From Prince Louis ‘s mischievous streak to Prince George’s sweet nickname, Wales’ most famous children have more of the world talking than any other royal. Yet it is seven -year-old Princess Charlotte who holds a particularly important place in the nation’s heart . The little girl is not only a fashion influencer, but she is also a shaper of the future. Little Charlotte changed history by becoming the first princess not to be surpassed by her male brothers. The young royal has a very close relationship with her aunt Pippa Middleton , as the two share something very special in common: her name.
Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed their daughter, Princess Charlotte, on May 2, 2015 at the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington and announced her name two days after she was born. The name “Charlotte” is Pippa’s middle name , leading people to believe that her actual nickname is a nod to Kate’s younger sister. However, that is not the only special detail about the only daughter of the Prince and Princess of Wales.
Princess Charlotte’s full name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, a tribute to her great-grandmother , the late Queen, and also William’s late mother, Princess Diana. But it’s her nod to her high-profile maternal aunt Pippa of hers that is perhaps the sweetest tribute on Charlotte’s behalf, as the two have a close aunt and niece relationship. Kate Middleton’s sister’s full name is Philippa Charlotte Middleton.
Princess Charlotte and her Aunt Pippa share something very special
Prince William’s sister-in-law and famous British socialite, Pippa married hedge fund manager James Matthews in Berkshire in May 2017. Her nephew Prince George, then three, and niece Princess Charlotte, who was then two years old, were given the leading roles of page boy and flower girl at the wedding.
Pippa and James Matthews welcomed their first child, Arthur Matthews, in October 2018, a daughter, Grace, in 2021, and a daughter, Rose, in 2022. Pippa’s family now lives very near the family of five of Kate Middleton and Prince William at Adelaide Cottage.
