Britain’s New Royal Baby Is Named Princess Charlotte

Royal Baby Charlotte Debuts

The Duchess of Cambridge’s new daughter, the fourth in line to the British throne, has been named Charlotte.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana,” the royal family said in a statement Monday. “The baby will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.”

The duchess, the former Kate Middleton, gave birth in London’s St. Mary’s Hospital Saturday morning. The baby, weighing 8 pounds 3 ounces (3.7 kilograms), was delivered at 8:34 a.m. with her father Prince William in attendance. Mother and baby left the hospital Saturday evening.

The duchess, 33, also gave birth to the couple’s first baby, Prince George, in St. Mary’s in July 2013. William’s father, Prince Charles, is the heir apparent to Queen Elizabeth II, who has been monarch since 1952. William and George are next in line.
