Queen Elizabeth Wants William and Kate’s Child Named After Her or Her Dead Sister: Report

October 23, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Queen Elizabeth doesn’t want Prince William and Kate Middleton to name their second child after Princess Diana, according to a new report.

Celeb Dirty Laundry says that William wants to name the child after his late mother but that Elizabeth wants the couple to name the child after her late sister Margaret or herself, Elizabeth.

Citing sources, the report also says that Camilla Parker-Bowles, Prince Charles’ wife, is trying to get the royal couple to name the child after her.

Kate isn’t specified as wanting a certain name yet, but the report says that the Duchess “probably wants to name her daughter something flowery and original, and in no way related to the royal family.”

The most definite name choices that have come out so far have been Diana and Elizabeth.

Royal biographer Andrew Morton said earlier this month that the couple has decided to name their baby if it’s a daughter Elizabeth Diana Windsor.

“Close friends to William and Kate have told me that if it is a girl they want to name the baby after Diana,” Morton told Sun reporter Ben Griffiths.

“They discussed girls’ names before George was born and now they’re hoping the next one is a girl so they can carry out their wish to honour William’s mother.”

No male names have been mentioned as of yet.
