prince Harry himself revealed the actor couple lives "just down the road" from him and Meghan, whilst chatting on Dax Shepard's Armchair Expert podcast last month.

Harry claims he and Bloom "keep in touch" over text, and originally became close after the actor tipped him off about a photographer in the area.

However, the Duke and Duchess could also be set to dig out the tennis rackets for a play date with tennis legend Serena Williams and her business titan husband Alexis Ohanian.

Three-year-old Alexis, known as Olympia, spends most of her time in Florida with her parents but Serena and Meghan often travel to support each other at big events.

For instance, Meghan flew to New York to cheer on Serena in the US Open in 2019 after the tennis star jetted over to the UK for her Windsor Castle wedding in 2018.

Meghan's Brit best friend Misha Nonoo may also be in the running for a royal playdate, as the fashion designer announced she is expecting last February – a matter of weeks after Meghan's own reveal.

The 36-year-old designer already has a son named Leo who was born in March last year, and is currently residing in New York with her oil heir husband Mikey Hess.

Rumour has it the pair are looking to relocate to California placing them much nearer Harry and Meghan, reports the Daily Mail.

Lilibet was born at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital on Friday 4 June at 11:40am, making her the Queen's 11th great-grandchild.

Proud parents Harry and Meghan said it was a "very special time" and described their new daughter as "more than we could have ever imagined".

Her older brother is two-year-old Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.
