It has only been two weeks since Charlotte Elizabeth Diana was welcomed into the world by parents Prince William and Kate Middleton, but the little princess has already captured the hearts of royal watchers all around the world. More importantly, Princess Charlotte is undoubtedly loved by those in the royal family’s inner circle.

Among those is the family’s 43-year-old live-in nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borallo, who was also the one who helped the Duchess of Cambridge with the now 21-month-old Prince George. Nanny Maria is now ready to aid in bringing up the princess, whose handmade baby bonnet was purchased from a boutique in Spain, People reported.

Of course, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, 89, has also gushed about the newest addition to the family. At a garden party at Buckingham Palace last week, one of the guests extended her well wishes to her great-granddaughter, to which the queen replied, “Yes, we love to have another girl.” She has expressed her fondness for the little princess when she met her for the first time in Kensington Palace, just as the baby was being registered.

Meanwhile Prince Charles, 66, made his hopes for another girl in the family known when Kate was still expecting. “We're hoping for a granddaughter!" he said, as quoted by a previous People report. He and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, went to see his new granddaughter twice shortly after her birth.

Kate’s parents, Carole and Michael, along with her siblings James and Pippa, also join the group of proud relations. Carole and Pippa were among the first ones to visit the princess in Kensington the day after her birth, with Michael following a while later. Pippa and James will also assume the roles of aunt and uncle during Charlotte’s christening. Sources say that the 60-year-old Carole is a “one happy granny” as she took on some grandma duties with Charlotte just as she did with toddler Prince George.

Charlotte’s big brother has of course showed some love and fascination for his little sister, smiling and pointing at her whenever she is around, sources say.
