A seal of approval! While some weren't a fan of the name Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chose for their newborn daughter, Lilibet Diana, Princess Diana's former voice coach Stewart Pearce believes the late activist would be over the moon with the moniker.

"Diana would be thrilled at the choice of name for the little one," he declared to Us Weekly. "As Diana was the personification of love and the exemplar of unconditional love, she would have been so excited by the babe and her beautiful names."

On the other hand, a few royal experts thought their name choice was distasteful, as "Lilibet" was a nickname the late Prince Philip used to call his wife.

"I don’t think it’s a good idea — I think it’s quite rude to Her Majesty Her Queen," stated biographer Angela Levin. "It was a very private nickname from her husband, who hasn’t been dead for very long."

TV personality Anton Du Beke agreed.

"I find it nauseating and irritating that they have done that," he admitted. "The thing is I don't know them but I just want to say, 'Oh grow up.' That's all I want to do because I find it irritating."

On the other hand, royal expert Duncan Larcombe believes the name choice was a form of a peace offering from the couple.

"It's a lovely gesture on the part of Harry and Meghan. The baby name is the first sign of an olive branch to the royal family. It's a sign they want to build bridges," he noted. "There has never been any suggestion of a fallout with the Queen and Harry. His war is with the institution, not his grandmother."

"The Queen is hugely proud of the man Harry has become and she will be chuffed to bits over the name choice," he added. "She will see this as a loving gesture from her grandson. And I believe it's Harry's way of showing that he wants to honour one of the most important women in his life."
