Royal fans were quick to note that under the "occupation" heading for Kate, William wrote, "Princess of the United Kingdom," while their address was signed as Kensington Palace.

Princess Charlotte is the first girl to have been born to a direct heir to the throne since the Queen gave birth to Princess Anne 64 years ago, and is the monarch's fifth great-grandchild.

Other members of the royal family to have already met the new Princess include an "absolutely delighted" Prince Charles and Camilla. Kate's parents Carole and Michael Middleton also visited the family at Kensington Palace along with their daughter Pippa on Sunday.
