Harry would not ask the queen for permission to call her daughter Lilibet

Prince Harry e Meghan Markle they decided to call their newborn daughter Lilibet Diana, in homage to his grandmother Elizabeth and her mother who tragically passed away in 1997, but it seems that the Queen has never been asked for permission to use her nickname. This was revealed by a source from Buckingham Palace to the BBC, denying previous claims that appeared in the media.

Harry wouldn’t tell his grandmother about the name

The BBC itself, in fact, had previously heard a source close to Harry and Meghan, according to which the second son of Charles and Diana would have spoken with the queen before the birth of the child and “would have mentioned“the name chosen for the little girl. The palace version is different, with the insider assuring that the queen” has never been asked “to use the name Lilibet. Therefore, the couple decided to surprise the sovereign, with whose relations would remain affectionate despite the expulsion from the United Kingdom?

Lilibet Diana’s name was chosen as a tribute to Harry’s family, although the prince decided to leave the Royal family and move with his wife and other son Archie to Los Angeles, giving up the monarchy’s income (resulting in insertion into the world of work) and accusing Buckingham Palace of episodes of racism against Markle. Could the choice of name be a relaxing gesture towards grandmother? Queen Elizabeth was called Lilibet when she was still a child and could not pronounce Elizabeth: this is how her grandfather, King George V affectionately called her. It was also the nickname she used towards her Filippo, her husband who died at 99 in April.

The Queen invites Harry to lunch (but not Meghan)

Despite Meghan and Harry’s shocking interview with Oprah Winfrey with accusations of racism and the difficult relationship between him and his father Carlo, Harry would have a “very good” relationship with the Queen, with whom would speak regularly on video call. Moreover, the prince immediately denied that the alleged episode of discrimination against his wife had somehow involved Elizabeth II. Confirming mutual affection is the fact that the Queen invited her grandson for lunch at Windsor Castle in July, when Harry returns for the unveiling of a statue dedicated to his mother Diana. On the contrary, however, Meghan Markle does not appear to have been invited.
