It was something that was sensed, that it could not be all of the Windsor branch. Since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s daughter was born last weekend, connections with other members of the British royal family have been made almost every day through her name, Lilibet Diana, with particular emphasis of course on Queen Elizabeth II and Lady Di, for the obvious.
However, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor’s little sister will be christened in a way that also pays tribute to one of the most important people for the former actress: his mother, Doria Ragland, since it has been clear all this time that she does not get along with her father or with the paternal branch in general.
As explained Page Six, Prince Harry personally called the monarch before his wife gave birth at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California, with the idea of asking her permission to put his daughter not Elizabeth, as many other members of the family have done. , otherwise Lilibet, the affectionate nickname with which the closest people know her to her.
The sovereign, we already know, accepted, although it is unknown if the Duke of Sussex let her know that there was a semi-hidden reason in that name. And it is that, as the marriage explained, his intention is to address his daughter as Lili, and there is the connection with Meghan Markle that the magazine has explained People.
The former actress and current philanthropist was not called Meghan by her mother when she was a child, but Flower (“Flower”), as she herself confessed in a post on her now-defunct lifestyle blog, The Tig. “Meg, MM, M&M and Flower (which is what my mother calls me since I was little)”, the Duchess wrote about what their nicknames have been.
Lili, as her daughter will be called, therefore sounds the same as “lily”, that is to say, “lily”, one of the most symbolic flowers in the lives of both, because this flower was one of the protagonists of the bridal bouquet that Meghan wore at the wedding in 2018 and which in turn, as a symbol of happiness and rebirth, was a tribute to the same flower that Diana of Wales wore at her wedding with Prince Charles. A name with a thousand ramifications but, above all, many roots in the most important women in the lives of the dukes.
