According to Pearce, “Lilibet is a very special nickname” given to Queen Elizabeth II when she was a child because “she couldn’t pronounce the four syllables of her name.” The 95-year-old monarch is “delighted” to have the girl as part of the family, a source previously revealed.
The arrival of her youngest son’s second child would have been an important milestone for Diana, who died in a car accident in Paris in August 1997. She was 36 years old.
“Since Diana was the epitome of love and the example of unconditional love, she would have been so moved by the baby and their beautiful names,” says the author of Diana The Voice of Change: Revelations about Diana’s life principles He said U.S.
Pearce believes the late royal would have been “in full support” of the couple, who have forged their own path in California since leaving their main duties in March 2020. For Harry, the decision to leave the palace was inspired partly his mom.
“My biggest concern was that history would repeat itself, and I have said it many times before, in a very public way. … When I talk about history repeating itself, I mean my mother, ”the former military pilot said during his CBS and Meghan show, which aired in March. “When you can see that something happens in the same way, anyone can ask for help, ask the system that you are part of, especially when you know that there is a relationship there, that they could help and really share something or call the dogs, whatever you want to call it . Therefore, not receiving any help and being told continually, ‘This is how it is. This is how it is. We’ve all been through it. ‘
Although he is no longer with them, Harry and his brother, Prince williamThey have worked hard to protect their mother’s legacy in the years after her death. The brothers are expected to gather at the unveiling of their official statue in July, marking what would have been their 60th birthday.
Coping with the loss remains a challenge for Harry, who wrote a thoughtful foreword to a picture book titled Hillside Hospital, intended to help children during the grieving process.
“When I was a child I lost my mother. At that moment I did not want to believe it or accept it, and it left a big hole inside me, “he wrote. “I know how you feel and I want to assure you that in time that hole will be filled with so much love and support. You may feel lonely, you may feel sad, you may feel angry, you may feel bad. This feeling will pass. … When a father goes to heaven, they told me that his spirit, his love and the memories of them do not. They are always with you and you can hold onto them forever. I find this to be true. “
