Princess Charlotte of Cambridge (Charlotte Elizabeth Diana;[1] born 2 May 2015) is a member of the British royal family. She is the daughter of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. She is the granddaughter of Charles, Prince of Wales. She is the great-granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II. She was born at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London.[2] Her mother's pregnancy was announced on 8 September 2014 by Clarence House. 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 removes gender from consideration in succession. Meaning she is higher in the line of succession than her younger brother, Prince Louis, the first time a female royal has been in that position.
