Princess Diana lives on in baby Charlotte Elizabeth: Royal couple Kate and William pays homage to both Charles and Diana!
Paying homage to the soul of his mother, Duke of Cambridge William of United Kingdom named his newborn daughter as Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. We all know that William lost his mother to a tragic car accident and that he was especially close to the Princess Diana. That he would honour her memory this way shows that he is truly his mother's son and loves her irrespective of all the royal politics, which to date surrounds his mother.

The little one or as she would be known - Princess of Cambridge, who was born on 4th April 2015, to Kate Middleton and William payed homage not only to her grandmother Diana and to her great grandmother Queen Elizabeth but also to her grandfather Prince Charles for Charlotte is the feminine form of Charles. Immediately after the name was released from the Kensington Palace, friends of Lady Diana appreciated the gesture and said that this means that Diana's spirit 'lives on.'

As was reported by, William was quite sure that he did not want his daughter to have her first name as Diana as it would be like 'a milstone around her neck.' Princess Charlotte, who was born this Saturday is the fourth royal in line to the throne, got the blessings of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles before William announced her name to the world. Elizabeth and Charlotte are also the middle name of mother Kate and aunt Pippa respectively.

In 2013 the name Charlotte was voted as the most popular baby name in England. When the news of the birth of a daughter to the royal couple was announced in England, many people took to the streets and suggested the exact name for the princess. The Kensington Palace announced the name of the Princess thus- 'The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. The baby will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.'

In the past, the royals have been known to borrow names from their past generation as a mark of respect and also for continuity. All the Charlotte's in the past, in the royal family has been known to have a strong character and it is understandable why the Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge chose the French name Charlotte.

In England, huge bets have been laid on the name of the new princess and people, who guessed the name Charlotte have earned upto 1 million Pounds. The other name, which people guessed in the last 48 hours was Alice.

The baby Charlotte Elizabeth Diana is the second child after Prince George of Cambridge born to Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
