Meghan Markle, 39, and Prince Harry, 36, are settling into life as a family of four after the birth of their daughter Lilibet “Lili” Diana. The new baby Sussex was named after the Queen’s family nickname and the choice pays tribute to the monarch at a challenging time for the Windsors, who are mourning the loss of the Duke of Edinburgh. But broadcaster Dan Snow jokingly claimed the royal couple are “trolling” the Royal Family by playing out their family drama very publicly.

Speaking to the Jeremy Vine show, Mr Snow said: “I mean these guys are involved in the most monumental family drama at the moment and we’re all just watching.

“I don’t think you have to ask permission, do you?

“My daughter’s middle name is my mum’s name.

“I don’t think we ask anyone’s permission.”

He added: “I think it’s a gigantic trolling. It’s a family at war.

“I think they’re probably trolling their brother or dad.

“We’re just watching this gigantic drama play out.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have faced criticism for using the nickname of the Queen.

NBC royal commentator and journalist Daisy McAndrew has since claimed the godparents to Lilibet are likely to be American.

Speaking to the Today Show, Ms McAndrew said: “Lots of rumours about who the godparents are going to be and I can tell you that it won’t be William.

“That’s because the royals don’t do siblings as godparents.

“But I think when you look back at who they chose for Archie, these were the old nanny, the old father figure – very British people.

Ms McAndrew continued: “Could be!”
