Gyles Brandreth noted: “Others in the family found the choice ‘bewildering’ and ‘rather presumptuous’, given that ‘Lilibet’ as a name had always been intimately and exclusively the Queen’s.
“Later, the Queen said: ‘I hear they’re calling her ‘Lili’, which is very pretty and seems just right.'”
Speaking on one episode of her podcast Archetype, the Duchess of Sussex said that welcoming daughter Lilibet had changed her view of what makes a good role model.

She said: “I first just had Archie, now I’m a mum of a daughter. Whether I thought it was going to happen or not, it did.
“I see the world differently through how she is going to see the world and how she is going to look at certain women as role models.”
On the recent podcast episode, Meghan spoke of the family’s chaotic morning routine.
Ms Garibaldi said: “To add to the chaos, her 16-month-old daughter has started walking.

The mother-of-two said, on her podcast Archetypes: “[Lilibet’s] a year and a couple of months old. In the thick of it. Toddling.”
In an earlier episode of Archetypes, Meghan revealed how she would feel if Archie and Lilibet grew up and wanted careers in the entertainment industry.
The mother-of-two claimed that she would be “totally behind” her children if they followed in her footsteps.
Since that episode was released, royal author Christopher Andersen discussed Meghan’s comments, adding that the two children would not have had “so many opportunities” if the Duke and Duchess had remained part of the Royal Family.
Since the couple’s royal exit in 2020, the family of four now reside in California.
Archie and Lilibet came to the UK over the summer as their parents joined the rest of the Royal Family in celebrating the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
