Morgan Calls Out Irony Of Lilibet’s Name
On Monday morning, Morgan gave an interview in which he pointed out how “ironic” it is that Meghan and Harry chose to name their daughter after the Queen.
Lilibet is a nickname the 95-year-old monarch has had since she was a small child.
“It’s quite ironic, isn’t it,” Morgan said. “You have this couple who have been trashing the royal family and the monarchy for the last few weeks and they have named the baby after the Queen, who is, of course, the head of the royal family and the monarchy.”
Morgan went on to say that Meghan and Harry may be trying to get themselves back in the Queen’s good graces by naming their daughter after her.
“Maybe it’s their way of reaching out — as the Americans say — to the royals and wanting some kind of end to this on-running feud,” he continued.

He did offer some support to the couple, saying, “I always think when a new baby is born – I’ve had four myself – it’s churlish to put any negative slant. At such a moment. I wish them all the very best. There is four in the family now. I wish them every success and a long and happy life.”
Royal Family Responds To Birth
After the birth was announced, the palace released a statement saying that the Queen and the rest of the royal family were “delighted” by the news.
“The Queen, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been informed and are delighted with the news of the birth of a daughter for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex,” the statement read, according to Insider.
Lilibet has certainly been born into a very interesting situation when it comes to her parents’ relationship with the rest of the royal family.
In fact, she was born all the way across the world from the rest of the royals, coming into this world in Santa Barbara, California.
Moving forward, it will be interesting if Lilibet’s life ends up being more like that of a British royal, or that of a wealthy southern California girl.
Only time will tell.
