I think the meaning of the names is pretty simple actually. Charlotte: a lovely name, traditional but modern too. A name that encloses both family: Charles, Philippa Charlotte. (Hint to Carol as well)
Elizabeth: the queen obviously. But aso a reference to Kate's second name Catherine Elizabeth. Carole is also Carole Elizabeth.
Diana: well, no need for words...

Really, i think it is pretty clear...

William didn't want to speak to the Press because Nicholas Witchell of the BBC was at the shared microphone. They were going to say a few words before William caught a glimpse of Witchell.

William, and his father, loathe Witchell ever since that photo-op at the ski resort just before Charles and Camilla's wedding. Charles made his feelings clear under his breath then, and William seems to be continuing the grudge.

People are making mountains out of mole hills to have something to yak about... It was a birth of a beautiful baby girl but it was simple and quick with no harrowing complications so no drama to speak of and since we won't see photos of her to obsess or as it happens critique for awhile nitpicking blindingly obvious and expected name choices are all people have.

We knew Elizabeth was for sure. Likely they choose that in honor of The Queen first and foremost.

I don't know. If they were going to use Diana for his mother it would look like an insult and maybe even somewhat hurtful to Charles not to put his name in also.I can't see William wanting that as he loves both of his parents dearly. I think the Charlotte is for him and it is a nice fluke it is her sisters middle name also.

[Infact, I was logging into my computer to see if baby Cambridge had been born when the earthquake hit. It violently shook the room.

Baby Charlotte Elizabeth Diana will always be linked to a 4.2 earthquake]//quote

Queen Camilla, you are being facetious, right? Is that what they are saying in Britain and the Commonwealth? Or only in your area?

Charles and Camilla got married during the week of the death and funeral of St. John Paul II. Are they forever linked to that sad event of unprecedented worldwide mourning?

Well said Moonmaiden23 - that there was an earthquake in LA [on the Princess' Birthday is scarcely unusual], and IS unknown to 99.9% of the British on Commonwealth populations who are most relevant to the baby's birth !

What was truly earth shaking was the anticipation of the little one's birth. We waited and waited and waited and finally it happened and the crowd roared and celebrated.

While the 4.2 quake in Michigan was a rare occurrence for that area, the earth is always shaking, rattling and rolling right along. There were 227 earthquakes of various magnitudes recorded on the little one's birthdate.

This is the story that the Daily Mail have generated. There's no evidence that William shares his father's view (or indeed that Charles still feels the same way). This story just makes mischief and encourages its readers to vent their dislike of the Royals - just see the comments at the end of the story. ( I don't mean you Currylong) It was a lovely day and the Press were happy to get their pics both of the new Princess and George.

I'm not so sure that's the reason. According to an article in the Telegraph, Kate supposedly said it was too cold and wanted to take the baby back inside.

Whatever the reason, I don't blame them for not speaking to the press. Kate had just given birth less than 10 hours ago. I imagine the last thing she wanted to do was stand at a microphone answering questions.

Did you think they wouldn't.

I think Queen Camilla meant that she would always remember Charlottes birthday because of the earth quake. Just the way I remember where I was and what I was doing when I heard the news about Diana.

A mother wanting to protect her new born daughter from the chilly weather? Oh that's crazy....of course it was because of some random journalist who nobody gives a crap about.

I don't remember everyone pulling George's names apart.

It would be nice to see a photo of the dress and brooch. Maybe Charlotte will wear them in a photo soon.
