Prince William and Princess Kate have a new baby…and it’s a girl..and it’s name is a fitting tribute to both Sex and The City AND Princess Diana, which is my FAVE kind of royal baby. Pop cultural AND classy as hellll..
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana,” reads a statement from Kensington Palace. “The baby will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.”
There have been several noteworthy Charlottes in English royal history. The most famous perhaps is Princess Charlotte of Wales, the publicly beloved daughter of King George IV, who would have become queen of the United Kingdom if she had not died in childbirth in 1817. (Her death would eventually pave the way for Queen Victoria.)
Other royal Charlottes include Queen Charlotte, the consort of King George III and their eldest daughter, Charlotte Princess Royal.
“Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a daughter at 8:34 a.m. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well,” Kensington Palace Tweeted.
Yep, Kensington Palace tweeted that. #princess #baby #saturday #yolo?
