Hours after the outlet claimed they were told by Senior Buckingham Palace sources the Queen was "never asked" by the couple to use her cherished nickname for their baby, Harry hit back.

Using his and Meghan's close friend Omid Scobie to release a statement, the enraged prince insisted his grandmother was the first royal family member the couple called following their child's birth.

The statement also enforced that Harry and Meghan would have never given their daughter that name without Queen Elizabeth's permission.

Announcing the birth of their second child over the weekend, the couple explained why they chose the unique name.

“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.
