Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been blessed with the second child, a baby girl. The couple announced he happy news on June 6 and revealed that they have named their new-born daughter ‘Lilibet’ Diana Windsor-Mountbatten.
While the controversies surrounding the name of the youngest royal have been making headlines lately, a close source to the Duke of Sussex has revealed that he had plans to honor his mother, Princess Diana, by naming daughter after her even before tying the knot to Markle.
‘Harry always wanted his daughter to be the Princess of Wales' namesake. He had wanted to name his future daughter after his mom long before he met Meghan [Markle],” a source told Page Six.
“Meghan was cognizant and fully supportive of that when they discussed potential names," they added.
Another inside source previously told the outlet that Harry and Meghan did not want their daughter’s first name to be Diana because they feared it would “make her a bigger target for the media."
They were, however, keen to keep the little angel's middle name after her late grandmother, Diana. Their daughter’s first name ‘Lilibet’ is a tribute to Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth.
