Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their second child, a baby girl called Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, one week ago. While Meghan and Harry stated that they sought permission from the Queen before giving their daughter a nickname, a palace insider has recently told the BBC that they never did.
Rebecca English, a royal expert, is now stepping out, claiming that the royal family is now “standing up” to Meghan and Harry in their feud.

According to The Express, she remarked of the palace’s response, “Absolutely, it is incredibly significant.”
“The Sussexes have responded to the BBC report with a sharp retort. First, through a spokesman who stated that the Queen was the first person they contacted and that they would not have proceeded with the name unless the Queen was supportive.”
“However, they issued a legal threat through their attorneys, labeling the BBC item was defamatory,” she continued. “We don’t know whether this was a planned release by Buckingham Palace or the Royal Family, or if it was a renegade courtier. When I approached the Palace about it, no one there slammed it or disagreed with what the BBC had to say, so the report has a lot of credibilities. The BBC is unwavering in its support for its story. Who knows if this will work?”
When she was a youngster, the Queen was given the nickname “Lilibet” since that was how she called her name because she couldn’t speak “Elizabeth.” Her grandfather, King George V, and her late husband, Prince Philip, who died barely two months ago, also used the nickname. The Queen is likely “puzzled” by the decision to name her great-grandchild Lilibet, according to renowned royal expert Ingrid Seward.
