While practicing her twirls and pirouettes, the little princess proved that she isn’t afraid to get a bit dirty, too. Her mum and dad have been very supportive, staying close to her in case she needs extra help. In this regard, she took after her grandmother, Princess Diana, who was quite the dancer too. A royal insider explained:

She’s not afraid of a grazed knee and it’s most certainly not going to stop her from running around the corridors as a girl possessed. Charlotte’s always got her eye on something and she moves at the speed of life!”

THEY HUNT FOR BUGS TOGETHER

One of the cutest past times the mother and daughter take part in is bug catching. One of Kate Middleton's priorities is that her children spend as much time outdoors as possible - which is why she and her husband had large hedges put up in the garden for more privacy.

Whenever she is free, she often joins Princess Charlotte and Prince George to explore around the grounds. She even gets her hands dirty by helping them hunt for bugs.

THE PRINCESS HAS A CUTE NICKNAME 

Kate Middleton has a cute nickname for her daughter, which she let slip while they were out running errands together. Princess Charlotte allegedly sat on the floor of a shop and the Duchess of Cambridge said:

"Get up poppet." Poppet is a cute nickname commonly used in Britsh households to describe a sweet or pretty young girl and our little princess is most certainly both!

SHE IS A HANDS-ON MOM 

Kate Middleton can be described as a superwoman. For one, she is a hands-on mom to her three kids, despite all the royal engagements she has to tend to. With that being said, it is understandable that she is immensely adored by her three kids who love to snuggle up with her.

According to reports by Elle, George, Charlotte, and Louis are always so pleased to see their mum when she gets back home from her daily engagements. Nothing makes the mother of three more happy than to be in their company. 


Kate is often seen taking Charlotte to school and also waiting outside during pick up hours as every normal parent would. Regardless of how important her royal duties and obligations are, her family is the most important thing to Kate, who takes time out to have family and bonding time with them.

Although the royals, (Kate and Prince William) do have a nanny who helps out when they are not around, they make sure that they are fully hands-on as much as possible and whenever they are available. The Duchess also hopes her three kids have the kind of normal life she had despite their status in society.

SHE IS A LITTLE HELPER 

In addition to mimicking her mother, Princess Charlotte loves to help out. According to a Us Weekly report, the little princess uses her bubbly personality and charm to greet guests at Kensington Palace .A source at Kensington Palace says, “She’ll come up to guests and ask them if they want tea or coffee or offer them, sweets.”

SHE'S LIKE HER MOTHER'S SHADOW

Princess Charlotte enjoys spending time with her mother and apparently, the duo do everything together. Charlotte even helps out with food preparation! She does this by setting up her own toy set by her side and mirroring the movements of her mother and the housekeeper.

SHE DOESN'T EVEN KNOW SHE'S A PRINCESS

Princess Charlotte doesn't even know that she's a princess. She's lives in a very sheltered world, where she thinks the only princesses are the ones she reads about in storybooks. If only she knew, right? This is due to her parent's wish to keep her life as normal as possible. Princess Charlotte happily plays with her Disney Princesses, completely oblivious that she holds the same status as her dolls.

SHE IS CUTE BUT BOSSY 

The cute little princess has become known for bossing everyone around. Princess Charlotte is quite the firecracker and her mother knows it. While attending an event at a war memorial in 2017, the Duchess of Cambridge chatted with fellow mother, Samantha Burge, about her daughter’s personality.

Burge later revealed: “She said that Charlotte is growing up really fast. She is the one in charge.” Fans would love to see the adorable princess in action as she takes control of her royal family members!

THEY SHOP TOGETHER 

While Princess Charlotte is still a little young for proper shopping sprees with her mother, Kate Middleton still brings her along to run errands. Most recently, Charlotte accompanied her mother on a Christmas shopping trip at The Range, a discount store near Sandringham.

While shopping with a toddler by your side can be exhausting, Princess Charlotte must enjoy these outings a lot. These activities allow her to do 'normal' things with her mother.

WHY PRINCESS CHARLOTTE WASN'T NAMED AFTER PRINCESS DIANA

After the birth of Prince William's second child and first daughter in 2015, fans were hopeful that he'd name her after his mother, but they were quite surprised at his choice of names. They named her Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

These names pay homage to Prince Charles, great-grandmother Elizabeth, Her Majesty the Queen, and, last but not least, William's late mother, the Princess of Wales. Many still wonder why Diana's name was not put first.

A royal writer and close friend of Diana, Richard Kay, thinks it is suitable to have given the name "Diana" as a third name and not a first name. His reason was explained as follows:

"Had it been the first name, I think it would have been terrible for the child," he says. "There would have been constant comparisons with Diana, and William wouldn't have wanted that. This way, it's a tribute to his mother and a way of ensuring Diana is always remembered."
