Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge named their new baby daughter Charlotte. She was born on Saturday. The world waited for two days to find out the name. Charlotte has two middle names, Elizabeth and Diana. Her title is Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge. If her grandfather (Prince Charles), father (Prince William), and brother (Prince George) all die, she will be Britain's queen after Queen Elizabeth dies.

British people are happy with the princess' names. They are traditional and they are linked to her family. Charlotte is the female Charles – Prince Charles is her grandfather. A Queen Charlotte lived in the 18th century. Charlotte's middle name is the same as her great-grandmother's Queen Elizabeth. Finally, her second middle name is that of her grandmother, Diana Princess of Wales. Someone tweeted it was a tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales.
