Lilibet is a tribute to Harry‘s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. Lilibet was her nickname as a child by her family members as a nickname. She just recently signed off on the handwritten note atop the coffin of her late husband, Prince Philip with “Lilibet.” It was also a nickname used by the Queen’s father, King George VI.

The middle name, “Diana,” honors Princess Diana, Harry‘s late mother who died in a 1997 car crash in Paris, France.

It’s also not the first time she’s been honored in a naming: Prince William and Kate Middleton honored her memory while naming Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana in 2015.
