A royal expert has slammed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who had their second child on June 4, for registering domains in their baby Lilibet Diana’s name before she was born.
Dan Wootton slammed the delighted parents, saying the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s spokesman’s revelation [about the domains] is “really astounding.”
According to the royal expert, their move shows they were thinking about websites while “going through what should be one of the most beautiful, pure and nerve-wracking moments of their lives”.
Wootton, in his writing for MailOnline, called the Sussexes’ move a “desperate and tacky new low that’s enough to make any royalist’s skin crawl”.
The expert described the move in his own words, calling it “grim reality of Prince Harry’s new Hollywood lifestyle”.
“No, this isn’t a joke, they’ve actually admitted as much today, including one before the baby was even born.”
According to The Telegraph, the Sussexes purchased two domains: LilbetDiana.com and LiliDiana.com.
Their spokesman reportedly told the paper: “As is often customary with public figures, a significant number of domains of any potential names that were considered were purchased… to protect against the exploitation of the name once it was later chosen and shared.”
Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, who are proud parents of their two children Archie and daughter Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, have settled down in California with new Hollywood careers and signed multiple lucrative deals.
