Stewart Pearce, one of Diana’s confidantes and her vocal coach in the two years before her death, says Harry ‘adored’ his grandad and his nickname for the Queen will now live on through his baby girl.
Harry and Meghan’s choice of ‘Lilibet’ for their newborn daughter’s name is actually a tribute to his grandfather Prince Philip more than to the Queen, according to Princess Diana’s secret voice coach.
Stewart Pearce, who was one of the late princess’s confidantes and her vocal coach in the two years before her death, says Harry ‘adored’ his grandad, and his endearing nickname for his wife Queen Elizabeth will now live on through the Sussexes’ baby girl.
‘Harry adored his grandfather, who became a particular line of security for the young prince post Diana’s death,’ Pearce said in an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com.
‘There is no doubt that the influence Prince Philip had over his grandson will live on in the heart of Harry, in the sense of the complete allegiance Prince Philip’s life created in alliance with the Queen, after the sudden death of her father the King, and her own accession to the throne.’
Earlier this month, the Sussexes announced they had welcomed their second child, daughter Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor on June 4, 2021.
