By Andrew Osborn LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge have named their newborn daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, a choice that honors the baby's late grandmother Princess Diana and her great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth. The news, announced in a statement on Monday from the couple's Kensington Palace residence, was eagerly awaited by royal watchers and bookmakers who had been placing bets and speculating on the subject since the baby's birth on Saturday. "The baby will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge," Kensington Palace tweeted. Charlotte, Diana and Elizabeth were all among the names most favored by bookmakers for the princess, who is the fifth great-grandchild of Britain's 89-year-old Queen Elizabeth.
