Meghan Markle and Prince Harry showed their daughter, baby Lilibet Diana to her great-grandmother, who’s also her namesake, Queen Elizabeth II, on a video call, not long after the baby arrived, according to People Magazine.
The report also said that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were very excited and couldn’t wait to share with the Queen that the baby has arrived, as they called the Monarch immediately after the successful delivery at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.
The actual video platform that was used to convey the message was not specified, but suggesting that it could be Zoom might not be completely out of place since Harry made reference to Zoom in February while talking about how the Queen and her late husband Prince Philip were keeping in contact with his family digitally.
Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor joined her royal family on June 4. While some fans of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex commended them for their choice of name … saying it would keep the Queen’s name going even after she’s gone, royal commentator Angela Levin describes the choice of “Lilibet”, Elizabeth’s nickname as “rude.”
Although Prince Harry asked for permission from the Queen before naming his child “Lilibet.”
Meanwhile, another royal source opined, “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.”
Lilibet Diana’s grandmother, Meghan Markle’s mom Doria Ragland, is currently helping her daughter and son-in-law Harry with the baby at their private mansion in Calif., even though she wasn’t present when the child was born.
It’s safe to say that baby Lilibet is taking on her first royal assignment already… uniting the royal family with her previously angered paternal grandfather, Prince Charles, calling her birth “such happy news” on Tuesday. All other members of the royal family have shared their joy over Lili’s arrival.
