Cape Town – The Princess of Cambridge has officially been named just two days after her birth.

Duchess Kate gave birth to Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana on Saturday morning at the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital, BBC reported. 

Kensington Palace tweeted; "The baby will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge."

Charlotte, the feminine form of Charles, is a nod to the newborn's grandfather, Prince Charles. The middle names honor Queen Elizabeth II, the infant's great-grandmother, and the late Princess Diana, William's mother, AP reported.

The princess is fourth in line to the throne after Charles, William and her older brother Prince George.
