In the early hours of this morning, Australia got word that the new Princess of Cambridge has been given a beautiful name – one that is sure to touch hearts of people all around the world.

In a nod to the “people’s princess”, William and Kate have called their beautiful little girl Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

Charlotte is a name with significant royal history – it was also one of the front runners in the betting world despite Alice originally being called favourite. George IV’s only child was Charlotte, who died in childbirth at 21. George III’s wife was Queen Charlotte, born in 1744.

The other two names, Elizabeth and Diana honour her great-grandmother and late grandmother.

Tell us, do you think this is a beautiful name? Did you pick it? Share your thoughts in the comments below…

  1. Absolutely beautiful name. I hope Princess Charlotte has a long and happy life.

  2. Yes! I picked the threes names and in the correct order! Lovely!

  3. Yes I too picked the correct names, I am thrilled that Diana is acknowledged.

  4. Another papmered and priveleged mouth to feed from the public purse. I got the Elizabeth and Diana right but not Charlotte. Why do we have this insane rave about another child born in a far away land when so many children in Australia are being abused by Government?

    • You are a miserable old goat.Can’t you be happy for probably the first and only time in your life.A new baby is a great occasion regardless of who the parents are.

  5. I am so glad that the 3 generations were honoured in this way, and that Diana got the “Nod” If she had been alive today, she would have absolutely rejoiced at the new editions of her Son and daughter in law. A glass of champagne all round I think!

  6. Did anyone else catch the irony of Elizabeth breaking apart Charles and Diana again? I love the names but think Diana should have come before Elizabeth. Just saying.

  7. I love the new Princess’s name, especially including beautiful Diana’s name. It was Diana who was responsible for her two lovely young sons. If Charles had an ounce of decency he would proclaim that to the world.
    If he hadn’t cheated her with that divorcee Camilla Diana would still be here..

  8. Horrible first name.The other two are ok.
