Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have revealed the name of the newborn princess

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Britain's newborn princess has been named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed a daughter Saturday and today royal officials confirmed the baby's name: Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

Her official title will be Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.

The princess is the second child of Prince William and his wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge. The princess is the fifth great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II. She is fourth in line to the throne, after her grandfather Charles, her father William and her older brother George.

The naming of the second royal baby is similar in time frame to when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose George Alexander Louis for their first child. George was born on July 22 and his name was released a little more than a day later.

Prince William's full name is William Arthur Philip Louis. When William was born on June 21, 1982, his parents didn't reveal his name until one week later. William's father, Prince Charles, was a month old before his name was made public.

William's brother, Harry, has been an exception. His name was announced on the day he was born.
