The UK continues to celebrate the birth of baby daughter as Prince William and his wife Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, were said to have given the name Charlotte Elizabeth Diana to the new royal member.

The announcement was made in a Twitter statement on Monday, two days after the baby born, from the account of Kensington Palace residence where the royal couple stay.

"The baby will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge," Kensington Palace tweeted.

Jubilant scenes had erupted all over the United Kingdom on Saturday morning as the Kensington Palace announced the arrival of a new British royal.

The royal family gave the name Elizabeth and Diana together with Charlotte in order to honour the baby’s both grandmothers Britain's 89-year-old Queen Elizabeth and Princess Diana, the first wife of Prince Charles, who died in an accident in 1997.

Celebrations broke out across the country upon announcement, relieving a week of anxious waiting after the Duchess of Cambridge Catherine, also known as Kate Middleton, was admitted into labour earlier in the morning already overdue.

The royal birth was celebrated through simultaneous royal gun salutes in London's Hyde Park and at the Tower of London, a tradition was implemented for every new comer of the royal family for centuries regardless of baby’s place in throne succession.

The latest addition to the British royal family is now fourth-in-line to the throne, after her older brother George, who is now 21 months old.

Princess William and his wife Kate are expected to travel all around England in the days to come to present the new royal baby daughter to the British people.
