A lovely name I think.
Copycats - same name (not all three) as my daughter ..... also born at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's, several years previously.
They must have been reading the register.

Once Charles becomes King (or pegs it), does she become Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Wales?

And what does Harry then become?

Only if the title of Prince of Wales is created for William. It's not an hereditary title, but must be recreated each time.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_of_Wales

"Harry's full style and title is His Royal Highness Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales, but he is informally known as Prince Harry. He uses the name of the area over which his father holds title, i.e., Wales, as a territorial suffix in lieu of surname. Past precedent is that such surnames are dropped from usage in adulthood, after which either title alone or Mountbatten-Windsor is used when necessary."

Queen Charlotte was a Duchess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz and Queen of the United Kingdom as the consort of King George III.

Sophia Charlotte was born on 19 May 1744. She was the youngest daughter of Duke Charles Louis Frederick of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Prince of Mirow and his wife Princess Elizabeth Albertine of Saxe-Hildburghausen. Mecklenburg-Strelitz was a small north German duchy in the Holy Roman Empire.
The children of Duke Charles were all born at the Untere Schloss (Lower Castle) in Mirow.

German enough for you?

Re: Kate (the Duchess of Cambridge) has gone into labour.

Quelle horreur! A Francophone name for a British Princess - Charlotte indeed! The prospect of having Charlie Boy ascend (if he is capable of ascending) the Throne is bad enough, but why didn't Kate and Will choose Alice as the first name for their daughter, followed quite rightly by Elizabeth, Diana. I suppose we should be grateful the little girl was not called Camilla!

Exactly, too much French history in the name. No doubt 'Poundland' Kate had the final say.

If it wasn't for Franz Ferdinand getting topped in Sarajevo and George V changing the family name because of the ensuing events, she'd have a nice triple-barrelled Germanic surname (as would the rest of them).


Anyway, Britain is a homogenisation of Frenchies, Sauerkrauts and Nordics.

Charlie, Lizzie, Di.... Are you sure that's the name and not just what Wills was muttering under his breath?

Their origins are from an area that is now known as France (east) and Germany - they just talked strangely (and still do).

Re: Kate (the Duchess of Cambridge) has gone into labour.

I like it.

Charlotte is a pretty name, and a tribute to Charles.

Lovely that Diana's name will live on in her granddaughter.

Indeed it is; such a tragedy that Diana did not live long enough to see her grandchildren.
