Whereas Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s daughter Lilibet “Lili” Diana is lower than per week previous, her title is already on the heart of some conflicting chatter.
On Wednesday, June 9, the BBC reported, citing an unnamed Palace supply, that the proud dad and mom allegedly didn’t ask Queen Elizabeth II about naming their new child Lilibet, which as royal followers effectively know, is the monarch’s lifelong private nickname.
Harry and Meghan, nevertheless, swiftly denied the declare. In keeping with a spokesperson for the couple, earlier than asserting their daughter’s start, Harry referred to as his grandmother to start with his members of the family and shared his and Meghan’s want to title their child woman Lilibet in honor of the queen. They’d have used a unique title if Queen Elizabeth didn’t help the selection.
The sovereign will not be the one royal Lili is called after. “Her center title, Diana, was chosen,” the child’s start announcement defined, “to honor her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales.”
