Royal Profile: Princess Charlotte of Cambridge

Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge was born 2 May 2015 as the second child of Prince William, The Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge {Source}{Source}. She has an older brother:

  1. Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge (2013)

Her christening took place on 5 July 2015. The following are her godparents {Source}:
  1. The Hon. Laura Fellowes (paternal 1st cousin 1x removed)
  2. Adam Middleton (maternal 1st cousin 1x removed)
  3. Thomas van Staunbenzee (family friend)
  4. James Meade (family friend)
  5. Sophie Cater (family friend)
Although only a year old, a number of official photos have been released, many of which were taken by her mother:
  1. Leaving the hospital with her parents (May 2015)
  2. First official photos (taken by Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge, June 2015)
  3. Official Christening photos (July 2015)
  4. Family Portrait with the announcement of Prince George's nursery school (October 2015)
  5. 6 month "birthday" photos (November 2015)
  6. Family ski trip in Switzerland (March 2016)
  7. a Photo to mark Queen Elizabeth II's 90th birthday with two first cousins 1x removed, her brother, and three 2nd cousins (Prince George, The Lady Louise, James, Viscount Severn, Savannah Philips, Isla Philips & Mia Tindall)(April 2016)
  8. Official first birthday portraits (April 2016)

She is named:
  • Charlotte: presumably a femine version of Charles, for her paternal grandfather
  • Elizabeth: for her great grandmother
  • Diana: for the paternal grandmother she will never know, but forever be compared to throughout her life.

Unlike previous British princesses, she cannot be displaced by any younger brothers with the new succession laws allowing equal rights to the throne. She is presently the 1st female in succession after her grandfather, father and older brother.
