Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess recently welcomed their baby girl.

They paid tribute to Her Majesty and Harry’s late mother Princess Diana with their daughter’s name.

A statement on their Archewell website read: “Lili is named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet.

“Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honor her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales.”

Harry and Meghan recently hit back at reports they didn’t ask the Queen if they could use the name Lilibet for their daughter.

A spokesperson for the couple told the BBC: “The Duke spoke with his family in advance of the announcement, in fact his grandmother was the first family member he called.

“During that conversation, he shared their hope of naming their daughter Lilibet in her honor.”

The rep said had the Queen not been supportive, then Harry and Meghan “would not have used the name”.
