Royal baby Princess Charlotte
The United Kingdom's Prince William and his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge better known as Kate Middleton have welcomed their second child, a daughter. Her Royal Highness Charlotte Elizabeth Diana was born on May 2 and only hours later was presented to the world in the arms of her perfectly coiffed mother.
