She’s the most senior royal princess to be born for 65 years, so it’s hardly surprising that the Duke and Duchess’ newborn was splashed across the globe’s newspapers this weekend.
From The Deccan Chronicle – South’s India’s largest English newspaper – to Le Figaro in France, the new princess adorned the cover of countless publications all over the globe.
The Sunday Star used the headline ‘HRH, Princess Cutie’, whilst Austria’s Kleine Zeitung opted for ‘the little Princess’, all complete with an adorable snap of the youngster being cradled by her doting parents.

‘Their royal highnesses were today visited by the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, Mr and Mrs Middleton, and Pippa Middleton.’

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided on a name for their daughter but want to inform the Queen personally today before it is publicly released, royal sources have revealed.
It is understood that she will meet her great-grandmother, the Queen, when the family leave Kensington Palace to embark on a new life in Norfolk, where the monarch is in residence, today.
There is no protocol which says the monarch needs to be consulted about the name of a newborn in the family, and senior royal sources have stressed she has no expectation of being informed in person before the princess’s name is made public.
However, William, who has grown especially close to his grandmother in recent years, has apparently decided to afford her the honour when they meet in Sandringham.
The day-old princess of Cambridge is said to be ‘settling in nicely’ with her family and both William and Kate are ‘besotted’ with her, according to friends.
