Now that she has finally arrived, the question on many a royal watchers mind is what will William and Kate name their newborn daughter. People, especially those with money waged on the name, are impatient to know. How long will it take for the royal baby's name to be announced? The waits for royal names have varied.
Prince George's names were announced 2 days after he was born
Prince William's names announced 1 week after his birth
Prince Harry's names were announced 19 hours after his birth
Princess Beatrice's name was announced 2 weeks later
Princess Eugenie's name was announced 1 week later
Lady Louise Windsor's name took longer - 21 days
Whereas her brother, James, Viscount Severn's name took 4 days.
All of the Queen's children's names are said to have taken a month to be announced.
So Princess Cambridge's names could be released anywhere from tomorrow to a month! On the bright side, we can take heart in the fact that, unlike the Danish royal family, the British royals do not wait until the christening to provide the public with this information.
UPDATE: The baby has a name! Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Like her brother it took two days for her name to be announced.
