Then on Monday, Kensington Palace announced Her Royal Highness’ name: Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. So what’s the meaning behind the royal tot’s moniker?
While there are several noteworthy Charlottes in English royal history, many speculate that it’s a nod to William’s father Prince Charles (Charlotte is the female version of the name).
Charlotte is also the middle name of Kate’s sister Pippa Middleton, as well as her mother Carole.
Meanwhile, Elizabeth is both Kate’s middle name and a tribute to William’s grandmother and the reigning queen, Queen Elizabeth II.
And of course, Princess Charlotte’s third name is a tribute to William’s late mum, Princess Diana.
