Carrie Bickmore Reveals Why Meghan Markle And Prince Harry May Expose Their Daughter To Schoolyard Bullying With Her Unique Name Lilibet
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their second child, a daughter named Lilibet, on Friday.
And the royal baby’s name has certainly taken some people by surprise, including Australian radio presenters Tommy Little and Carrie Bickmore.
During an episode of their Hit Network show Carrie and Tommy on Monday, the couple pointed out an inconvenient detail in Lilibet’s name.

According to the duo, the name sounds a lot like ‘little bit’.
Tommy suggested that this would one day expose their daughter to schoolyard bullying, as kids might say “she’s a little” followed by an insult.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their daughter, Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, in California on Friday. They announced that on Sunday.
The baby’s name also stands out because certain members of the royal family did not use Harry and Meghan’s royal titles when acknowledging the birth of Lilibet.

The omission of Harry and Meghan’s royal titles could be interpreted as a subtle hint that they are no longer considered part of the royal family.
Prince William and Kate Middleton did indeed call the Sussexes by their first names in an official congratulatory message on Instagram.
They wrote: ‘We are all very happy to hear about the arrival of baby Lili. Congratulations to Harry, Meghan and Archie.”

Harry’s father, Prince Charles, and his wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles, also did not use the royal titles of the Sussexes in their message.
“Congratulations Harry, Meghan and Archie on the arrival of baby Lilibet Diana,” they wrote on social media.
However, the Queen referred to the couple as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in her official statement, perhaps subtly indicating that their relationship remains intact.
