Lilibet gave birth on Friday to Diana, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle’s second baby. And by name, they also paid tribute to someone you may not think of at first sight of the first name.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced last night that their second child was born on Friday. “ Prince Harry and Meghan, Prince, and Princess of Sussex are very pleased to welcome Lilibet‘ Lili ’Diana Mountbatten-Windsor to the world. Lili was born on Friday, June 4, at 11:40 a.m. in the trusted care of doctors and staff at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, California. It weighed 7 pounds 11 ounces (3 kg 48 dkg – ed.). Both mother and child are healthy and well and have been able to return home, ”the couple said in a statement.
In the sequel, Harry and Meghan also revealed that the name Lilibet refers to the nickname of Queen Elizabeth, while her second name is, of course, a tribute to her grandmother, Princess Diana. However, it does not turn out that the little girl’s name even has a secret meaning. Because the couple also commemorated the name choice before the late grandfather of Prince Harry, Prince Philip.
Yes, Lilibet is the queen’s family nickname she got from her parents as a child after she couldn’t pronounce her own name. Over the years, he stuck to it, but in the end, only one person remained who II. He called Elizabeth Lilibet: Prince Philip. The fact that Harry and Meghan not only smoothly named their daughter Lily, or that they would have fallen to another version of Elizabeth (such as Eliza), but specifically chose the nickname used by the Philippines, shows that in addition to Harry’s grandmother, they also saluted his grandfather.
