Today, May 2, Princess Charlotte is celebrating her birthday. The daughter of Kate Middleton and Prince William celebrates the first small birthday – she is five years old. And although there are still few personal achievements due to the age in the baby’s life, there were already enough exciting events! Charlotte managed to visit many countries with her parents, participated in important official events and, above all, she charmed millions of people around the world. Today, we once again invite you to be touched by the growing princess and discover interesting facts about her life.
1. Princess Charlotte – Bilingual
Charlotte and her brothers, Prince George and Prince Louis, have a Spanish nanny – Maria Teresa Turrion Borallo, so that she learned a foreign language very early.
Some sources close to the royal family, in an interview with independent journalists, noted that already in three years, Charlotte had fairly good conversational Spanish.
Well, this knowledge can be useful, because his grandfather, Prince Charles, had very close and friendly relations with the representatives of the Spanish court. When Charlotte grows up, she can continue this friendly tradition!
In addition, it was reported that at school, the girl will also learn French.
2. Charlotte – the principal among the brothers
Princess Charlotte is the second child in the family of Kate and William, but do not think that the girl so easily gives leadership to her older brother George.

It grows so fast! She is a true leader,
– Kate already noticed this during a conversation with another mother during one of the events.
Queen Elizabeth II herself confirmed her words. In 2018, she welcomed a 10-year-old schoolgirl, Emily Clay, and her parents to her Sandringham estate and asked the girl if she was taking care of her younger sister. To this, Emily’s mother replied that it was quite the opposite. In response to this, the Queen noted:
Charlotte and George too.

That’s right, princess – girl power!
3 Princess Charlotte made history
By the way, about the power of girls. Princess Charlotte has become the first representative of the royal family not to be trapped by her younger brother vying for the throne. Before the Crown Inheritance Law was passed in 2013, all girls born into the royal family automatically gave up their place of inheritance to boys.
Charlotte, despite the birth of Prince Louis, remains fourth for the British throne after her grandfather, Prince Charles, the father of Prince William and the older brother of Prince George.

4 Charlotte loves olives
It seems that Kate does not have to suffer from the selective nature of her daughter in food. At such a young age, Charlotte already has the taste of a mature gourmet! How many children do you know who love olives?
According to the Daily Mail, Kate Middleton mentioned her daughter’s favorite snack during a conversation with schoolchildren at one of the events. In addition, the Duchess noted that Charlotte tolerates spicy foods well.
5 Charlotte delighted with unicorns
Another weakness of his daughter with the public was shared by Prince William. And, unlike olives, it’s a much more predictable passion for a five-year-old girl. These are unicorns!
My daughter is delighted with the unicorns! Very cool
– This is how Prince William commented on a figurine of a mythical creature made of colored balls made by children of firefighters during the celebration of the day of the emergency services in Devon.
Additionally, the most attentive fans of the young princess saw a unicorn-shaped key chain on her briefcase on her first day at Thomas’s Battersea.
6. Charlotte loves sports and dancing.
The energy of this girl is clearly not to occupy – the princess loves outdoor games, dancing and, of course, sports!
When she was two, Prince William took her to her first tennis lesson at London’s private club, Herlingham, and Charlotte was thrilled with the game.
Well, the latest sports achievements of the princess are apparently associated with gymnastics. About that during a visit to Ireland in February this year, said Kate Middleton.
Charlotte is really very passionate about gymnastics. She knows how to walk on a wheel, makes an inverted support and all that jazz. This is very useful for developing basic balance and coordination skills,
– said Kate.
Well, Charlotte still has free time to dance! Prince William again spoke of this hobby of his daughter.
My daughter Charlotte likes to dance,
He noted during a conversation with the Prime Minister of Malta in 2018.
7. Charlotte helps mom in the kitchen
It seems that aristocrats themselves don’t even have to take care of the little things – for all they have nannies and helpers. But not in the case of the family of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Kate and William have repeatedly emphasized that they try to raise their children like ordinary people, and that they lead a very modest lifestyle at home themselves.
For example, Kate often asks her older children, George and Charlotte, to help her in the kitchen – we know that Middleton has a passion for cooking. And this passion seems to have been transmitted to children.
For example, we know that Charlotte is happy to help her mother prepare pasta with cheese, which she and George love. In addition, all three were already making pizza dough.
They love it because you can knead it with your hands,
– noted Kate.
8. Charlotte’s favorite color – Pink
Another fact that unites the princess to many peers around the world. Charlotte likes the color pink. This was mentioned by Prince William and Kate Middleton.

During a visit to the Hornsey Road Children Center, the Duchess spoke to one of the girls and asked her what her favorite color was. Upon learning that it was pink, Kate added that it was also her daughter Charlotte’s favorite color.

9. Princess Charlotte is already an influential fashionista
It seems that the time is not far away when we will discuss the “Charlotte effect”! Fashion magazines have written a lot that Meghan Markle’s outfits are out of stock at the moment, but the little princess, in the end, does not affect sales any less. EBay analysts noted an incredible increase in requests for similar things when Charlotte appeared in a yellow cardigan in one of the official photos.
No less interesting was her pink dress, in which she was on a visit to Germany.
In addition, financial experts already estimate Charlotte’s assets at £ 3 billion! Which, by the way, is greater than that of Prince George: his potential capital is estimated “only” at 2.4 billion. The reason is once again that Charlotte’s sphere of influence in the fashion segment may be higher, as the market for women’s clothing is larger.
Charlotte’s influence is likely to be felt in a much wider product range than George’s, which will provide more opportunities to monetize her “brand” and, therefore, provide higher value.
– explained Robert Hay, director of marketing and communications at Brand Finance.
10 Princess Charlotte – a copy of her great grandmother
A fact that hardly needs to be clarified is obvious without words, but we can only mention it, because it affects no less than unicorns!
Princess Charlotte / Elizabeth II
The press has repeatedly noted that Princess Charlotte was surprisingly similar to her great grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain. Photos of representatives of the monarchy and users of the network were compared and found not only common external characteristics, but also habits. Thus, Elizabeth II and her great-granddaughter are united by a love of pink and animals.
Ну что же, следить за ее взрослением явно будет интересно!
