Princess Charlotte, the daughter of Prince William and Kate Middleton, is fourth in line for the throne after Princes Charles, William and George.

Queen Elizabeth II, the reigning monarch, has been on the job for 61 years (!) with her son, grandson and now great-grandson waiting in the wings.

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have formally registered the birth of Princess Charlotte," a rep for Kensington Palace said in a statement.

"The Duke of Cambridge signed the birth register at Kensington Palace this afternoon witnessed by a Registrar from Westminster Register Office."

Available to the public, the birth registration gives details on the princess’ entrance to the world, not that any of the details were at all a mystery.

This isn’t Barack Obama’s birth certificate we’re talking about here. No conspiracy theories exist regarding the royal babies … that we know of.

We should Google that.

The regal infant, born from Kate Middleton May 2, shall be deemed Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge.

Her father, 32, signed the form to make it official, using his fall name: His Royal Highness Prince William Arthur Philip Louis Duke of Cambridge.

That’s a mouthful right there!

The Duke’s occupation is listed as Prince of the United Kingdom, while his daughter already claims the position of Princess of the United Kingdom.

The Duchess, 33, is registered under her full name of Catherine Elizabeth Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge. No more Middleton!

Westminster Council registrar Alison Cathcart, who also registered Prince George’s birth, visited the palace for William and Kate to fill out the form.

Now officially fulfilling her occupational duties as princess, baby Charlotte also got one very important visitor Tuesday in Queen Elizabeth II.

No word on what official business the princess and HRM discussed, but we can’t wait to watch the royal family grow in the years to come.
