United Kingdom’s Prince William and his wife, Kate, had a baby girl on May 2. Prince William and Kate are known as “the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge”, and their daughter will be known as “Princess of Cambridge”. The baby is fourth in line to become the Monarch of the United Kingdom. The baby’s great-grandmother, Elizabeth II, is the current Queen of the country. The baby’s grandfather, Prince Charles, is next in line, followed by the baby’s father. Next is the baby’s older brother, 21-month-old Prince George, and then the baby. The baby has been named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.
Princess Charlotte has already received gifts from some far away countries such as New Zealand and Canada. The monarch of the United Kingdom is also the monarch of these two countries and 13 others. The monarch of the United Kingdom is the head of state, and the prime minister is the head of government.
Even a princess needs a birth certificate. Birth certificates usually have information such as the child’s name, date of birth, place of birth, parents’ names, and parents’ occupation. The occupation entered for Princess Charlotte’s father was “Prince of the United Kingdom”.
