Harry And Meghan Saved Websites In Daughter Lilibet's Name
It's been reported that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made the effort of claiming websites in Lilibet Diana's name ahead of her birth! Two of the domain names have been shared, and a representative for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex explained the decision. Find out more here!
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle went the extra mile to keep their daughter Lilibet Diana's name intact online! Prior to Lilibet's birth, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's team registered several website addresses that featured her name— and there's a good explanation as to why!
Harry and Meghan wanted to avoid "exploitation" of daughter's name
Harry and Meghan have had issues concerning internet domain names in the past. After they announced their new charity Archewell last year, an internet troll took the domain name archewellfoundation.com before the couple could claim it. As The Telegraph shares, they reserved lilbetdiana.com as well as lilidiana.com— and possibly others.
A rep for the couple told People that Harry and Meghan's camp purchased "a significant number of domains of any potential names that were considered." Said not to be uncommon for those in the public eye, these websites were claimed "to protect against the exploitation of the name once it was later chosen and publicly shared."
Harry and Meghan welcomed Lilibet earlier this month, revealing their baby's name via a special post on their website. While she was born on June 4, they waited a couple of days to make the announcement! The name honours both the queen and the late Princess of Wales, and even has a sweet connection to Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland.
