Over the weekend Princess Charlotte celebrated her sixth birthday, and to mark the occasion, the royal family released a new photo of the princess in a floral dress. The picture was taken by her mother, Kate Middleton.
Princess Charlotte turned 6 on May 2, but apparently she likes to tell people she’s 16. And based on that amazing flip-it-back-and-forth hair in her birthday photo and her cheeky attitude, she might be right that her inner teenager is already coming out!
While her dad Prince William was on an outing on Tuesday, he revealed his daughter will say she’s 16 when asked how old she is, according to reports. Plus, the precocious kid says, “I’m 6 now. I’ll do what I want,” according to her dad.
While that could be annoyingly snotty coming from some 6-year-olds, we bet that in Charlotte’s adorable-to-Americans British accent and coming out of her sweet face, it would probably just make us LOL and love her even more. Wonder if the little royal’s sauciness comes from mom Kate Middleton‘s side or the Buckingham Palace family?
Princess Charlotte and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have joined the Big Butterfly Count - a national conservation survey to track the number of diversity of the insects.
A photo taken by the duchess shows her six-year-old daughter with a Red Admiral near their home in Norfolk.
The Cambridges said on social media that butterflies were "vital parts of the ecosystem".
The count, organised by Butterfly Conservation, ends on Sunday.
As well as the Red Admiral in Princess Charlotte's hands, the duke and duchess shared images of Peacock butterflies perched on lilac, spotted during their butterfly count.
The Cambridges said: "Butterfly Conservation are encouraging us all to count these incredible creatures because not only are they beautiful creatures to be around but they are also extremely important.
"Butterflies are vital parts of the ecosystem as both pollinators and components of the food chain."
They said "hopefully" people taking part in the butterfly count would be able to beat last year's total.
Starting on 16 July, participants in the count were urged to pick a spot and spend 15 minutes watching for butterflies - and some moths which fly during the daytime - before submitting their sightings.
