Royal Family news – Prince Charles IGNORING brutal Meghan Markle and Prince Harry feud 'until raw emotions settle down'

MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry's decision to name their new daughter Lilibet Diana could backfire, an expert has claimed.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex famously fled the UK citing concerns for their 'privacy' and repeatedly insisted they wanted to raise Archie as a "private" citizen, not under the relentless royal spotlight as Harry was.

But one royal commentator says that by giving their daughter two incredibly loaded royal names – Lilibet after Queen Elizabeth and Diana after Harry's late mother – they have actually "cursed" her with attention.

"Such a name will merely heighten interest in her as she grows up; and, though it seems unkind to remark on it now, will inevitably attract the kind of media intrusion with which Lilibet Diana’s wider family are only too familiar," Sean O'Grady wrote in The Independent.

"Her name may turn out to be more of a curse than a blessing, if the poignant experience of the past is anything to go by," he added.

He went on to claim that as a result there will be double the interest in who Lilibet Diana resembles as she grows up "whether she inherits Diana’s sense of style or the Queen’s sense of duty; and, of course, who she’ll be dating."

    WAR OF WORDS

    Prince Harry’s pals have insisted he and Meghan DID tell the Queen they were naming their daughter Lilibet and she was “supportive” of the choice.

    A sensational war of words erupted this morning after a Palace source claimed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex “never asked” Her Majesty about using her childhood nickname.

    Those close to the Sussexes have so far insisted the parents told the Queen about the choice, with one source saying Harry “would have mentioned” the name.

    But a Palace source told the BBC this was not the case – and the Queen was “never asked” about its use.

    An unprecedented briefing war followed, with pals reportedly insisting those close to Harry can confirm he spoke to his family before the announcement of Lilibet’s birth.

    PRINCE CHARLES WARNS WORLD IS “DANGEROUSLY EXPOSED” TO ANOTHER PANDEMIC DUE TO HABITAT DESTRUCTION

    The world is being left “dangerously exposed” to further pandemics due to the rapid destruction of the diversity and interconnectedness of all species, the Prince of Wales has warned.

    Charles said he did not need to stress the “planetary emergency confronting us, nor the desperately urgent need for action”.

    He made the comments during a speech to the Sustainable Growth 2021 Conference, hosted by Cornwall Chamber of Commerce, on World Oceans Day and ahead of the G7 summit, which begins on Friday.

    Other speakers at the online event included Sir Patrick Vallance, the UK Government’s Chief Scientific Adviser, who said there was no “get out of jail free” card to reaching the target of net-zero emissions by 2050.

    LILI’S LIFE

    Meghan Markle hinted how she will raise her new daughter Lilibet Diana years before welcoming the tot.

    The Duchess of Sussex, 39, shared a powerful poem on her old Instagram page before being a royal about vowing to never call her daughter “beautiful”.

    The poem, written by African-American poet Nayyirah Waheed, speaks to a daughter and says it is not her beauty that will guide her through life but her self-confidence.

    It says that “knowing your worth” as a person “can save your life.”

    The poem states that “every being is born beautiful” and “beauty is a given”, but raising someone on beauty alone will “starve” them and make them “raw” and “weak”.

    The poem first appeared in Nayyirah’s 2013 collection Salt, but Meghan shared it with followers in 2017; the year before she married Prince Harry.

    CHARLES' 'ILLEGITIMATE SON' CLAIMS HE WAS MADE TO LOOK LESS ROYAL

    A man who claims to be Prince Charles’ "secret son" says his teeth were ground flat by a dentist to make him look less royal, in yet more wild allegations.

    Aussie-based engineer Simon Dorante-Day, who insists he is the secret love child of Charles and Camilla, claims he was "pinned" down by a dentist to shave down his sharp canines and erase any similarities to the Royal Family.

    The 55-year-old father-of-nine believes the couple conceived him when Charles was just 17, and Camilla 18 and he was later adopted by a family who had links to the Royal Family.

    Simon alleges the royal lovebirds grew close in 1965, and claims Charles was sent to Australia and Camilla disappeared from the public scene for months.

    He was born in Gosport, Hamps, in April, 1966 and he has even filed papers to the High Court in a bid to force the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall to take a DNA test.

    IS HARRY & MEGHAN’S CHOICE OF LILIBET A SUBTLE INSULT OR MEAN LITTLE JIBE ASKS PETRONELLA WYATT

    The World’s Most Private Couple have emerged from their seclusion in Hollywood to announce the birth of a daughter.

    Given that Harry and Meghan could give Moses a run for his money in the portentousness stakes, we should have known that this would be no normal child and that its name would be like some mystery of Holy Writ, replete with meaning.

    But even I bent double when I heard the Sussexes had chosen to call their daughter Lilibet Diana Mountbatten Windsor.

    Diana, as the name of Harry’s beloved and much-missed mother, is a natural choice of course. But Lilibet is the Queen’s intimate family nickname, used only by her parents, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, her sister Princess Margaret and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh.

    MEGHAN’S SECRET NOD TO HER MUM IN DAUGHTER’S NAME LILIBET

    Prince Harry and Meghan paid tribute to both the Queen and Princess Diana with their daughter’s name, but it appears there’s a secret nod to Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland too.

    Speaking on this Good Morning Britain today, and joined by royal biographer Angela Levin, Afua said: “Lilibet is such a pretty name, it’s such a cute name. It is not just about being named after the Queen.

    “It is a bit of a nod to Meghan’s mother Doria as well, because Meghan’s mother’s nickname for her is flower, hence why we’ve got Lili in there for Lilibet.”

    BID FOR PEACE

    Meghan Markle is reported to have made “secret calls” to Kate Middleton in a bid to patch things up with the Royal Family.

    The Duchess of Sussex is claimed to have reached out to her sister-in-law because she is her only chance of “smoothing things over” with the royals.

    Meghan and Harry have given a number of jaw-dropping interviews about their family in recent months, with Meghan now said to fear losing her title as a result.

    A source told Heat Magazine: “Meghan’s fearful of losing her title, and the repercussions of Harry’s statements about the Royals in his recent Apple TV+ documentary with Oprah Winfrey.

    “She’s secretly reached out to Kate, as she knows that the only hope they can have of smoothing things over with the family is to get Kate on their side.”
