Princess Charlotte--daughter of Kate Middleton and Prince William--met her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, on Tuesday.

People magazine reports that although Queen Elizabeth wasn't at the hospital when Princess Charlotte was born on Saturday, she dressed up in a hot pink ensemble in honor of the royal birth, during an engagement.

Princess Charlotte has had a rather large procession of visitors since her birth. Grandparents Michael and Carole Middleton visited this weekend, as did Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles. Kate's sister, Pippa Middleton, arrived at the same time her mother visited.

Following Princess Charlotte's visit with Queen Elizabeth, it is expected that Kate Middleton and Prince William--along with the new princess and her brother, Prince George--will head to their country home. The 10-bedroom mansion is located 110 miles north of London.

On Tuesday afternoon, Prince Charlotte's birth was officially recorded.

Do you expect that Queen Elizabeth was excited to meet her great-granddaughter, Princess Charlotte? She is no doubt pleased that the baby girl shares her name. Princess Charlotte's full name is, of course, Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.
