Charlotte Elizabeth Diana: the newborn British princess

Kate Middleton and Prince William, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, gave their newborn daughter name Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

Kate Middleton and Prince William, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, gave their newborn daughter name Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

The princess follows a long list of royals named Charlotte and now the fourth in line to the British throne will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.

A lot of consideration were about including the name of Diana after Prince William’s mother and now all speculation is over as we have already known that for sure.

Little Princess Charlotte was born on Saturday in the Lindo Wing of London’s St Mary’s Hospital, where her older brother Prince George was born in July 2013.

The Queen and other senior royals were aware of the royal infant’s name before an official announcement to the public. When the royal couple was asked about choice of a name they answered that the name could speak for itself.

So Charlotte has a long royal genealogy and became commonly used in the 18th century because of the same name of George III’s queen in that time. Also Buckingham palace, which originally was a Buckingham House, was bought in 1761 by the King to his wife Queen Charlotte for using it as a family home not far from St James’s Palace.

Besides, Charles, from which is the feminine form Charlotte, is the name of two former Kings, the Prince of Wales and the princess grandfather as well. There is also a connection from the side of Middleton’s family, since Charlotte is a middle name of duchess’s sister Pippa.

According to the recent statistic, Charlotte is approximately the 21st most commonly used woman’s name in England and Wales as well. In 2013 that name was given to 2.242 babies. What’s more Elizabeth is 39th in the list, but Diana is, as it turned out, not even in the top 100.
