A verbal war broke out between Harry and the BBC. If the palace is on Harry’s side, why didn’t they do this one thing?
This wasn’t the way things were meant to go.
The dissonance of reports that the arrival of Harry and Megan, the Duchess of Sussex’s second child, will be the healing sesame oil needed to reunite the broken royal family has increased in recent months.
After months of resentment and media criticism, the girl’s wonders and joys will be a lovely catalyst to bring the two factions back together.
And instead? Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor is only five days old and she is already at the center of the largest proceedings of the first century.
Today, the relationship between California-based Sussexes and the royal family has hit a staggering new low. Harry and Megan accuse the BBC of defamation After they reported, the Queen did not give them permission to use her lifelong nickname, Lilibet, according to sources in the Senior Palace.
Is Telegraph Reports that the Queen was “told” about her name, rather than seeking permission in advance after her baby was born last Friday.
Relation: 94 minutes after Lili’s arrival
This is how things got worse.
Early Wednesday morning British time, the BBC began reporting that Sussex did not allow 95-year-old Sovereign to use the affectionate Monica in her daughter’s name.
Beebe’s royal correspondent Johnny Dimond reported that the Queen had “never been asked” for her opinion on the matter.
The bomb report was the starting point for an international briefing war.
After 8 am London time, at 1 am in California, the lawyer of the couple who filed the case wrote to the British media that the story was “false and profane.” .. Is Telegraph “Warn them not to repeat their claims,” he reports.
The couple’s global spokesman (a magnificent title, if any) told the same outlet. “The Duke spoke to his family prior to the announcement. In fact, his grandmother was part of the family he first called.
“In that conversation, he shared his desire to name her daughter in honor of her. If she wasn’t supportive, they wouldn’t have used that name.”

But here things get really annoying.
The palace has not denied the BBC’s first report or issued any statement of any kind that departed from the original allegations. (The BBC also seems to support their report.)
This is extraordinary in itself, and if the palace continues to maintain its position, it is the home of the greatest opposition to the noisy couple since the Windsor sensationally left the palace last January. Represents.
After months of being targeted by Sussex’s salvo, has the Queen and her army of courtiers finally begun to counterattack much more aggressively and apparently?
Isn’t this the case for Queen Nice anymore?
Please think about it in March. In an interview with Harry and Megan’s television Golden Time Oprah Winfrey, he launched the most devastating assault on Buckingham Palace since the German bomb landed in the backyard. (true story.)
In the aftermath of the interview, the world was waiting … and waiting … and how the royal family reacts to the devastating accusations of racist Sussexes and the ruthless neglect of the Duchess’ mental health struggle. I waited a little longer to see.
Forty hours after the broadcast, the palace finally gave a brief 61-word reply with a closed mouth. This included the now symbolic “memories may change” and relentlessly refused to address or respond to the specific issues raised by the couple. At a similar level of animus.
The palace did not come out, and instead of being directly involved in Megan’s claim that the palace robbed his passport, or that the couple secretly married three days before Windsor’s grand wedding in 2018, they came out instead. I tried to go, but failed. Top by taking a dignified and silent attitude.
Now, the events of the last 24 hours can make a big difference in the palace’s approach when it comes to dealing with the constantly suffering duo.
Don’t lose sight of the fact that the palace chose the BBC (National Broadcasting Station) for the first briefing on the name situation. It seems to potentially suggest that the royal family is ready to pursue a much more robust stance when it comes to Sussex.
Both sides are now playing increasingly dangerous games.
For Harry and Megan, who have been in a legal war against several elements of the press since 2019, another proceeding will make them appear thin and unnecessarily punitive.
(The accidental victim of this Invictus was that Harry’s announcement of the 2023 Invictus Games in Düsseldorf was almost completely lost as a result of this latest quarrel with the royal family. )
And for the palace? Their repulsion may have been long-lasting, but they chose the name of His Majesty’s eleventh great-grandson, as the moment they launched the counterattack rarely enlightened things.
For both factions here, we are now at stake in what will be World War II. For the royal family, this is the moment of their Bay of Pigs incident.
This latest uproar occurs as the Queen prepares to commemorate Prince Phillip’s 100th anniversary on Thursday. This day was the day I saw the expanded Clan Windsor gather to celebrate the milestone.
Lili now shares with her brother Archie the suspicious distinction of her birth that caused a storm of controversy. (In the case of Archie, it was strange that Megan was told by the press that he had already given birth eight hours after Weebab was born.)
Happy day when Harry, Megan and Archie introduce Lili to a British family? Don’t hold your breath. How terrifying and tragicly ironic that the birth of a future princess did not bring reconciliation, it could irreparably tear the Windsor family.
