LONDON (AP) — Britain’s newborn princess, the second child of Prince William and his wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, has spent her first night at home in London’s Kensington Palace, but the guessing game continues Sunday over what her name will be. Princess Charlotte has a certain ring to it. Or how about Princess Alice?
We may not know until later this week. When the baby’s older brother, Prince George, was born in 2013, the royal couple took two days to reveal his name, waiting until after Queen Elizabeth II had met her new great-grandson.
William and Kate introduced the baby princess Saturday evening to the world, just 12 hours after Kate checked into London’s St. Mary’s Hospital to give birth. The baby weighed in at 8 pounds, 3 ounces (3.7 kilograms).
The princess is fourth in line to the British throne, after her grandfather Charles, her father William and her older brother George. She will be known formally as Her Royal Highness, Princess (name) of Cambridge.
