Princess Charlotte, Kate Middleton and Prince William's only daughter, doesn't make appearances in engagements and news outlets as often as the older members of the British royal family. Like her brothers Prince George and Prince Louis, the little princess spends most of her time away from the spotlight, so not much is known about the heirs to the British throne.

But Middleton and Prince William sometimes do reveal some interesting tidbits about Princess Charlotte during their engagements. Here are some interesting facts we've learned about their daughter. 

Princess Charlotte's surprising favorite food

While most kids may prefer junk food or sweet treats, Princess Charlotte seems to prefer something a little more healthy. During her visit to the Lavender Primary School in London this week, the Duchess of Cambridge shared that her second child loves eating olives, according to Daily Mail

Princess Charlotte's bonding time with Prince George and her mom

Like other kids, Princess Charlotte, along with her older brother Prince George, also like to "help" their parents cook, while perhaps stealing some bites off whatever they are making. During her visit to the primary school this week for Children's Mental Health Week, Middleton revealed that her oldest children "love cooking." 

Matthew Kleiner-Mann, chief executive of the the Ivy Learning Trust, told People magazine that Middleton talked about how Princess Charlotte and Prince George recently made cheesy pasta. "One stirs the flour, one puts the milk and butter in, and they make salads and stuff," he explained. 

Previously, Middleton also shared that she and her two eldest also spend time together making pizza dough from scratch. 

Princess Charlotte speaks at least two languages

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are under the care of Spanish nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo most of the time, so it's no surprise that they might pick up her native language eventually. 

A source told People that Princess Charlotte is reportedly "already chatting away" in Spanish.

Princess Charlotte loves dancing

Last year, Prince William talked about his daughter with Malta's leader Joseph Muscat and his wife Michelle at the reception for Commonwealth Day, which was hosted at Marlborough House. After Muscat revealed that his twin daughters, Etoile Ella and Soleil Sophie, attend a stage school, Prince William proudly said, "My daughter Charlotte loves dancing."

Princess Charlotte is a natural boss

While some might assume that Prince George is the leader of the three Cambridge siblings since he is the future king, Princess Charlotte might give him a run for his money. Back in 2017, Samantha Burge, wife of Warrant Officer Class 2 Chris Burge, told People that she and Middleton had a chat during a special war memorial. And the duchess apparently told her about the dynamic between her children. 

“[Middleton] said that Charlotte is growing up really fast. She is the one in charge,” Burge said.

Queen Elizabeth II apparently confirmed this when she presented a signed bible to 10-year-old Emily Clay last year. When the Queen asked the young girl if she "looked after" her younger sister, Hadleigh, Clay's mother, Ellen, told the monarch, "It's the other way around."

The Queen then replied, "It’s like that with Charlotte and George."

Princess Charlotte inherited her mother's love for art

Last year, Middleton and Prince William stopped by the Passage homeless shelter, where they helped make cards and prep gifts for the residents for the holidays. At the time, Middleton, who has a degree in art history from the University of St. Andrews, shared that Charlotte loves arts and crafts and would enjoy making the beaded bracelets and other similar projects, according to People magazine.

Princess Charlotte is getting many lessons, including riding and playing tennis

Middleton and Prince William are avid tennis players and fans, so it's no surprise that they would encourage their children to try the sport out. Reports have claimed that Princess Charlotte is taking tennis lessons at London's exclusive Hurlingham club as there is no court at Kensington Palace. 

Prince William also seemingly confirmed that they are having their kids take lessons during a chat with a tennis star. When Novak Djokovic asked Prince William and Middleton about their children during Wimbledon 2018, the prince replied, "Very well thanks, very well. Trying to get a tennis racket in their hand – and a football!"

Princess Charlotte reportedly also started early when it comes to taking riding lessons. She seems to be following in Queen Elizabeth II's footsteps as her great-grandmother is famous for her love of all things equestrian and even now at 91 years old continues to ride.

Middleton previously opened up about her daughter's growing passion for horse riding to Paralympic gold medallist Natasha Baker. "She emphasised that Charlotte has this passion for horses and although she doesn't echo it, she'll do her best to champion and encourage it," Baker recalled of her chat with the duchess.
