The former prince Harry has been getting himself into countless trouble lately – some deliberate, some not. The naming of his daughter, Lilibet, he should have known would be disrespectful – states one Royal author.
According to reports published by Conventry Telegraph, royal author, Tom Quinn, claims that the former prince Harry and Meghan’s Markle’s choice to call their second child Lilibet would have knowingly been a ‘disrespectful’ decision.
Lilibet was born in June of the year of our Lord, 2021. At this time, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex settled on the name Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, in a nod to the little one’s great-grandmother as a touching surprise.
Author Tom Quinn claims that the former prince Harry would have already been aware that calling her this would be perceived to many as “disrespectful and instructive” to the late monarch. It is because when Queen Elizabeth II was a toddler, she had difficulty pronouncing her full name, often just referring to herself as Lilibet.
But this name stuck and was used as her nickname in the years that followed – including by the Queen Mother and King George VI, and her late husband Prince Philip. However, in Mr Quinn’s new book, Gilded Youth An Intimate History of Growing Up in the Royal Family he says “naming this child sparked a diplomatic scuffle.”
