London, May 4 (ANI): The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's new baby daughter has been named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, the Kensington Palace has announced.

The royal baby, who was born on Saturday, will be known as Princess Charlotte. She is the first British princess who won't face royal discrimination because she's a girl, but that doesn't mean her life will be a fairy tale.

Fourth in line to the throne after her grandfather Charles, her father William, and her older brother George, Princess Charlotte is Queen Elizabeth II's fifth great-grandchild.

Bookies had started betting on names for the new princess, with Charlotte having emerged as one of the favourites.

It's a small step, perhaps, but it symbolizes a more modern, equal-opportunity monarchy. Queen Elizabeth II and her sister Princess Margaret were educated at home, but the baby princess can expect to mingle with non-royals at an ordinary — though expensive — school, attend university and have a career; reports AP via mail.com
