The Princess of Wales reignited royal fans’ hearts last year when Netflix released an explosive fourth series of its hit royal show The Crown. Season 4 portrayed the early relationship between Prince Charles and Princess Diana which was met with heavy criticism from some royal commentators.
But new research into this year’s predicted most popular baby names suggests that many viewers of the series were delighted and sympathised with Princess Diana’s character in the show.

In a statement Lars B. Andersen, Managing Director, at My Nametags said: “Names are at the heart of what we do, and we are always curious to identify new trends in popular names and what is driving them.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
