She said, “To say the Queen is unhappy is, frankly, ridiculous. It’s also a nod to Meghan’s mother, Doria, her nickname for Meghan is flower.

“It’s also a bit of a stretch to say that the queen is angry that her great-grandson is named after her. I think it’s a token of affection. “

During a statement on Sunday (June 6), Meghan and Harry explained the meaning of their daughter’s name.

The statement reads: “Lili is named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty the Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet.

“Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honor her beloved late grandmother, the Princess of Wales.”
