Speaking on ITV's Lorraine, the 9th Earl Spencer said: "When I look at all these newspapers going berserk again and I've always found it so hard, I think it's because I'm not very imaginative, but I always see things in terms of family.

"And I remember when I was a boy and Diana became Princess of Wales, I just sort of ploughed along on the same path. You separate the media personality from the real person who's a member of your family, and that's all that matters at the end of the day."

But it had been widely reported that the couple did consult with Her Majesty Queen before the name of their baby, who was born in California on 4 June, was announced.
