Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed their second child, until now known as “Royal Baby #2” on Saturday, and it wasn’t until today that they decided to share the name with the public. So what is our new Princess to be called? Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.
Charlotte was one of the bookies’ favourites over the past several weeks, so they’ll be paying out bigtime now that it’s actually confirmed. Charlotte is also the feminine form of Charles, her grandfather’s name, though who knows if they were actually thinking of that (they likely were). Elizabeth is obvious, as well, given the circumstances, as is Diana.
I love that they actually put Diana in there – lovely tribute to William’s mother. It’s a shame she never got to see her grandkids or even to meet Kate – I think they would have gotten along well, for some reason.
Anyway, congrats (again) to the happy family!
