Queen ‘unhappy’ that ‘rude’ Meghan and Harry for used ‘very private’ nickname, expert says


Queen ‘unhappy’ that ‘rude’ Meghan and Harry for used ‘very private’ nickname, expert says


The Queen will be ‘desperately unhappy’ that Harry and Meghan chose her ‘very private’ and ‘special’ nickname Lilibet for their second child after being so ‘rude’ about the Royal Family, according to a royal expert.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced the birth of their daughter yesterday and revealed her name, which is Queen Elizabeth’s childhood nickname.

Some royal experts believe that naming her after the Queen is an olive branch to the Royal Family following recent issues.

Angela Levin, on the other hand, has slammed Meghan Markle and Prince Harry over their new baby’s name, Lilibet.

Today on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, the royal commentator chatted with Susanna Reid and co-host Richard Madeley.

Susanna said: “So, Angela, as Richard says, this is a very good news story this morning.


“There is no reason to criticise… or is there?”

Angela replied: “Well I think that it is wonderful – it is always amazing when a new baby is born. It is a miracle. Especially as she had a miscarriage in July and one feels so desperately lost by that.”

She continued: “So this is extremely happy and I would like to move the event out of the way of the name. I do not think it is a good idea and I think it is quite rude to Her Majesty The Queen.”

“Do you?” Susanna inquired.

And Ms Levin affirmed, adding, “It was a very private childhood nickname for the Queen from her dear husband Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, who of course has not been dead very long.

“Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, would never dream of referring to his mother as the nickname Lilibet. He would not refer to her as it – he has never used it. It was given to her by King George V, her grandfather, who was making a joke saying she could not say ‘Elizabeth’ when she was very small.”

Journalist Afua Adom, who was also on the programme, retorted: ‘To say the Queen would be unhappy is frankly ridiculous. It’s a bit of a nod to Meghan’s mother Doria as well, her nickname for Meghan is flower’.

She added: ‘It’s also a bit of a stretch to say that the Queen is fuming that her great grandchild is named after her. I think it’s a nod of affection’.

When Susanna pointed out that it hadn’t been precisely private because everyone knew the Queen’s nickname, Angela said, “It was his name, it was his special name.”

“I think it’s quite demeaning.”

Piers Morgan said Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to name their new baby daughter after the Queen as “ironic,” considering that the pair had spent weeks “trashing the Royal Family and the monarchy.”

The former GMB host was responding to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s announcement of the birth of Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, which appears to have taken Buckingham Palace off guard.

Meghan and Harry have also named the baby Diana after Harry’s “beloved” late mother, Princess Diana.

According to a statement on their Archewell website, “On June 4, we were blessed with the arrival of our daughter, Lili.”

“She is more than we could have ever imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we’ve felt from across the globe.

“Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family.”
