The New Princess of Cambridge Has Been Named!

And her name is... Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

Yes folks, I am two for two as Charlotte was my first choice when I made my predictions last Wednesday. I also stated that Elizabeth was a strong contender for a middle name AND that Diana would not be a first name but possibly another middle name. I really should start placing bets. The original post was HERE.

Some other historical Charlottes:

Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (in Hanover, Germany), wife to King George III.

Charlotte, Princess Royal was the eldest daughter of King George III and Queen Charlotte (shown above). She went on to marry King Frederick and became the Queen of W├╝rttemberg (in Germany).Charlotte Mathilde von England.jpg

Princess Charlotte Augusta of Wales, born the 7 January 1796 was the only child of George, Prince of Wales, (son of King George III) who later became King George IV and Caroline of Brunswick. Sadly Princess Charlotte, who was set to become Queen Charlotte, passed away in childbirth at the age of 21 in 1817.

After Charlotte’s passing King George III's fourth son, Edward, Duke of Kent, fathered the eventual heir, Queen Victoria, who was born some 18 months later.

A modern day Charlotte is Charlotte Marie Pomeline Casiraghi, daughter of Princess Caroline of Monaco and the granddaughter of Princess Grace.

Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana is preparing for her first audience with the Queen, today, at Sandringham Estate, her Majesty’s country retreat.

I wonder if she’ll sleep through it?

My sister in law just less than a month ago named her wee newborn Charlotte. T'is a bonny name, indeed.

I am so happy for the Royal family - and thankful all went well for the Duchess. She is such a lovely Lady.

I daresay you truly do need to place some lottery bets - your predictions are uncanny!

Love the beautiful name, perfect for a precious and beautiful little Princess!

Beautiful name! So glad they used Diana.

You did well! The names are beautiful, but I find myself glad my girl isn't named any of those names because I'm sure they're about to become very popular! :) I love your posts about the royal family!

Oh you are so smart, I love her name and I am so glad they added Diana.

Thank you for this history lesson (with pictures, too!).
The little Princess is adorable but that's no surprise. Her mommy is beautiful.
What a ring! It was Diana's, wasn't it?

Sandi said...

I didn't know that was Diana's ring! I looked it up and there are photos of both of them wearing it. It seems like she is showing it in these photos purposefully, maybe as a tribute to Diana. How nice!

I was so pleased to hear the new little princess's name, and especially pleased to be able to tell my 5-year-old- my OWN Charlotte- that the new little princess has the same name as her! She bounced with excitement when I told her the news after she got off the school bus!

My older daughter, Audrey, is 9, and she and Duchess Kate share the same birthday. Kate and I are the same age, just 10 days apart. My girls and I all feel connected to the princesses. :-)

I like the name. You really should have laid down some sizeable bets on that one!
