Charlotte was one of the odds-on favourites to be the Princess’s name, the feminine version of her grandfather’s name, Prince Charles.
Elizabeth refers to both Charlotte’s great-grandmother, the Queen, and great-great-grandmother, the Queen Mother.
Middle name Diana is a touching tribute to William’s late mother.
