The relationship of the couple and the royal family has been making headlines in recent months

A royal source told the BBC that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had not “consulted” Queen Elizabeth before naming their daughter Lillipet.

The source had denied reports that appeared in the wake of the birth of Prince Harry and Megan’s daughter, who said they had asked the Queen before choosing this name for their daughter.

Prince Harry’s spokesman said that if the Queen had not agreed to this, the couple would not have used that name, adding that “the Duke spoke to his family before the announcement, and in fact his grandmother was the first person in the family to call him (Harry).”

“During that conversation, he hoped they would name their daughter Lillipet after her,” he said. “If she (the Queen) didn’t agree, they wouldn’t have used the name.”
