The Daily Mail, May 5, 2015
Two days after finding out that "It's a girl," the world now knows what to call the second child of Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge: the baby Princess of Cambridge is named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.
The British tabloids had plenty of fodder interpreting the choice, with the Daily Mail declaring that the third name was what mattered most. "For The Mother He Lost," was the daily's headline, referring to Lady Diana, who was killed in a Paris car crash in 1997. The naming showed Prince William's commitment "to ensure the attempts by a ruthless Establishment to airbrush his mother from her place in royal history are not just stalled but halted in their tracks."
At the same time, it appears the first name of the baby, Charlotte, has been chosen in honor of Lady Diana's estranged husband, and William's father, Prince Charles and her second name, Elizabeth, after the current Queen of England, her great-grandmother.
The four-day-old girl is now fourth in line to succeed Queen Elizabeth on the throne, after her grandfather, father, two-year-old brother, Prince George, and just before her uncle, Prince Harry.
