Princess Charlotte Just Completed This Major Royal Milestone

Princess Charlotte, the only daughter of Prince William and Kate Middleton, is somewhat of a mystery to royal fans.

Still, Princess Charlotte recently completed a very important royal milestone in full view of the public, providing a special moment for everyone there. Keep reading to learn all about Princess Charlotte, including what is known about her personality, the milestone she completed, and whether she could ever be queen someday.

Princess Charlotte was born in May 2015, the second child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The whole world rejoiced at her birth and, as she has grown, the public has just grown more fascinated by the adorable child.

She certainly has a lot of personality, which is evident in every public appearance that she makes with her parents. At a recent appearance, Princess Charlotte stuck her tongue out at the attentive crowd, making everyone — including her mother — burst into laughter. 

Princess Charlotte is also known to be very close to her older brother, Prince George. Though, Duchess Kate has revealed that the young girl is actually the “one in charge.”

Princess Charlotte is known to love animals and stuffed toys, just like most toddlers all over the world. One of the most notable things about Princess Charlotte is the striking resemblance that she bears to her great-grandmother: Queen Elizabeth II. 

What is Princess Charlotte’s nickname?

As the years have gone on, members of the royal family have revealed even more details about Princess Charlotte’s charming personality. She is surprisingly a great deal like most normal toddlers — she even has a nickname that close members of her family often utilize.

In a March 2019 interview, Duchess Kate revealed that Princess Charlotte’s family calls her “Lottie,” and said that she is very feisty. Middleton has also spoken about how the little princess’s favorite color is pink, and that she loves to talk and is always “chatting away.”

There’s no doubt that Princess Charlotte will need all of her charm, confidence, and intelligence to navigate the pitfalls of royal life. After all, she is destined to grow up as one of the most high-profile members of the royal family. She is also fourth in line to the throne, after her grandfather, Prince Charles; her father, Prince William; and her older brother, Prince George. 

What royal milestone did Princess Charlotte complete?

In late December, after the royal family attended a church service together, Princess Charlotte stole the show once again. As Queen Elizabeth II drove off in her car, all the royals curtsied, including Princess Charlotte. She managed to completely charm all the onlookers, and one even gifted her with a toy doll. 

Although it seems very early for Princess Charlotte to be mastering formal manners like the curtsy, royal insiders have revealed that most royal children learn to curtsy or bow by around age five. Since Princess Charlotte will be celebrating her fifth birthday in May 2020, she is right on track.

Still, she won’t have to curtsy to just anyone. Considering her elevated status, she will only have to curtsy to the reigning sovereign. She will not to courtesy to other royals who are lower on the totem pole, such as her uncle, Prince Harry. Certainly, the public will watch Princess Charlotte’s future in the royal family with great interest.
