Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s decision to name their baby girl Lilibet Diana has been viewed by some as an attempt by the Sussexes to mend ties with the Royal Family. However royal commentator Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu has claimed the couple has no need to offer any “olive branches.” According to the royal expert, the Duke and Duchess have “done nothing wrong,” and people are simply “losing their god-forsaken minds” at the couple’s decision to leave royal life.
Dr Shola told Jeremy Vine: “Harry and Meghan don’t have to offer an olive branch for anything.
“They have done nothing wrong.
“Harry has always said he loves his great grandmother the fact that he speaks truth, the fact that he shares his own personal experiences of different things.
“Does not mean he was in a chaotic relationship with her.”

“I don’t believe that the Queen is the only Elizabeth called Lillibet okay.
“And I don’t believe they need to ask her permission to call their child Lillbet in honour of her.
“Or as I say should we ask Diana permission before we name a child after her.
“No what we see here are people losing their god-forsaken minds because there is nothing they can do about the fact that Lillibet is the great-granddaughter of the Queen.”

It comes as Russell Myers revealed on ITV’s Lorraine that Prince Harry once informed the Queen of his intention to name a daughter after the monarch.
Mr Myers said: “I am told that Harry had said to the Queen that he may name a daughter after her.
“He didn’t really ask for permission as such.
“But it was a nice surprise I think for the Queen.”
Meanwhile, royal expert Roya Nikkhah said the Queen recognised the “effort” Meghan and Harry were putting in to heal Royal Family rift.
Ms Nikkhah told BBC Breakfast: “I think that by giving their daughter this name it feels like a sort of strong simple and an olive branch to the Royal Family.
“That over the last year every time we have heard something from the Sussexes saying that they perhaps didn’t agree with something in the Royal Family.
“The Queen has always come out and said much loved members of my family and always will be.
“I think this name is a very personal sign that Harry and Meghan feel the same and want to publically show that.”
