The Royal Baby Has Been Named!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have named their daughter!
Welcome to the world, Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.
A statement from Kensington Palace said, “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.”
According to The Daily Mail, Prince William and Kate Middleton may have chosen Charlotte because it is the feminine version of Charles, the name of William’s father. Of course, Elizabeth is the name of the current Queen of England, and Diana is the name of William’s late mother.
Baby Charlotte was born two days ago and made her first appearance to the world yesterday. Kate looked ridiculously amazing under any circumstance, let alone that she just gave birth less than twelve hours before. And Prince George visited his new sister in the hospital, adorably waving to bystanders as he entered, carried by his dad.

There have been Charlottes in the royal family before, although all were hundreds of years ago. Born Sophie in 1744, Queen Charlotte, who was married to George III, shunned her Christian name to go by the title. In 1766, Queen Charlotte gave birth to a daughter, who she called Charlotte. She was known as the Princess Royal.
The daughter of George IV and Caroline of Brunswick, born in 1796, was Princess Charlotte of Wales. She died at just 21 in following childbirth, leading to a mass outpouring of national grief.
Charlotte, Elizabeth, and Alice were the heavy favorites for those betting on the royal baby’s name.
Our opinion doesn’t matter much, but we are absolutely in love with the name! It’s more modern than her big brother’s name, George, but still has roots in the family. We suspect there will be lots more baby Charlottes in the world…
