Princess Charlotte shares a similarity with her cousin Princess Lilibet that is a sweet honour to their late great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II.
There’s a royal tradition when it comes to naming a new royal baby in that it usually needs to have historical and familial nods.
Nine of the late monarch’s descendants are named in her honour.
And so are Princess Charlotte and Princess Lilibet, even though the name can also be attributed to the Queen Mother or to Queen Elizabeth I.
The Prince and Princess of Wales announced they’ll be naming their daughter Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana when she was born in 2015, whilst the Duke and Duchess of Sussex named their daughter Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor when she was born in 2021.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced earlier this year that they didn’t wish to deny their children their “birthright” and would start using their Prince and Princess titles.
As a result, Charlotte and Lilibet are both named after their great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II (with Lilibet’s name being the Queen’s famous family nickname) and their late grandmother Diana, Princess of Wales.
Other members of the family to be named after the former monarch include Princess Beatrice (Beatrice Elizabeth Mary), Zara Tindall (Zara Anne Elizabeth) Isla Phillips (Isla Elizabeth) and Lady Louise Windsor (Louise Alice Elizabeth Mary).
