Britain's Princess has a name!

The Duke and Duchess have named their daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, and she will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.

The Princess is named after three family members: Charlotte, the feminine version of Charles for her grandfather, Elizabeth for her great-grandmother, and Diana for her grandmother, Prince William's late mother.

Kate and William are still at Kensington Palace in London with their new daughter and son George, but will soon head out to their country home in Amner Hall for the summer. Yesterday, they received visits from doting family members Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla, Carole and Pippa Middleton and finally Michael Middleton to meet the new Princess.

When Kate brought her new baby girl out to meet press (and the world), she was wearing a bespoke silk shift dress with a buttercup print by Jenny Packham. The piece was completely custom, made just for Kate, and is not available for purchase -- but you can browse Packham's Spring collection here. The dress was decided long ago, a source told Us Weekly, and there was no back-up dress like last time. "She decided on this design early on. They picked a gender-neutral yellow, as [Kate and Will] didn't know the baby's sex."

Topping the look off with her Kiki McDonough diamond hoops with Annoushka pearl drop earrings and her Jimmy Choo Gilbert heels, the Duchess impressed us all with how quickly -- and glamorously -- she left the hospital.

Her hair had been done perfectly by hairdresser Amanda Cook Tucker, Kate's personal stylist, who arrived at the hospital early Saturday afternoon. Armed with the tools to give Kate her perfectly curled blowout, Kate left the hospital as flawless as ever.
