Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their new baby daughter Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor to the world over the weekend, after the Duchess of Sussex gave birth to her on Friday 4 June. But while many have celebrated the wonderful arrival, royal biographer Angela Levin slammed the name as “distasteful” and a “terrible invasion” The Queen’s privacy. In a brutal attack, Ms Levin insisted the decision by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex was “terrible” and branded Harry as “cunning” for choosing the name.
She said: “I actually think it is a terrible invasion of the Queen’s privacy.
“This was a special name that her grandfather King George IV gave her when she was very small.
“She could not say Elizabeth… she used to say Lilibet.
“And then the Duke of Edinburgh picked this up and called it to her.”

The royal biographer said: “I think she’s desperately unhappy (The Queen) because they were desperately rude about her, I don’t think it’s a good idea, I think it’s quite rude to her Majesty the Queen.
“It was a very private nickname from her husband who hasn’t been dead for very long.”
Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born on 4th June 2021 to Meghan and Harry, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
She is the couples’ second baby and first daughter after Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
