The Royal Princess Has a Name – Princess Charlotte
It’s official, the new Royal Princess has a name – Charlotte.
Kensington Palace tweeted the news saying,
“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.”
Princess Charlotte was born on Saturday at 8:34 a.m. local time in London. Her big brother, Prince George was brought to the hospital to visit his baby sister. Later in the day, Kate Middleton and Prince William posed for photographers, before the new dad took his wife and little princess home.
The Princess has had visits from her grandparents, Prince Charles and the Middletons and by their Aunt Pippa. Prince Harry is in Australia but released a statement about his niece saying, “She is absolutely beautiful. I can’t wait to meet her.”
The Duke and Duchess released a statement thanking everyone for the messages of congratulations they have received from people all over the world saying,
“It means a great deal to them that so many people have celebrated the arrival of their new daughter.”
The Duchess of Cambridge went into the hospital and delivered Princess Charlotte without an epidural within in two hours. She was released from the hospital in record time – less than 12 hours after giving birth to the princess, Kate and William walked out of the hospital.
What are your thoughts on Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana’s name? Are you disappointed that Diana wasn’t her first name? Princess Diana holds a special place in so many people’s hearts – it would have been an honor for her name to be used as her first name rather than her fourth name.
Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana is behind her big brother Prince George in line for the throne. She is fourth in line, following Prince Charles and Prince William.
