Queen Elizabeth warns courtiers she’d retaliate over Lili’s name fiasco
LONDON – Queen Elizabeth came forth warning the courtiers she will strike back in case of any falsehood is reported over Meghan Markle, Prince Harry’s daughter’s name row. According to British media on Tuesday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex named their daughter after the Queen’s private nickname Lilibet without her permission.
The monarch has instructed courtiers to let go of their ‘never complain, never explain’ policy when it comes to private conversations between members of the royal family.
An insider told Mail, “This is about whether or not what is being reported is an accurate version of what actually happened.” Upon birth of Lili, Meghan and Harry announced 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 honour her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales.”
