Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made sure they were ready for the arrival of their baby girl, Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, earlier this month. In fact, they were so prepared that they even registered several domains in their daughter’s name before her birth.
“As is often customary with public figures, a significant number of domains of any potential names that were considered were purchased by their team to protect against the exploitation of the name once it was later chosen and publicly shared," a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex told People. Per the outlet, among the domains purchased were LilbetDiana.com and LiliDiana.com. Smart move on the part of the couple.
According to a public registry of domain names, these domains were purchased at the end of May. (However, they are not yet active.) No further details have been revealed on what—if anything—the sites will be used for.
Markle and Prince Harry’s son Archie also has a website in his name, which is home to their charitable foundation Archewell.
Their newborn daughter’s name holds a handful of special meanings to the couple. Lilibet comes from Prince Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, whose childhood nickname was “Lilibet.” The name arose because the queen couldn't pronounce her own name when she was a toddler, so her grandfather, King George V, imitated her own attempts to say “Elizabeth” and it stuck. In addition, her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honor her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales.
We can’t wait to see what Meghan and Harry do with LilbetDiana.com.
