Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have named their newborn baby daughter Charlotte. She was born on Saturday and since then the world has been waiting to see what she would be called. The parents Prince William and his wife Kate, waited two days to tell the world. Charlotte has two middle names, Elizabeth and Diana. Her official title is Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge. She is fourth in line to become top of Britain's royal family. If her grandfather (Prince Charles), father, and brother all die, she will be Britain's queen after Queen Elizabeth passes away.

The British public is delighted with the princess' names. People like the fact that they are traditional and linked to members of the royal family. Charlotte is the female version of Charles – Prince Charles is her grandfather. A Queen Charlotte lived in the 18th century. She was married to Britain's King George III. The new princess' middle name, Elizabeth, is the same as her great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth. Finally, her second middle name, Diana, is that of her grandmother, Diana Princess of Wales. Someone tweeted: 'I love that Diana's name is in there. Such a lovely tribute to her."
