The new royal princess and Kate Middleton and Prince William’s baby daughter will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have named their daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.
Many speculations and names had been put on bet, out of which Charlotte and Alice were topping the charts. Bookies have paid out as much as £1 million as the royal princess have been named Charlotte.
The name does not bring one but three honors. The new princess’ first name has reportedly come out as simply the choice of Prince William and Kate Middleton. But it also is the middle name of Kate’s sister Pippa, Auntie Pippa to the royal baby girl and also, feminine version of Charles, royal baby’s grandfather, the Prince of Wales. There had already been one Queen Charlotte and Princess Charlotte in the royal reign hundreds of years ago. It seems to be the new royal favorite as both Chelsea Clinton and Princess Caroline of Monaco had named their daughters Charlotte.
Her middle name is to honor the Queen. Name Elizabeth is the royal’s favorite and ranks at #10 in US and #37 in UK under most popular names. It is a Hebrew name meaning, ‘pledged to God.’
Diana is in honor of Prince William’s late mother, grandmother to Princess Charlotte of Cambridge. It has roots back to mythological Roman goddess of the hunt and the moon. The name Diana also means ‘divine’ or ‘heavenly’ in Roman.
Though, the surnames are not used by the royal monarch but if required, probably after marriage, Princess Charlotte of Cambridge will be styled with Mountbatten-Windsor.
Shortly after birth of Prince George, the queen had modified the rule of using the titles – prince and princess made by George V in 1917. If the rule was still breathing in the British monarch, the new royal baby girl would have been called as Lady Charlotte Mountbatten-Windsor.
We wish Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge good health and great life.
