In case you haven’t heard, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have welcomed their second child: HRH Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

The princess was born at 8:34am on Saturday 2nd May and her name wasn’t announced until Monday 4th.

So what was the decision behind the new princess’ name? Well, Charlotte is the female version of the name Charles (who is Prince William’s father and Charlotte’s grandfather), Elizabeth (as in Queen Elizabeth II who is currently reigning as Charlotte’s great grandmother) and Diana (Prince William’s mother who sadly passed away in 1997).

The new princess will be fourth in line to the throne following Prince Charles, Prince William and her brother Prince George.

As Kate always does, she looked stunning wearing a Jenny Packham dress and had a visit from her personal hairdresser in the Lindo Wing. How does she manage to look this good just a few hours after giving birth? Life is unfair for us mere mortals!

However, shortly after the name was announced, memes flooded the Internet about Charlotte York (from Sex and The City) having the same name as a princess, which are HILARIOUS:

Today (May 5th) the birth certificate for the princess was released. Everyone is saying this makes her birth official, but I feel like it was pretty official when she was actually born? Maybe I’m missing something, I don’t know…


And look how similar Charlotte (right) looks to George (left) when he was born!

Even if you’re not fussed about the royal family, there’s no way you can’t be sucked in by their life, especially Will and Kate because they are super cute!

Let us know what you think about the new princess.
