A new royal book has claimed the late Queen was angry over the use of her childhood nickname

Prince Harry seen for the first time since debate over Princess Lilibet’s name

For the first time since information regarding his daughter’s name surfaced in a recent royal book, the Duke of Sussex has been photographed.

On Tuesday, Prince Harry, 39, was spotted leaving a workout at a gym in Santa Barbara, according to photos obtained by Mail Online.

Wearing a black padded jacket, matching shorts, trainers, and a blue beanie hat, the father of two made a low-key appearance while out for a jog.

He held his phone in one hand and revealed his gold wedding band on the other.

Days before Harry’s appearance, Robert Hardman released snippets from his new book, Charles III: New King. New Court. According to The Inside Story, after Prince Harry and Meghan made it known that she was “supportive” of their decision to give their daughter Lilibet, who is expected to be born in June 2021, her mother was “as angry as I’d ever seen her.”

The late Queen was not asked by the Sussexes if they could use Lilibet, according to a Palace source cited by the BBC later.

However, the claim was false and defamatory, according to legal letters the couple’s attorneys sent to the broadcaster and other publishers.

At the time, a representative for Harry and Meghan insisted that the Duke had discussed the name with his grandmother beforehand and would not have used it if the monarch had not given his approval.

When Princess Elizabeth was still a toddler and couldn’t pronounce her own name correctly, Lilibet was first used.

She would mimic her own attempts to say Elizabeth, and her grandfather King George V would lovingly refer to her as Lilibet. She became Lilibet to her family after the endearing moniker stuck.

The book, which begins serialization in The Daily Mail on Thursday, also includes Princess Anne’s response to allegations that she purposefully obscured Harry’s view at King Charles’ coronation with her hat.

“The hat was an interesting question,” the Princess recalled later, according to Robert Hardman. “”Are you certain you want me to keep the hat on?” I asked. since the hat is a respectable size. Yes, was the response. You’re done there. Not a decision I made.”
