Queen Elizabeth II changed the name of Princess Beatrice

Annabelle was too modern for her

The Queen changed her grandson’s name

According to tradition, members of the royal family must inform the Queen of their choice of name. Otherwise, Prince Andrew’s daughter would have had a completely different name.

Princess Beatrice (34) was the first daughter of Prince Andrew (62) and Sarah Ferguson (62) on August 8, 1988 in London – the fifth grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II (96). A full two weeks after her birth, only the name of the princess was announced. Reason: Your grandmother didn’t like the name.

As The Sun now reveals, Her Majesty the Queen had her fingers in naming the princess. Ferguson actually wanted to name her daughter “Annabelle.” It was too “modern” for the Queen. So they were forced to change the name.
