Eventgoers noted that Kate’s address contained subtle hints about her approach to raising children – and in particular newborns.
“As a parent, I have learned just how important it is to foster our children’s development
in all areas, not just physical, as soon as they are born,” the duchess tellingly said to the crowd.
Meanwhile, it hardly comes as a surprise that Kate and Prince William’s daughter was the one to blab the news. The young royal has earned a reputation for her confident and cheeky behaviour – as evidenced when she poked her tongue out at photographers during the
King’s Cup sailing regatta.
Even Charlotte’s former classmates at Willcocks Nursery School identified her strong-willed streak, which led them to dub her ‘Warrior Princess’.
Royal expert and author Katie Nicholl explain that Charlotte’s adventurous behaviour earned her the moniker.
“Apparently she earned that nickname because obviously she is a princess, but she’s quite a tomboy,” Katie explains. “[And] she was quite known for her feisty personality.”
Meanwhile, the royal insider says Charlotte was over the moon about having a sister.
“She said that she can’t wait, she seemed very excited,” the source adds.
Surely for Charlotte, who Prince William revealed “loves unicorns”, a baby sister would be the ultimate playmate!
