Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana: Princess of Cambridge

The Princess of Cambridge has finally been revealed to the world as Charlotte Elizabeth Diana (pictured centre) - in a touching nod to her grandfather Prince Charles, her grandmother Princess Diana (right) and her great-grandmother The. Kensington Palace revealed the royal baby's full name yesterday after days of speculation and close friends of Princess Diana immediately said the choice means the spirit of Prince William's beloved mother 'lives on'. The Duke of Cambridge (pictured left with Kate and Princess Charlotte) was determined to pay tribute to his mother - despite the efforts of some palace courtiers to have Diana airbrushed from royal history. 

William was, however, clear that his baby girl should not have Diana as a first name. 'It would have been a millstone around her neck,' says one of the princess's long-time friends. Within minutes of the name being announced, Diana's closest friend Rosa Monckton said: 'Diana's spirit lives on in her sons, and now her name lives on in her granddaughter #CharlotteElizabethDiana'. Diana was the godmother of Mrs Monckton's daughter Domenica. Royal aides told MailOnline that the baby's second names were self-evident and would 'speak for themselves'. Another royal source said they understood the couple simply liked the name - but admitted it was a 'happy coincidence' that both William's father and mother would live on in their grand-daughter. Meanwhile, bookmakers are having to pay out millions after Charlotte, the bookmakers' second favourite, had its odds slashed from 3/1.
