Welcome Princess Charlotte

(I thought I published this post back on May 6, but accidentally saved it as a draft, instead. I hate it when that happens.)

It's official. England's newest princess is named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Of course, that's the shortened version of her name. Officially, her name is registered as:

Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge.

Here's the document that registered her birth:

I love the way the "Occupation" field was completed for Will and Kate. And though it looks like the registrar completed the form (the handwriting seems to match), HRH Prince William signed the form in field 14. 

A new baby is always a blessed and thrilling event, but when the baby is a princess, too, it add a little extra touch of magic.

A Princess is Born!

I was traveling yesterday but managed to keep up with news about Britain's new princess. She looked like a little doll in her mother's arms.

Dad seemed pretty happy, too.

Now the big question is, what name will they give their new little princess? Odds are on Charlotte, which would go well with George . . . as the royal family demonstrated in the 18th Century.
