Sources close to the Royal Family report that Queen Elizabeth II did not appreciate the choice of the name Lilibet Diana for the daughter of Harry and Meghan: here’s why.
It was finally born there second child of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle as well as the little sister of the little one Archie, who is now 2 years old: Lilibet Diana she came into the world on June 4th but is already making a lot of talk about herself. Starting with the name, which remained secret until the last and which seems to be not not appreciated at all, in particular from the Queen Elizabeth II.
Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana: as the Queen’s nickname
The decision of the new Dukes of Sussex parents on the name given to their second daughter has done and is still doing a lot of discussion. Lilibet Diana. Harry and Meghan’s choice was totally based on the Royal Family’s past: Lilibet was the nickname of Her Majesty the Queen, who was affectionately called this way by only two people. The father King George and her husband Filippo, who recently passed away, were in fact the only two family members authorized to call her that.
The second name “Diana” is instead a direct reference to Harry’s mother, who died prematurely and tragically when he was only 13 years old.
Despite the constant declarations of wanting to detach from the Royal Family, it seems that, on the contrary, the Dukes of Sussex want to continue the family tradition.
Their choice was definitely defined contradictory: just a few months ago accused the queen of racism (“They were worried about Archie’s skin color. Who? We will not name names“, Meghan had declared to Oprah Winfrey, raising a fuss) and today they find themselves giving the same name to their second and last daughter in her honor.
Lilibet Diana, the opinion of the public
The web and the Royal Family fans are there divided into two factions: who supports the choice of the couple and who, instead, considers it a lack of respect. In fact, if for someone the name Lilibet Diana wants to be a gift and a way to regain the trust and esteem of the Royal Family, for others it is just a great act of pimping, as well as a lack of respect towards the Queen, on the verge of taking around. He is also of this opinion Angela Levin, expert writer of the Royal Family who commented: “It is a personal and private nickname. It was a rude and humiliating choice, just think that Prince Charles would never dream of calling his mother Lilibet“.
The RAI correspondent in London Antonio Caprarica also commented on the choice: “There is a large measure of hypocrisy in this name: the desire to signal a belonging to a royal family which, however, continues to be criticized. Is it a sign of reconciliation? For me, more a strong signal to reiterate that they are still part of this history even if on the other side of the ocean“.
There are still conflicting rumors also regarding Queen Elizabeth II: some claim that she had been warned, others instead of the name was revealed to the rest of the family at the same time as it was revealed to the press, thus keeping the queen in the dark until the very end.
One thing is certain: on the occasion of the inauguration of the statue for Lady D on July 1st the whole family will meet in London and the eyes of the whole world will be on them.
