Famous Charlottes In Popular Culture [VIDEO]
In case you missed it, along with the Kentucky Derby and the fight of the century taking place Saturday, a new royal baby was born, a princess! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (William and Kate) officially introduced their new daughter and she now has a name: Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Here's the name announcement.
Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge. This got me thinking of other famous Charlottes.
Charlotte A. Cavatica, the spider from 'Charlotte's Web'
Forgive me for the sad clip. E. B. White's classic tale is the best-selling children's paperback of all time, and it was made into two film adaptations; I prefer the animated version from 1973.
Charlotte Rae aka Mrs. Edna Garrett from 'The Facts of Life' and 'Diff'rent Strokes'
Yes, never forget Mrs. Garrett was first with the Drummonds and then she skipped town to Kimberly's girls school Eastland. Most recently she's guest-starred on 'Pretty Little Liars' (one of my favs) and 'Girl Meets World'. A multiple Tony and Emmy nominee, Rae just turned 89 last month.
Charlotte Church, classical and pop singer
Welsh-born Church first rose to fame in childhood with multi-platinum albums as a classical singer, she then ventured into pop and a little bit of acting when she was 14.
Good Charlotte, rock/pop band
When I think of the Madden twins these days, I recognize them more for their wives, Nicole Richie (Joel) and Cameron Diaz (Benji). But at one time, their band Good Charlotte put out a fair amount of hits like, "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous", "Boys & Girls", and "The Anthem" which all came from their second release The Young and the Hopeless. Let's hear it for 2003!
Charlotte York Goldenblatt from 'Sex & the City' portrayed by Kristin Davis
True confession time, I didn't really watch 'Sex & the City' all that much. I know, every red blooded single woman in America was at one time or another obsessed with Carrie, Miranda, Samantha, and Charlotte.
Finally, this list wouldn't be complete without English author Charlotte Bronte.
Charlotte was the eldest Bronte sister and she lived the longest. Her most famous novel is Jane Eyre. Little sister Emily's Wuthering Heights is considered a literary masterpiece. I always envision a cat fight between them, but I'm sure they were a little more dignified and did a lot of shade throwing.
Good luck Princess Charlotte!
