Carrie Bickmore reveals why Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may expose their daughter to schoolyard taunts with her unique name Lilibet
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their second child, a daughter named Lilibet, earlier this week.
And the royal baby’s name has certainly surprised some people, including Australian radio hosts Tommy Little and Carrie Bickmore.
During an episode of their Hit Network show Carrie and Tommy, the pair pointed out an awkward detail in Lilibet’s name.

According to Tommy, the name sounds extremely similar to ‘little bit’.
‘Do you wanna finish the name or do you just want to give me a little bit?’ he joked with co-host Carrie.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their daughter, Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, on Friday in California. They announced the news on Sunday.
The baby’s name is also catching attention because certain royals didn’t use Harry and Meghan’s royal titles when acknowledging Lilibet’s birth.

Omitting Harry and Meghan’s royal titles could be interpreted as a subtle hint they are no longer considered part of the Royal Family.
Indeed, Prince William and Kate Middleton referred to the Sussexes by their first names in an official congratulatory message on Instagram.
They wrote: ‘We are all delighted by he happy news of the arrival of baby Lili. Congratulations to Harry, Meghan and Archie.’

Harry’s father, Prince Charles, and his wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles, similarly failed to use the Sussexes’ royal titles in their message.
‘Congratulations to Harry, Meghan and Archie on the arrival of baby Lilibet Diana,’ they wrote on social media.
The Queen, however, did refer to the couple as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in her official statement, perhaps subtly indicating their relationship remains intact.
