Unlike her cousins, Lilibet Diana, the daughter of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, will not have a royal title. A fact that could be re-evaluated in a few years.
She was born this Friday, June 4, with a name heavy with meaning. Two days after the birth of their first daughter, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry shared the news with the world. Lilibet Diana came into the world in the strictest privacy, at the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California. A birth that delighted the members of the Crown, who were quick to congratulate the Sussex on social networks. If this birth is historic for the royal family, the little Lili will not carry a title of nobility, unlike her cousins George, Charlotte and Louis.
Eighth in the order of succession to the British throne, Lilibet should not play a crucial role in the royal chessboard. While her older brother is called Master Archie Harrison, the Sussex daughter should be known as Miss Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, without the title of princess. But Lilibet can later get a title when Prince Charles becomes king, since she will then be a granddaughter of a monarch. Meghan and Harry’s daughter would also have the right to bear the title of “Lady”, like Lady Louise Windsor, the daughter of Prince Edward, the last son of Elizabeth II.
Harry’s mother and grandmother honored
While tensions between Prince Harry and members of his family are particularly high since the departure of the Sussexes in California, he nevertheless wanted to honor his grandmother by calling his daughter by the nickname given to Queen Elizabeth II. An attention that has undoubtedly touched the sovereign, who issued a statement to congratulate the Sussexes of this new addition to the family. For several months, rumors evoked the name Diana to pay tribute to the late mother of Prince Harry … Rumors that have been confirmed with the arrival of Lilibet Diana!
