The Duke and the Duchess of Sussex announced on Sunday the birth of their baby daughter, Lilibet Diana. The name, according to a royal commentator, was chosen by the couple in a bid to strengthen the monarchy.
Richard Fitzwilliams expressed hopes the arrival of a new member to the Royal Family would help heal the purported rift between the Sussexes and some senior royals.
He wrote in a tweet: “Let us hope the happy news of the birth of ‘Lili’ will lead to the beginning of the healing of the rift between the Sussexes & the RF.
“They have dramatic prospects in the US because of their royal links.
“It makes sense for them to strengthen the monarchy.”
While Mr Fitzwilliams had a positive outlook on the happy news, some Twitter users accused Prince Harry and Meghan of using their links to the Royal Family.
One person tweeted: “They have prospects ONLY because of their royal links.
“Yet they have constantly criticised and defamed the Royal Family.
“Using a private family name for their newest child is utter hypocrisy.”
Another commenter added: “I don’t see that happening at all and I hope you are wrong!
