“Lili is named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet. Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honor her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales," the statement from the couple's press secretary said on Sunday.

It took less than 24 hours for Meghan's archnemesis to address their controversial decision.

"It's quite ironic, isn't it?" Piers told Today host Karl Stefanovic on Monday when asked about the name.

Piers added, "You have this couple who have been trashing the Royal Family and the monarchy for the last few weeks and they have named the baby after the Queen."

When asked if this was Meghan and Harry's attempt at rebuilding their relationship with the royal family, Piers laughed and replied, "Maybe it's their way of reaching out, as the Americans say, to the royals and wanting some kind of end to this on-running feud."

During the interview, he seemed to backtrack on his words and offered some kind words for the couple who he's known for notoriously bashing.

"I always think when a new baby is born - I've had four myself - it's churlish to put any negative slant," he said. "At such a moment. I wish them all the very best. There is four in the family now. I wish them every success and a long and happy life."

Ironically, days prior, Piers launched a full-blown attack on Meghan, claiming everything that comes out of her mouth are "downright lies."
