    Prince William needed Queen’s ‘express permission’ for baby’s name – but Harry didn’t

    Prince William needed Queen’s ‘express permission’ for baby’s name – but Harry didn’t

    The Queen took very different approaches when her grandsons William and Harry came to her with the names of their newborn children, it is claimed.

    Experts have claimed Royal Family members run their preferred baby name past the monarch to find out if she dislikes it.

    It is thought the Queen has approved the names of those closest to the throne and given those further down the line of succession the freedom to pick names of their liking.

    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have stuck with traditional names for their children – George, a future king, Charlotte and Louis – as Prince Harry Harry and Meghan Markle opt for non-historic names.

    William had to secure the "express permission" of his grandmother when Prince George, who is third in line to the throne behind his father and grandfather Prince Charles, was born in 2013, the Daily Mail reported.

    This was done in a face-to-face conversation and the Queen was "happy" to approve, as George was the name of her father, the report added.

    It is thought Harry and cousins have the freedom to choose non-traditional names for their children.

    Harry and Meghan chose the name Archie for their son when he was born in May 2019, and gave their daughter, who was born last Friday, the name Lilibet "Lili" Diana.

    Lili, the Queen’s 11th great-grandchild, has been named in tribute to both the Queen – with Lilibet being her family nickname – and Harry’s late mother Diana, Princess of Wales.

    Lilibet was also the name Prince Philip used for his wife of 73 years.

    Earlier this week, sources told the Mirror's Royal Editor Russell Myers that Harry told his grandmother privately of his desire to name a daughter after her, years before he met Meghan.

    A spokeswoman for the Sussexes said the couple would not have used the name Lilibet had the Queen not been supportive.

    The widowed Queen, meanwhile, on Thursday marked what would have been the Duke of Edinburgh’s 100th birthday.

    Last week, she watched as a newly-bred rose named after her beloved late husband was planted in the Windsor Castle gardens to commemorate Philip’s centenary.
