“The Duke of Sussex spoke to his family before the public announcement. The Queen was the first person he called. During that conversation, he admitted that he wanted to name his daughter Lilibeth after her. And if his grandmother had not supported his wish, Harry would not have touched that name,” the lawyers said in an official statement. However, royal expert Penny Junor believes the Sussex’s have deceived the queen.
The author of several books about the royal family said that the domain name lilibetdiana.com was bought on the day of the call to Elizabeth, but a similar address – lilidiana.com – was registered as early as May 31.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle bought them so that in the future people would not profit from Lily. However, Junor believes that the couple decided to name their daughter Lilibeth long before the girl was born, and the monarch was simply presented with the fact. “Prince Harry clearly didn’t consult with the queen,” the Mirror reporter said.
At the same time, it is reported that the queen does not hold a grudge against Meghan and Harry. Media noted that on her desk still stands a portrait of the couple.
