Breaking News: Queen Elizabeth II Furious After Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s “Lilibet” Name Debacle!
In a shocking turn of events, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have allegedly left the late Queen Elizabeth II rolling in her royal grave with a fib that had a more significant impact than a squirrel invasion at Buckingham Palace.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who had previously bid adieu to the royal life and set up camp in the land of burgers and Hollywood glitz, welcomed their second bundle of joy, Princess Lilibet, in June 2021. Fast forward to September 2022, and the Queen was reportedly “as angry as I’d ever seen her,” according to an insider who may or may not have been sipping on the royal tea.
According to the latest royal tell-all by the master of palace gossip, Robert Hardman, titled “Charles III: New King, New Court. The Inside Story,” the royal duo claimed that little Lili was named after her great-grandma, the Queen, affectionately known as Lilibet within the family. Cue dramatic gasps and a royal eyeroll.
The announcement, made in true Hollywood blockbuster fashion, stated, “Lili is named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet.” However, it seems the Queen was not amused by this blatant case of name-dropping, especially considering she was no longer around to confirm or deny the narrative.
In response to allegations that they didn’t run the name by her Royal Highness for approval, Harry and Meghan’s spokesperson was quick to unleash a legal thunderstorm. They boldly declared that Prince Harry “spoke with his family in advance,” and the Queen was the VIP call on his family contact list. The rep even threw in a spicy warning that if Her Majesty hadn’t given them the thumbs up, Lili would have been stuck with a name like Princess Pickles or something equally outrageous.
Hardman spilled the royal beans, stating that the Sussexes, in their quest for name approval, sent out legal threats faster than the Queen’s corgis chasing a royal biscuit. Unfortunately for them, the Palace wasn’t in the mood to play backup dancers to their version of events, leaving the couple to fend for themselves in the comedic court of public opinion.
It seems that yet again, the royal scriptwriters are chanting the mantra of “recollections may vary.” Oh, the drama!
