A landing page for the address – which is marked insecure – says the site is "parked free" and can be purchased through a broker.
The name of the registrant is not revealed in an online Whois record, and the IP address that registered the website was in Kansas City, Missouri, The Mirror reports.
A domain is an identification string that enables administrative autonomy, authority or control online.
It comes as…
- Meghan and Harry have given birth to a baby girl called Lilibet "Lili" Diana Mountbatten-Windsor in a touching nod to the Queen
- She was born at hospital in Santa Barbara on Friday morning weighing 7lbs 11oz
- Lili and Meghan are "healthy and well" and "settling in at home"
- Meghan and Harry have asked people to support organisations working for women and girls instead of giving a present
- Palace ‘surprised’ by Lilibet news – sharing post 3 HOURS after Meghan Markle & Harry baby news to congratulate them
- Meghan Markle & Prince Harry’s choice of ‘private’ name Lilibet is ‘rude’ and ‘demeaning’ towards the Queen, expert says
It has not been confirmed whether this one was created by or on behalf of Meghan and Harry – or what purpose it holds.
But Royal biographer Angela Levin this morning claimed the Sussexes are behind it.
She told Good Morning Britain: "They’ve made a domain – Lilibetdiana," she said.
"A domain means nobody can use that email and they can use it for any commercial work – they’ve licensed it.”
Meghan and Harry already have already registered archewell.com online, through which they announced the birth of their baby girl on Sunday.
The proud parents wrote in a statement: "On June 4, we were blessed with the arrival of our daughter, Lili.
“She is more than we could have ever imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we’ve felt from across the globe.
“Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family.”
A statement yesterday confirmed the baby girl weighed 7lbs 11oz and "both mother and child are healthy and well and settling in at home".
Her name Lilibet is a touching nod to her great-grandmother the Queen, who was affectionately called the nickname by her family.
The couple also honoured Harry's "beloved" late mother Princess Diana with the baby's middle name.
The Sun Online has approached representatives for Meghan and Harry for comment.
