Meghan Markle and Prince Harry became parents for the second time with a daughter and her name has been embroiled in a controversy after the couple decided for her to have both names of reigning UK Queen and Harry’s late mother.
Their daughter is called Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor. She is the Queen’s 11th great-grandchild and is eighth in line to the throne. Her middle name was chosen to honour her late grandmother, Diana, Princess of Wales while Lilibet is Queen’s childhood nickname.
Now, sources report that the name has not been chosen after consultation with the Queen even though it has her childhood nickname. While the name clearly shows that it is an attempt to mend the couple’s rift with the Royal family, reports prove contradictory.
It was reported that he said “a good palace source” was “absolutely adamant” that Lili’s name had not been run by the Queen.
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Meghan and Harry insisted the Queen was told in advance about the name and that they would not have gone ahead with the name if the Queen had disapproved.
