Meghan Markle and Prince Harry kept the birth of their daughter, Lilibet Diana, strictly under the wraps.

This is the reason the couple did not share any details of the process until two days after the actual birth.

As revealed by an insider to PEOPLE, "Meghan and Harry are both very thankful for how smoothly things went. They could enjoy the birth in peace."

Meghan and Harry said they welcomed their baby girl at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.

"They looked at several hospitals before they settled on the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital," the source added. "Meghan loves that it's female-founded."

"Security and privacy were also priorities," the insider concluded. "They had a big security team that the hospital needed to accommodate."
