Oops sorry - didn’t see this was also on the Royal chat thread tcrblush

Don’t worry there will be a put-the- boot-in pile-on bitchfest along soon.

Parsley3 Sun 06-Jun-21 17:26:16

Named for two important women in Harry's life. The bitchy comments on the other thread are nauseating.

Ailidh Sun 06-Jun-21 17:28:38

Just noticed the announcement. I'm happy for them, and Lilibet is a beautiful name.

Judy54 Sun 06-Jun-21 17:30:41

It appears that the boot has been put in already on the Royal chat thread. As Parsley3 says the bitchy comments are nauseating. Let's keep this one kind and wish the young couple and their new daughter well.

I like Lilibet.
Of course, one name was sure to be Diana too.

They go nicely together and I'm sure Lilibet will now take off as a popular girls' name.

Congratulations on the new arrival.

Lovely. I think they have already shortened the name to Lili in their announcement which is soft and pretty.
I hope Harry can now find peace and happiness with his little Diana.

Glad for the safe delivery, special and pretty name. Lilibet Diana. Whatever you think of the Sussex's it’s wonderful news 🎉🎊🥂

Ahh that’s so lovely and they ve honoured both the queen and his mum Well done them
I was watching a documentary on Diane on Tv the other night and the things she was saying about the firm or the establishment were so similar to what Meghan has said
Good luck to this young couple and get on with your lives and don’t listen to all the mean people who as closed as books to anything different

No! Really! I thought that it was a joke!
I'm really not being nasty, but blimey
It's all shades of wrong. I can't believe it

merlotgran Sun 06-Jun-21 17:35:24

Lovely news. Nice names. Congratulations to them both.

Grandma70s Sun 06-Jun-21 17:36:00

It’s a lovely name, but somehow I thought only the Queen could be called Lilibet. It's her nickname, a childhood pronunciation of Elizabeth..

Polarbear2 Sun 06-Jun-21 17:37:03

Like it a lot. Fresh, young and not stuffy. 👍 from me.

Callistemon Sun 06-Jun-21 17:37:13

I'm sure they must have passed it by her first.

BlueBelle Sun 06-Jun-21 17:37:40

No idea what your post means fanny

Im not a bitch.
I think that it's totally wrong though.
I'm going to hide this thread, and probably take a break.
See you laters, alligators smile

Talullah Sun 06-Jun-21 17:41:08

I think it's rather odd as well. And I don't think I'm a bitch for thinking that way either.
However I love the name. Very pretty and it's going to be shortened to Lili by the sound of things. A new baby is always good news. So congratulations and all that.

Didsbury Sun 06-Jun-21 17:41:56

I think Lillibet is a little insensitive. It is the family name or pet name for the Queen who could not pronounce Elizabeth then she was a child, Only a few could call her by that name and that included Prince Philli[

So not a wise choice - Too personal

Maggiemaybe Sun 06-Jun-21 17:43:30

It's a very pretty name. And I assume they'll have asked HM if she was happy with them using it.

True, and I wonder what the Queen thinks about them pinching her pet name. I doubt they are in her good books at the moment.

Chewbacca Sun 06-Jun-21 17:46:01

Beautiful names that clearly have family resonance; I wish the family well.

What on earth do you mean FannyCornforth? What's totally wrong though? confused

mokryna Sun 06-Jun-21 17:46:55

Lovely name for a girl, I hope she will live a long happy healthy life.
