Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana: Kate Middleton And Prince William Reveal Royal Baby Girl’s Name
Meet Princess Charlotte! Kate Middleton and Prince William revealed the name of the royal baby girl on Monday. Kensington Palace made the announcement in both a formal release and on the family’s official Twitter account.
The newborn’s full name is Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge. “Charlotte” was one of the odds-on favorites among those predicting, and even betting, what the little girl’s name to be, while others wondered when Prince William would pay tribute to his late mother, Princess Diana. “Elizabeth,” of course, is in honor of Prince William’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
Kensington Palace tweeted, “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. The baby will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.” Prince William and Middleton are known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, while Charlotte’s big brother’s full name is Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge.
Princess Charlotte was born on Saturday at 8:34 a.m. local time in London. Later in the day, Prince George met his baby sister, and Middleton and Prince William posed for photographers, before the new dad drove off to bring the little princess back home. Prince Charles and the Middletons have already visited their new granddaughter, as has Pippa Middleton. Prince Harry, who is out of the country, said in a statement about his niece, “She is absolutely beautiful. I can’t wait to meet her.”
On Sunday, via Kensington Palace, it was noted, “The Duke and Duchess are hugely grateful for the messages of congratulations they have received from people all over the world. It means a great deal to them that so many people have celebrated the arrival of their new daughter.” As Gossip Cop previously reported, per tradition, the baby’s name was kept private until Queen Elizabeth was informed. Princess Charlotte is now fourth in line to the throne, behind Prince Charles, Prince William and her brother Prince George. What do you think of the new royal baby’s name?
