HRH Duchess of Cambridge
The company Deliflor named the beautiful flower after Kate and William’s daughter – the Princess Charlotte chrysanthemum!
The flower is due to be exhibited at the Chelsea Flower Show in London next month, and will be sold in the Waitrose supermarket for charitable causes, as the money raised will be donated to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, whose Royal Patron is the Duchess.

Johan Heemskerk’s annual social media competition that asks contestants to name a new variety was the inspiration behind Deliflor’s tribute to the little princess.
“It was the day after the baby princess was named and as the flower was baby pink, I felt ‘Charlotte’ would be a good name,” Mister Heemskerk said. [via The Telegraph] “The British royal family and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, in particular, are immensely popular in The Netherlands.”
Charlotte’s brother Prince George had a flower named after him too – the Georgie Boy daffodil. In addition, there is also Vanda William Catherine, a hybrid orchid named after the royal children’s parents.
