Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle introduced the Queen to their newborn daughter via video call after returning from hospital, according to reports.

"They were very excited and couldn't wait to share that their daughter arrived," a source told People.

While the monarch may have been one of the first to see the newborn, it appears Prince Harry hasn't video called his brother Prince William, 38, or his 39 year old wife Kate Middleton to meet their niece.

Asked if they'd FaceTimed yet, she simply responded: “No, I haven’t.”

Following the report, royal expert Omid Scobie tweeted: “A Sussex source says that the Queen was the first family Harry called after Lilibet's birth and during that conversation, he shared the couple's hope of naming their daughter in her honor.

"Had she not been supportive, they would not have used the name.

“Those close to Prince Harry confirm that he spoke to close family before the announcement so perhaps this report highlights just how far removed aides within the institution (who learned of the baby news alongside the rest of the world) now are from the Sussexes' private matters.”

There's been much controversy surrounding their decision to name their child Lilibet as a royal biographer recently slammed the move as "rude".

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Angela Levin said that it was inappropriate for Harry to use a "private" nickname for Queen Elizabeth as his daughter’s name.

She said: “It was given to her by King George V, her grandfather, who was making a joke that she couldn't say Elizabeth when he was very small. Say, what's your name? We'll say Lilibut.

"So that's why he called her that.”

“We knew what it was but it was his name. He wanted that name for her, it was his special name. I think that it's quite demeaning. I really believe that.”
