Princess Charlotte may be fourth in line to the British throne, but most days she's just a (mostly) regular kid back at school. As if I didn't already love this little royal, hearing her reported nickname just took my affection to the next level. Royals reporter Katie Nicholl writes in Vanity Fair that Charlotte was called "warrior princess" at her preschool thanks to her "love of the outdoors and her feisty and outgoing character." We already know that her parents call her Lottie, but this seems even more fitting for the little girl who told photographers outside Prince Louis's christening, "You're not coming."
Sounds like Charlotte is very much her mother's daughter. One of Kate Middleton's main focuses in her royal work is showing young children the benefits of playing and learning outdoors. Earlier this year, the Duchess of Cambridge unveiled her Back to Nature garden at the Chelsea Flower Show and brought a barefoot Charlotte, along with her brothers, Prince George and Prince Louis, to play in the space.
The little princess also showed off her stylish side recently on her first day of school at Thomas's Battersea with Prince George. Eagle-eyed fans spotted a unicorn keychain hanging off her school bag; it turns out she's a huge fan of the magical creature. At a royal engagement yesterday, Prince William spotted a child playing with a unicorn toy. “My daughter loves unicorns. Loves them,” he said, per People. “Very cool.”
Princess Charlotte was also spotted with a unicorn earlier this summer while watching her dad and her uncle, Prince Harry, play polo. Basically, she is to unicorns as her mother is to her beloved wedges and Aunt Meghan is to delicate rings. Even a warrior princess needs a go-to accessory. And what better one than a unicorn, am I right?
