The baby’s name pays tribute to both Harry’s grandmother, 伊丽莎白女王二世, whose family nickname is Lilibet, and his late mother, 戴安娜王妃.

Royal historian Robert Lacey told the outlet it was especially important for Harry, 36, to pay tribute to the reigning monarch, 95.

She was a sort of stepmother for both Harry and William [after Diana died],” 他解释. “We have all focused on her coaching William as the future king, but we are realizing now the importance of the emotional bonds that she’s been able to establish with Harry, and their ability to talk to each other directly. That affection remains.

A source also claimed to the outlet that after the couple returned home from the hospital, they quickly introduced Elizabeth to her namesake via a video call.

They were very excited and couldn’t wait to share that their daughter arrived,” the source alleged.
