It is no secret that there was no love lost between Queen Elisabeth and her daughter in law Princess Diana. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, in another breach of tradition, honored late Princess in their announcement about the birth of their child.
“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex was safely delivered of a son at 05:26hrs this morning.The baby weighs 7lbs 3oz. The Duke of Sussex was present for the birth.The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Lady Jane Fellowes, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Earl Spencer have been informed and are delighted with the news.The Duchess’s mother, Doria Ragland, who is overjoyed by the arrival of her first grandchild, is with Their Royal Highnesses at Frogmore Cottage. Her Royal Highness and the baby are both doing well.”
The mention of Lady Jane Fellowes, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Earl Spencer in the statement shows that Prince Harry cares deeply about his mother’s family. Prince William and Kate Middleton didn’t mention Princess Diana’s family when they were announcing the births of their children.
