Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Accuse BBC of False Reporting About Lilibet

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Accuse BBC of False Reporting About Lilibet

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are once again calling out the media.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are accusing the BBC of “false and defamatory” reporting regarding their baby girl, Lilibet, Variety reported Tuesday (June 9).

The legal letter accuses the media outlet of false reporting regarding their daughter’s name.

The argument is regarding whether the couple asked Queen Elizabeth for permission to use her nickname for their baby’s name. BBC’s long-time royal correspondent Jonny Dymond reported that he had been informed by a “palace source” that the Queen had not been asked.

The report included a statement from the Sussexes’ spokesperson, who said: “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. Had she not been supportive, they would not have used the name.”

After the BBC’s report was picked up by some outlets, the couple’s London-based law firm Schillings sent a legal letter to the BBC, calling the report “false and defamatory.”

This is not the first time that BBC is involved in controversy regarding their relationship with the royals.
