Queen Elizabeth did not know that her 11th great-granddaughter, the daughter of grandson Harry and wife Meghan, was called Lilibet, as she is called in the family. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex did not in fact ask her to be able to use for their daughter the affectionate name with which her loved ones have addressed her majesty since she was a child. The BBC writes it, citing its own sources at Buckingam Palace, according to which ” the queen has never been asked ” anything about it. The first to call Queen Elizabeth ‘Lilibet’ had been her grandfather, King George V, mimicking his attempts to pronounce her name correctly. As Lilibet, the queen signed the funeral wreath for one of her closest friends, Earl Mountbatten. The Queen’s late husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, also called her that.
