Little Charlotte loves eating olives, Kate revealed.
The Duchess of Cambridge spoke about her three-year-old daughter Charlotte’s snack choice during a royal engagement at Lavender Primary School in north London today. While Kate chatted with the children at the school, she told them: “Charlotte loves olives.”
She added that Princess Charlotte and Prince George enjoy cooking and they recently made cheesy pasta.
After Kate’s visit, Matthew Kleiner-Mann, chief executive of the Ivy Learning Trust, said: “She was telling us how much her children love cooking and how they cook for her. They made cheesy pasta the other day. One stirs the flour, one puts the milk and butter in. And they make salads and stuff. Food is important to her and she understands the links between mental health and physical exercise.”
Kate spoke about food and health during the visit to mark Children’s Mental Health Week.
The Duchess said: “It’s interesting how food and energy and how you feel work together. It’s amazing the connection between physical and mental well-being.”
She also shared the family picture she used for the 2018 Christmas card after she was asked to bring an object that makes her happy.
Kate said: “These are my children and this is my husband. We like playing outside together and spending lots of time together as a family and that makes me feel happy.”
When Kate arrived at the school, the children gathered outside and sang songs to welcome the Duchess. She later made an appearance at Alperton Community School in Brent. She wore a bright green dress by Eponine and stylish black boots.
It comes after the Duchess revealed another one of Princess Charlotte’s favourite things when she visited a homeless charity The Passage with William last December.
The couple took part in an arts and crafts workshop there.
While making bead bracelets, the Duchess said: “Charlotte would love making these.”
Charlotte clearly takes after her mother, with William saying that Kate is the “artsy one” at the activity.
