According to a royal source, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, “were very excited and couldn’t wait to show their daughter’s face” as soon as they returned home from Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, not far from the family home in Montecito, California, where Meghan Markle gave birth. Despite the palpable tensions between the Sussexes and Queen Elizabeth II, the couple want to do everything to calm the situation. Moreover, the first name given to their daughter is proof of this. They chose the childhood nickname that was given to the one who is now on the throne of England. The young parents had also announced the choice of the first name to the queen before the birth of their little princess.
