The pair welcomed their second child, Lilibet "Lili" Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, on Friday. A representative for Harry and Meghan said in a statement that their daughter was named after her great-grandmother, whose childhood nickname was Lilibet.
 
The BBC, citing a "palace source," reported Wednesday that "the Queen was not asked by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex about naming their daughter Lilibet."
 
A spokesperson for the couple told ITK in a statement on Wednesday, "The Duke spoke with his family in advance of the announcement, in fact his grandmother was the first family member he called."
 
"During that conversation, he shared their hope of naming their daughter Lilibet in her honor," according to the statement. "Had she not been supportive, they would not have used the name."
 
The birth of their daughter comes a little more than two years after they welcomed their first child, son Archie.
