Prince Harry loves his grandma and there are no two ways about it. So, when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex ushered in a great new addition—a beautiful little daughter— to their family, Queen Elizabeth was immediately called.

While credible reports are yet to specify the medium to connect on a video call with The Queen; Harry and Meghan reportedly couldn’t help contain their excitement as soon as she popped their second child at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital on June 4.

The infant was named Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, as a tribute to Harry’s grandmother The Queen and mother Princess Diana. Scores of royal fans were miffed and felt using Elizabeth’s nickname (Lilibet) was “rude”, but Harry’s allies had countered the criticism by stating that the Duke had sought permission from the Queen before going ahead.

Here’s another fun fact: Lilibet — “Lili” for short — as reported by Page Six, made her public bow in the pages of Meghan’s new children’s book, “The Bench,” as an illustration by California artist Christian Robinson.

Given how the Sussexes are settling in with the new arrival in their Montecito pad, insiders believe Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland will be visiting the royal couple and staying over to help them with the newborn. Ragland was however not around for the birth.

Despite things continuing to remain icy between Prince Charles and Harry, the Prince of Wales remarked the birth of his granddaughter as “such happy news” on Tuesday. Harry recently slammed his father’s parenting skills on the "Armchair Expert" podcast, and also blamed him for passing on “genetic pain” that he endured as a child. Harry revealed that making a shift to the United States was largely a personal choice to “break the cycle, ”as cited on

Charles, who’s likely to be the future king, has been evading conversations about Harry’s caustic remarks on his parenting, as evidenced in his stony silence upon being prodded about the same during a recently held tour of the new BCB international headquarters.

Sources are rife that Harry has however been warned against lambasting the Queen or portraying her in a negative light if he were to speak about her in the future.
