The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have named their daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, Kensington Palace has said. The fourth in line to the throne will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.
The proud parents have chosen to represent the baby’s grandfather, Prince Charles, 66, by going for the female version of his name. And they have managed to include William’s late mother, Diana, which will be a popular choice with friends and admirers of her legacy. What’s more, Elizabeth is the name of the current Queen of England and Prince William’s grandmother. And Diana — an unexpected choice given Prince William’s late mother’s rocky history with the royal family — is a beautiful tribute.
