Princess Charlotte of Wales (Charlotte Elizabeth Diana;[1] born 2 May 2015) is a member of the British royal family. She is the daughter of William, Prince of Wales, and Catherine, Princess of Wales. She is the granddaughter of King Charles III. She is the great-granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II. She was born at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London.[2]

From birth, she was the fourth in line to succeed the Queen, Elizabeth II, after her grandfather, father, and older brother, Prince George of Cambridge.[3] She is the first member of the royal family born after the change to the law on 26 March 2015, which removed gender from consideration in succession. This means she is higher in the line of succession than her younger brother, Prince Louis. This is the first time a female has been in that position.
