The names of the newborn daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been revealed: Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. The baby, born on May 2, 2015, in London, is fourth in line to the throne and bears the names Elizabeth and Diana in honor of the child’s great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and the mother of the Duke of Cambridge, the late Diana, Princess of Wales. The name Charlotte is a French diminutive of ‘Charles’ the name of the baby’s paternal grandfather. The names George and Charlotte, chosen by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for their son and daughter, evoke the Hanoverian era with the reign of King George III (in the eighteenth to early nineteen centuries) whose consort was Queen Charlotte.
