It’s most definitely a busy time in Harry and Meghan’s household right now as the family has just grown by one – a little girl named Lilibet.

Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born on Friday morning in a hospital in Santa Barbara, California. A little sister to the pair’s two-year-old Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, it’s safe to say the doting parents are certainly up the walls as they adjust to becoming a family of four and parents yet again.

But all eyes and bets were recently on what the pair would call their daughter and it turns out the name chosen has more than just one meaning.

As we all know, the most obvious reason is because it’s the nickname of Queen Elizabeth – most commonly used when she was a child and as a term of endearment used by her husband, the late Prince Philip.

Earlier this year, the Queen even signed her last letter to Prince Philip as “Lilibeth” showing how special the nickname was to both of them. So, you can be sure she’s thrilled that the name is living on now with her great granddaughter.

The little girl’s middle name “Diana” is a tribute to Prince Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana and now, it turns out the name has another meaning.

The name also holds special meaning to Meghan and her mom, Doria Rgaland as People reports that “Flower” is what Meghan was called by her mom as a child and now her daughter’s nickname is a type of flower.

Lillies in particular are also a favourite flower of Meghan’s with them being ever present in her life and included in her bridal bouquet when she married Prince Harry in May 2018.

So there you have it, a name with lots of meaning. Well thought out Harry and Meghan, well thought out.
