The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Prince William and Kate Middleton have named their newborn daughter in honour of her late grandmother.

The royal couple officially made the announcement on Monday (4th May) that their baby daughter’s name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.


The royal baby girl, who is 4th in line to the throne, was born early in the morning of 2nd May weighing at 8lbs 3oz (3.7kg). Kate Middleton had been admitted to the private Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, west London, at 06:00 BST and the birth announcement came just after 11:00 BST.


Over the course of the past few months, speculation about the princess’ name includes Alice being the favourite with several bookmakers. Charlotte, Elizabeth, and Diana have also been popular with punters.

Charlotte Elizabeth Diana is named for her grandmother and great-grandmother, Prince William’s late mother Princess Diana and Queen Elizabeth II. She will also be known as the Princess of Cambridge after a Letter Patent was issued by the Queen, and the princess will also be able to marry a Roman Catholic without losing her place in line to the throne.
