It's about time!
Queen Elizabeth II made her way from Sandringham estate to Kensington Palace to finally meet her new great-granddaughter, Princess Charlotte on Tuesday!
The Queen is a little bit behind on the times, seeing as Prince Charles, Camilla, and Carole Middleton all had the pleasure of greeting the little angel already.
But, hey, she's got a country to make appearances at!
The new princess' first encounter with The Queen comes right on the heels her birth certificate's release.
Forget their love of tea!

Ahh! It's like last time all over again!
Clearly she's mastered the art of making an entrance!
Though the Duchess of Cambridge had the help of a
fairy godmother her go-to hairstylist, Amanda Cook Tucker, to ensure not a single curl was out of place!
Especially since a source disclosed:
"It had always been discussed that if Kate were to go into labor early in the morning, she would prefer to leave the hospital on the same day."
It didn't leave much time to get glammed out for her big reveal, but Kate was perfectly prepared.
He's already such a great big brother!
But no one was more excited than her older brother Prince George!
According to a family friend, George was thrilled to meet his little sister:
"George was aware that he would soon have a new brother or sister and has been excited throughout the pregnancy. He might have been a little shy around the new baby, but I heard everything went well. He's great around other children. He's a very curious boy."
Our hearts melted on Saturday when we watched his proud papa carry him into the Lindo Wing to meet Charlotte (check out the gallery above), and now we're obsessed that George loves his new role as big bro!
But there's nothing cuter than the little babes bonding!

Her official title is: Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge! But secretly we hope they give her a nickname like Charlie or Char!!
But where did they get the beautiful baby's moniker from?!
Well, many believe that Charlotte is a nod to grandpa Prince Charles — since it's the female form of his name.
But, both auntie Pippa Middleton and grandma Carole Middleton's middle names are Charlotte. That's convenient — three birds, one stone? LOLz!
Talk about a woman of power!
The Duchess of Cambridge opted out of the epidural when she was in labor with Princess Charlotte!!
Good thing Prince William was by her side the entire time! We can't imagine how tightly she must've been squeezing that royal hand of his!
But her husband wasn't the only trusted face in the room. Princess Kate was surrounded by midwives Arona Ahmed and Jacqui Dunkley-Bent.
A source close to the royal family says Kate really connected with them when she delivered Prince George almost two years ago, and the duo made sure they were going to be the ones to help her out the second time around!
Even without hospital-approved drugs, the insider says all 8lb., 3oz. of Charlotte's delivery went "remarkably well!"
You go, Kate!

All hail Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana!
However, there is one person who — if real — would absolutely go bananas over the royal baby's moniker reveal.
And that gal is none other than Sex and the City's Charlotte York!
The ladylike goody two shoes played by Kristin Davis loved everything lavish and decadent — so it's no surprise that she would totally lose her marbles upon finding out she has the same exact first name as UK's newest celebrity!
Here is how Miz York would react to Miz Charlotte Elizabeth Diana's name reveal!
