Royal Baby Name: Has It Been Revealed?

There are a lot of loose lips in the royal inner circle. After the Duchess of Cambridge (AKA the former Kate Middleton) accidentally let slip a “d” that led many to believe that the royal family will be adding a new princess, now there are rumblings that someone has leaked the baby name the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen for the future ruler of England: Elizabeth Diana Carole.

Not a bad choice—in fact, I speculated back when the royal couple announced their pregnancy that both Elizabeth and Diana would be among the names given to a future queen.

Elizabeth is obviously in homage to the current and past grand dames of England—and a nice way to pay tribute to William’s grandmother. Diana honors William’s mother, while Carole is Kate’s mother’s name.

I had picked Eleanor Diana Victoria Elizabeth—do I get points for being half right?

What do you think? Is this leak the real deal? And is it what you expected?

That said, I really hope Prince William and Kate Middleton’s baby grows up to be a new kind of princess–the kind that resets what the word “princess” means to little girls everywhere. The kind of princess that inspires girls to be more, to do more than simply be beautiful (although with Lady Lovely Locks for a mom, she’s sure to be gorgeous). With that thought in mind, I’ve decided to play fairy godmother and bestow my wishes for the baby princess-to-be: [...]
