After a hot few months, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made a clear offer to strengthen family ties with the name of their newborn daughter.
The couple have been open about their treatment behind the palace walls – and why they were forced to leave the royal family in 2020. However, Page Six it is said that the first thing they did after the birth of baby Lilibet Diana on June 4th was the Queen and the rest of the family, including Harry’s Father, Prince Charles, and his older brother, Prince William, called.
Despite serious allegations against the family – including allegations that a member asked what color their children would be – Harry and Meghan insisted that they be the Queen Show nothing but love and respect.
Lilbet is the childhood nickname of the queen. The nickname dates back to when the queen was too young to pronounce her own name and instead called herself « Lilibet ».
Her parents and grandparents soon adopted the nickname that the queen’s father, George, was nicknamed VI, once quoted when he said: “Lilibet is my pride. Margaret is my joy. ”‘
As a young king she signed letters with this abbreviated form of Elizabeth. For example, in a letter of thanks to her grandmother, Queen Mary, she wrote, “Darling Grandma. Thank you for the lovely dollhouse. I love it, and I unpacked the dining room and hallway. Greetings from Lilibet xxx. ”
Legendary royal photographer Arthur Edwards pointed out that her late husband, Prince Philip, always called her Lilbet, as did her mother, the Queen Mother, and her sister, Princess Margaret. </ Edwards wrote after Philip's death in April at the age of 99: “Later, when I saw these haunting television images of the Queen in Black sitting all alone in the Chapel Quire, it dawned on me that there is no one left in the world 'Lilibet'. ”
The naming of baby Lilbet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor means the Queen’s nickname will live on as the birth announcement statement read: » Lili is after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty the Queen , whose family name is Lilibet. «
During their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, the couple discussed the state of their relationship with Her Majesty.
After Markle remembered their » lovely « first meeting, besta The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are anxious not to blind the Queen when they announced their royal departure in January 2020. I have too much respect for her, « said Harry.
At another point in the interview, Harry revealed, » I’ve talked to my grandmother more in the last year than in many, many years. «
He affirmed also that they made some Zoom calls with their 2 year old son Archie.
« My grandmother and I have a really good relationship and understanding. I have a lot of respect for her, ”he said. « She’s my Commander-in-Chief, isn’t she? »
Markle also announced that she called the Queen personally after learning that Prince Philip had been hospitalized.
« I’m earlier than this morning H woke up to see a message from someone on our team in the UK saying the Duke of Edinburgh had gone to the hospital, but I just picked up the phone and called the Queen to see, « in, » said Markle to Oprah. « That’s what we do. »
Lilbet’s middle name, Diana, is of course a tribute to Princess Diana, who died in a tragic car accident in Paris in August 1997 at the age of 36.
Harry was open about the toll her death took on him and how he sought therapy for his grief.
In his new AppleTV series « The Me You Can’t See » he told Winfrey that he had panic attacks and was in Binge drinking and drug addiction as he struggled with the helplessness of not being able to save his mother.
« I was ready to drink, I was ready to do drugs, I was ready to try the things that made me feel like I was feeling less, « Harry confessed.
He recently revealed that » Grandma « was one of Archie’s first words. “I have a photo of her in his nursery and it was one of the first words he said – apart from ‘mom’, ‘dad’, it was ‘grandma’ in documentaries.
He also said he panicked about losing Markle like his mother after confessing she felt suicidal.
The newborn Lilbet also shares a middle name with her cousin, daughter by William and Kate Middleton, Princess Charlotte, whose full name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.
