The newest arrival to the Royal family has been named! She is Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana and her official title will be Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.
The name is one that is important in both William and Kate’s families. Charlotte is the feminine form of Charles, which is the name of the princess’ grandfather Prince Charles.
The first middle name, Elizabeth, honours the current Queen Elizabeth II who is the great-grandmother of Princess Charlotte and her brother George.
Diana is a tribute to Princess Diana, William’s mother and the baby’s grandmother, who sadly passed away at the age of 36.
The name Charlotte features in Kate’s side of the family too. It is the middle name of her sister Pippa Middleton. Elizabeth is Kate’s own middle name and also Kate’s mother, Carole Middleton who is the princess’ grandmother.
The new name was warmly welcomed by Royal fans. People had placed bets on what the baby’s name would be and Charlotte was a hot favourite.
