Not even three years into this world, and there’s already a controversy surrounding a royal kid. (Seriously, a kid who’s not even three; we weren’t kidding). Earlier this year, a huge controversy hit royal experts and fans when contradicting accounts of this event hit the internet. While Meghan Markle and Prince Harry adamantly claimed that they got permission from the late Queen Elizabeth over choosing the name “Lilibet Diana” for their daughter, other palace insiders claimed that wasn’t the case. Thus, a controversy ensued around their daughter’s name.

Royal expert Kinsey Schofield spoke to Express.co.uk about when she believes Meghan and Harry will bring up this issue with their daughter.

“Based on some of the causes that Harry and Meghan have taken up, I bet it will be a significant amount of time before Lili has the type of freedom online to discover this particular scandal. By then, I imagine that she will have it indoctrinated in her that the press is bad and full of misinformation… according to her parents,” Schofield theorized.

She added, “Lili will likely not be bothered by the sensational story. She will not understand the importance of her great-grandmother because Meghan has shown no interest in investing in the history of Harry’s family…[she] will likely continue to be so detached from the Royal Family.”

So Schofield, along with quite a few experts, claim that Meghan and Harry will shelter their children from the media until the time is right. Many celebrities and public figures do this when it comes to raising their children in the digital age, so this isn’t exactly something new. However, the lengthy amount of time it will take for Meghan to tell her daughter has spurred on even more hearsay.

Harry and Meghan started dating in 2016, and by April 2018, they were married in a beautiful royal ceremony. They share two children together named Archie, born in May 2019, and Lilibet Diana, born in June 2021.
