Whatever Prince Harry and Meghan Markle do, is either royally wrong or wrong for the royals. It sounded very sweet when the run away royals named their new born daughter Lillibet, everyone seemed hopeful that the Royal Feud may just end.
But after leaving the Royal family voluntarily, the only thing that has paid off for the couple is controversy.
Meghan once tried to block the UK press over privacy concern, but went to Oprah and nothing remained private, in fact now people know things that did not actually happen, like marrying privately 3 days before the actual wedding.
Anyways now the proud parents got themselves into yet another controversy and this one is related to the name Lillibet that they have decided to call their daughter by.
Sources are claiming that the ex royals did not ask the Queen for permission to call their daughter Lilibet.
BBC royal correspondent Jonny Dymond reported on the broadcaster’s flagship Radio 4 “Today” program that the monarch was “never asked” her opinion on her grandson’s decision to name their second child after her.
The royal correspondent also tweeted stating
“Palace source tells BBC that the Queen was not asked by Meghan and Harry over the use of her childhood nickname; reports suggested Harry had sought permission from Queen to call newborn ‘Lilibet’; but Palace source says the Queen was ‘never asked’,”
Now there is nothing wrong with whatever name you choose for your new born but the claims by the couple is proving to be wrong again.
According to Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s the Queen was their first call following Lilibet’s birth on June 4 in Santa Barbara’s Cottage Hospital — and that she had given her blessing to use her childhood nickname.
Even a source close to sussex is standing with the claim that Harry’s family was informed about the birth and name before making things public.
“The Duke spoke with his family in advance of the announcement, in fact his grandmother was the first family member he called. During that conversation, he shared their hope of naming their daughter Lilibet in her honor. Had she not been supportive, they would not have used the name,”
The nickname “Lilibet” was coined by the 95-year-old monarch herself when she was a child — when she couldn’t pronounce her own name.
It was then used by her grandfather King George V and also by her late husband, Prince Philip, who died earlier this year.
We are just wondering why the Queen will give her blessing and then be furious over the use of her nickname, or its the media and sources making things up, the last possibility is Harry and Meghan are telling “downright lies” unless the Queen said yes and later forgot.
