Prince William Kate Middleton Will Name First Child After Princess Diana
Princess Diana’s sapphire engagement is just one of many ways the late royal’s firstborn son plans to keep her memory alive.
The future king, who is engaged to wed Kate Middleton in April, is planning on using his mother’s Spencer Family name in the naming of his first child.
A palace aide tells the Daily Star that the first son born to Wills and Kate could have John or Spencer included in his name, after Diana’s late father Johnny, and a little girl is likely to have Frances as one of her names, after Diana’s mother.
“William would really like to call his first daughter Diana but that would be a terrible burden for any girl to bear for the rest of her life,” the insider added.
