Harry knew naming his daughter Lilibet was ‘disrespectful’ to the Queen and would ’cause trouble,’ author claims

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s choice to name their daughter Lilibet after Queen Elizabeth has stirred controversy. Harry, in his memoir “Spare,” criticized the Royal Family but also shared details about his children’s births. Archie’s birth was closely guarded from the media, while Lilibet’s was kept private as the couple had moved to California.

Critics argued that naming their daughter Lilibet, the Queen’s childhood nickname, was presumptuous and risked causing trouble. Royal expert Tom Quinn believes Harry should have foreseen the issue, despite his intentions to pay tribute. Gyles Brandreth suggested the Queen was “touched” by the gesture, but her true feelings remain undisclosed.

This naming choice highlights a cultural divide between American and UK norms. While Meghan may have seen it as a compliment, some in the UK considered it impertinent. The debate continues over whether Harry and Meghan made the right choice.
