I am still in Perth and wanted to express my joy and congratulations on the birth of the new Princess who was born on the 2nd May and whose name was announced moments ago.
Her name is made from twigs and leaves from the native gum tree. (I am still in Perth) To me this speaks of natural beauty, fragility and delicacy.
Charlotte means “free” and a Will and Kate chose it simply because they like it. It is also the feminine form of Charles and is Pippa’s Middle name. I am pleased that they honoured her late grandmother, Princess Diana.
