The royal baby girl has been named Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, Kensington Palace has confirmed.

The princess, the first girl born into British royalty in 25 years, arrived at 8:34 a.m. Saturday, at 8 lbs., 3 oz., to the proud parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

After the birth, one-year-old Prince George waved to onlookers while Prince William carried him into London's St. Mary's Hospital to meet his new baby sister.

The royal family greeted crowds of onlookers as they left the hospital in the afternoon for Kensington Palace where the Middletons, and Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall paid a visit.

On Monday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge reportedly travelled to Norfolk to introduce the princess to her great grandmother Queen Elizabeth II.

For weeks, Alice had been the top bet by British Bookies, but this week Charlotte, the feminine form of Charles, emerged as the top choice.
