Royal Baby Named ‘Charlotte Elizabeth Diana’

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge pay tribute to the Queen and Princes Diana by naming their daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Now the royal baby prepares for her first audience with the Queen.

It’s been a long wait for patient royal supporters outside the famous Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital in London with punters trying to predict the sex of the newest addition to the family Windsor and even Prince Charles himself saying he was hoping for a Granddaughter! Huge congratulations to Kate and William and little Prince George!
Social media has exploded with support and welcome messages to the royal family using the hashtag #WelcomeToTheFamily across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. It seems the sibling rivalry has already commenced with Twitter recorded more than a million tweets for the new royal baby, while her brother George’s birth in 2013 attracted a mere 900,000 posts.

Let’s take a walk down memory lane with some of Kate’s super-stylish fashion pregnancy moments.
