Recently, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have found themselves at the center of a heated debate. This controversy stems from the naming of their daughter, Lilibet, a name closely associated with the late Queen Elizabeth. Royal author Robert Hardman, in his latest book "Charles III: New King.

New Court. The Inside Story," alleges that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chose the name without the Queen's blessing. Lilibet, a term of endearment used by the Queen's father and Prince Philip, holds a special place in royal history.

Hardman's book reveals a poignant sentiment from the late Monarch, expressing her sense of personal loss over the name. "I don't own the palaces. I don't own the paintings, the only thing I own is my name. And now they've taken that," the Queen reportedly confided to her aides.

This revelation has sparked a wave of criticism from royal commentators, accusing the Sussexes of disrespecting the Queen's legacy.

Harry's Tense Outing

Amidst this brewing storm, Prince Harry was recently spotted jogging in Santa Barbara.

Dressed in a black jacket and shorts, his appearance was more than just a casual outing. Judi James, a renowned body language expert, analyzed Harry's demeanor for The Mirror. According to James, the Prince's expressions and gestures radiated anger.

She noted a particular tension in his lip movements, indicative of internal strife. "Harry's body language here suggests anger. He has previously been seen with his bottom lip sucked in, a sign of reflective regret. However, this time, his biting down on the bottom lip and frowning points to a deeper frustration," James explained.

This development adds a new layer to the ongoing discourse surrounding the Sussexes' choices and their impact on royal tradition and public perception. As the couple navigates these turbulent waters, the public's eye remains fixed on their every move, eagerly awaiting the next chapter in this unfolding saga.
