Prince William and Duchess Kate on Monday announced the name they picked for Britain's newborn princess — Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana — a choice seen as a tribute to both William's parents and grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, as well as a link to Kate's family.
The princess, the second child of William and Kate, will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, royal officials said.
The birth of Princess Charlotte marks a new chapter for William and Kate, widely seen as the monarchy's most modern, popular couple. But the names they chose are firmly rooted in royal family history. Charlotte, the feminine form of Charles, appears to be a nod to the newborn's grandfather, Prince Charles. The baby's middle names honor the queen, the infant's 89-year-old great-grandmother, and the late Princess Diana, William's mother and the baby's grandmother.
Charlotte also features in Kate's family, as the middle name of her sister, Pippa Middleton. The newborn princess is fourth in line to the throne after Charles, William and her older brother, 21-month-old Prince George.
SurveyMonkey CEO died of blow to head
SurveyMonkey CEO David Goldberg, who grew up in Minneapolis and was married to Facebook exec Sheryl Sandberg, died of severe head trauma in an exercise accident in the Mexican resort town of Punta Mita, a Mexican state official said Monday. Goldberg was found lying next to a treadmill on Friday at the Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita near Puerto Vallarta. The official said he left his room about 4 p.m. to exercise, and family members went to look for him after he didn't return. He was found about 6:30 p.m. in one of the resort's gyms lying by a treadmill in a pool of blood, with a blow to the lower back of his head. He apparently had slipped on the treadmill and hit the machine, said the official. Goldberg graduated from the Blake School in Hopkins in 1985.
