The new little Princess has a name! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge reportedly wanted to delay the announcement of their new baby girl's name until after they had introduced her to her great grandmother, the Queen.
The papers reported that the Queen's courtiers were quick to point out that the Queen had not insisted on being the first to know the new Royal Baby's name, however.
The Daily Mail reports:
"There is no protocol which says the monarch needs to be consulted about the name of a newborn in the family, and senior royal sources have stressed she has no expectation of being informed in person before the princess's name is made public. However, William, who has grown especially close to his grandmother in recent years, has apparently decided to afford her the honour when they meet in Sandringham."
The baby's name was announced by @KensingtonRoyal via Twitter:
"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."
