Princess Charlotte and grandmother Carole Middleton recently enjoyed some sweet bonding time together with a trip to an Artisan market in Bucklebury.

Carole and her royal granddaughter had a girl’s day out earlier this December, stated People magazine, when Princess Kate’s mother took Princess Charlotte on an outing to a local seasonal arts and crafts market. Carole was spotted checking out the various stalls in Bucklebury, with Princess Charlotte securely strapped to her front in a baby carrier.

Locals, who saw the two during their secret market outing mostly left them alone, according to the magazine. Although there were a few shoppers who went over to Carole to gush over Princess Charlotte. An eyewitness even told People magazine that Prince William and Princess Kate’s daughter looked excited during the trip. The source said, “She seemed very happy to be out and about.”

Meanwhile, the upcoming holidays will be the first Christmas that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will spend as a family of four. It is expected that Princess Charlotte and Prince George will receive many gifts from members of the royal family, godparents, friends and well-wishers. Prince William has even already received an early Christmas gift for Princess Charlotte during a recent engagement in Birmingham.

The Duke of Cambridge was given two personalized dolls, one for his daughter and another for wife Princess Kate, Hello magazine reported. The Bonnie & Pearl dolls were named Catherine and Charlotte, with each doll measuring 19 inches tall. The gift was given to Prince William on behalf of the international charity Football for Peace.
