Princess Charlotte has already made a name for herself despite being only five years old. She is almost always the highlight of any event she attends, charming the media and royal fans with her upbeat and playful personality.
Body language experts have said that Princess Charlotte will not have any problems when she takes up her royal duties as she already has a confident body language, which was only confirmed by her latest public appearance.
While speaking on Royal Roya, Chris Ship narrated the last time she made a public appearance alongside her parents Prince William and Kate Middleton, as well as her siblings, Prince George and Prince Louis.
The family-of-five went out to see a pantomime show last week, with the five-year-old refusing to hold on to her father’s hand and actually insisted that she “can do this”, while both her brothers clutched their parents’ hands.
“We were noticing there’s a bit where William had held Charlotte’s hand because she was a bit nervous at first,” he said.
“She then let go of dad’s hand. He kept offering it back to her and she went, ‘no, dad! I’m five years old. I can do this!'”
It is expected that she will follow her great-aunt Princess Anne’s footsteps and be a kind of pillar of support for her brother when he will eventually become king.
Commentator Andrew Morton noted that it is very likely that Charlotte will follow the long tradition which was previously held by all second-born children for centuries.
“The job of the royal child with an elder brother or sister is to be supportive. So the Prince of Wales, later the Duke of Windsor, was always supported by his sister and his three brothers,” he said.
“Elizabeth, now the Queen, was always supported by Princess Margaret. There is a kind of unwritten code inside the Royal Family that your job as a sibling is to help share the burden of the monarchy.”
