Kate Middleton and Prince William revealed the royal baby’s name on Monday. Kensington Palace posted on Twitter that her name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. She’ll be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, gave birth at 8:34 a.m. local time on Saturday. Kate and the Duke of Cambridge introduced Princess Charlotte to the world several hours later outside of St. Mary’s Hospital in London.

Charlotte was a choice that many people guessed before the Duchess gave birth (although Alice was also a popular prediction). The Princess is just the latest Charlotte in the royal family. Others include Queen Charlotte, who was married to King George III, and their daughter Charlotte, Princess Royal. Of course, it’s her other two names that have significant personal meaning for the royal family. Elizabeth is for William’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II. Diana is for Princess Diana of Wales, the Duke’s deceased mother. The Queen has not met the royal baby girl yet, but many other family members, including Prince Charles and Carole Middleton, have visited already.

Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, and thanks to a recent law, that won’t change. According to the BBC, the Succession to the Crown Act of 2013 dictates that gender will not affect the line of succession anymore. If William and Kate were to have a third child that is a boy, he would not be placed ahead of Charlotte. However, as fourth in line to the throne, it seems that Charlotte will likely have the Princess title for most of her life. She is the Princess of Cambridge because of her parents’ titles as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
