Princess Charlotte is already preparing for her life as a member of the royal family. The second child of Prince William and Kate Middleton has found a very royal accessory to be her favourite.
“Charlotte knows she a princess and already has a toy tiara, which she loves wearing,” it has been revealed in the newest issue of US Weekly.
It seems that little Charlotte is aware of her princess status, despite her parents Kate and William trying to provide her and her two brothers, Prince George and Prince Louis, with an as normal as possible life. “They go out of their way to keep the kids grounded,” the insider says. “While the kids know there’s something special about them, they’re not spoiled.”
The second of the Cambridge children, Charlotte turned five this May. For her birthday the young royal got homemade cupcakes from her older brother, as well as a cake. “George had a blast decorating them, and Louis helped too,” a source exclusively told Us at the time, noting that “Kate baked Charlotte a cake.”
The little Princess got to spend her big day “playing all her favourite games”, catching up with other members of the royal family through video call and getting gifts. From her parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, she got a tennis racket and bicycle.
The source said at the time: “She feels so grown up now that she’s five. She likes to pick out her own outfits with Kate’s help, and if she doesn’t like a dress she’s wearing, she makes her feelings known. … She doesn’t feel intimidated in front of crowds of people unlike most kids her age.”
Charlotte “loves being the centre of attention,” the insider went on to say. “She is the most confident of her siblings and the leader of the pack.”
Princess Charlotte joined the royal family back in 2015, and since then she has become somewhat of a fan favourite. Over time she has charmed both the fans and the media with her “real character” in front of the cameras, and with her adorable behaviour at royal engagements.
“Princess Charlotte did [have] some great pictures over the years,” he gushed at the time. “Just some great spontaneous moments. … That’s the thing with kids, you just don’t know what you’re going to get and that makes it really fun to photograph.”
