LONDON (AP and NewsPop) — Prince William and his wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, on Monday announced the name they picked for Britain’s newborn princess: Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.
The princess, the second child of William and Kate, will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, royal officials said.
The names they chose are firmly rooted in royal family history. Charlotte is the feminine form of Charles. Prince William’s father is Prince Charles. The baby’s middle names honor Queen Elizabeth II, the infant’s 89-year-old great-grandmother, and the late Princess Diana, William’s mother and the baby’s grandmother.
The newborn princess is fourth in line to the throne after Charles, William and her older brother, 21-month-old Prince George.
