The Duke of Cambridge gushed about the young royal, aged 4, during a royal engagement in South Wales, on Tuesday. The proud dad spoke on how the young royal is following in her mother Kate’s footsteps. One well-wisher proclaimed Princess Charlotte was her favourite, and her father William was quick to reply: “Yes she is lovely — just like my wife.”
William told stories about his three children on several occasions throughout his visit, and gave some insight into the young royals’ bedtime routine”
He saw a young girl reading Julia Donaldson’s Room On The Broom during a visit to an ice cream shop and said: “I read this to our children all the time.”
He also joked that it had saved many bedtimes, and revealed he told the author “do you realise how many parents you have saved at bedtime?”
He met the author when she received a CBE for her services to literature.
The heir also added: “David Walliams also does really good books for children — for a little bit older children I think.
“I have read one, and it was really good.”
Both William and Kate are said to be hands-on parents.
William previously revealed he loves to play football with George and Charlotte, and Kate encourages them to spend as much time outside as possible.
The Duchess has said spending time together as a family was her favourite thing to do.
So, it is not surprising that these doting parents often ask for their royal engagements to be finished in time for the children’s bedtimes.
Whilst the Duke and Duchess were in south Wales on Tuesday, George and Charlotte were at their school St Thomas’s Battersea in London.
Louis, the youngest, stayed at home in Kensington Palace with their nanny.
The children have often been spotted waiting outside their home to greet their parents, who arrive home at Palace via helicopter.
George and Charlotte were last seen out in public on Christmas Day, and joined their parents for their first walk about with the Royal Family at Sandringham.
The youngest, Louis, was too young to join them, and stayed with his nanny nearby.
Charlotte was completely adored by the public, after being pictured hugging a woman in a wheelchair, who had just given her a giant inflatable flamingo.
She was also captured giving the Queen a curtsey as the royals left the church.
This comes after Kate recently revealed the surprising food George, Charlotte and Louis love.
The Duchess was visiting the LEYF Stockwell Gardens Nursery and Pre-School in London when Trainee Like Nelson-Neil told Kate that he can’t get the children to eat Beetroot.
She replied: “Mine absolutely love it — it’s one of those things, until you try it, you don’t know.”
The Duchess previously told TV chef Mary Berry that the family grow their own vegetables.
