KATE Middleton gave birth to Princess Charlotte in May 2015 and, in doing so, set herself apart from Princess Diana as the People’s Princess “always wanted a girl”, a former royal insider has revealed.
Kate Middleton and Prince William often pay tribute to the late Princess Diana, with her iconic sapphire engagement ring a touching reminder of her presence in their lives. The Duchess of Cambridge often draws comparisons to the late Princess of Wales for her fashion sense, too. She also emulates the hands-on parenting style of Diana, as photos of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis with their mother reveal.
However, a former royal insider says that having a baby girl would have “made everything” for the late Diana and that she was “robbed of the opportunity” of loving her grandchildren.
2017 Amazon Prime documentary “The Diana Story” hears from former royal butler Paul Burrell, who was part of Diana’s household from 1987.
He reveals: “Diana always wanted a girl.”
“She was robbed of the opportunity of loving her grandchildren – especially Charlotte.
“She would have loved Kate, too.”
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge remembered Princess Diana in Princess Charlotte’s name, as her full name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.
With speculation growing over a possible fourth pregnancy, it remains to be seen whether William and Kate will add another little girl to the growing Cambridge family.
Although the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have not revealed the gender of the new baby, or whether they are expecting twins, Diana is currently the most backed name with the bookmakers.
