    Queen Elizabeth Was “Angry As They’d Ever Seen Her” Over Prince Harry and Meghan’s Daughter’s Name Approval Claims

    After Prince Harry and Meghan Markle severed their ties with the royal family, the drama in the already twisted history of the royals piqued. The royal family has a history of difficult relationships, with many banished from the family for various reasons. Even after Queen Elizabeth’s death, the bond between the royal family and Prince Harry remains damaged.

    Moreover, Prince Harry’s recently released memoir ‘Spare’ has made things worse for the relationship between him and his family. Adding a brand new twist to the story, reports now reveal that the Queen was not pleased when the couple publicly announced that she had approved their daughter’s name.

    While the world is still making its peace with the royal family secrets that Prince Harry’s memoir ‘Spare‘ uncovered, a forthcoming biography titled ‘Charles III: New King. New Court. The Inside Story’ is set to spark more controversy. A BBC report suggests that the book details how Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s announcement of their daughter’s name, Lilibet, had angered the Queen.

    The book reportedly contains revelations from a royal aide who claims that Queen Elizabeth II was furious when Harry and Meghan publicly declared that the Queen had approved Lilibet’s name. The incident gains more significance as Lilibet was also Queen Elizabeth’s childhood nickname.

    The insider further details that the Queen was as “angry as they’d ever seen her” upon hearing the claim made by Harry and Meghan. However, the assertion contradicts reports from two years ago when a palace source informed the BBC that the Queen was never consulted about the use of her childhood nickname for the newborn.

    Palace source tells BBC that the Queen was not asked by Meghan and Harry over the use of her childhood nickname; reports suggested Harry had sought permission from Queen to call newborn ‘Lilibet’; but Palace source says the Queen was ‘never asked,'” a tweet by BBC royal correspondent Jonny Dymond from two years ago has said.

    It was also claimed at the time that Harry made a call to the Queen after Lilibet’s birth at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. The nature of the conversation, however, is disputed.

    An insider informed Page Six at the time that it was more of an informative call. “It will have likely been a call saying that she’s arrived and we’d plan to name her after you, it’s not really something one can say no to. I doubt they asked, more likely informed,” the source was quoted as saying.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had officially announced Lilibet’s birth with gratitude for the global support. They had also provided an explanation for the choice of name in a statement. “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,” the statement said at the time.

    As there’s still a lot of controversy around Prince Harry’s memoir, the public now awaits the release of the upcoming biography which has already triggered controversy even before its release.
