Queen Elizabeth wore a floral dress that may have been chosen as a tribute to the great-granddaughter named after her.

Her Majesty wore the dress, by British designer Stewart Parvin, with a matching hat by Rachel Trevor-Morgan to meet President Biden at Windsor Castle on Sunday, The Sun reports.

The dress is adorned with flowers, including lilies. "Lili" is the nickname Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have given their newborn daughter, Lilibet, who was named after the Queen.

Royal commentator Kinsey Schofield told Insider that it would be "fair to assume" the dress was a nod to Lili.

"We rarely see the Queen in prints. When she does opt for prints, they are floral. Her typical standard is bold solid colors when making public appearances to ensure that the waiting public can see her from afar," Schofield, founder of To Di for Daily, told Insider.

"Knowing that these photos would be splashed all over American media, the dress could most certainly be a wink to her great-grandchild. What a thoughtful and creative gesture," she added.

A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently denied reports that the couple had not asked the Queen for permission before naming their baby after her.

"The Duke spoke with his family in advance of the announcement, in fact his grandmother was the first family member he called," the spokesperson told Insider. "During that conversation, he shared their hope of naming their daughter Lilibet in her honor. Had she not been supportive, they would not have used the name."

Representatives for Stewart Parvin, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and Buckingham Palace did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
