When is Princess Charlotte's birthday?

Princess Charlotte was born at 8.34am on 2nd May 2015 at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London, weighing 8lb 3oz. As the second child of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge she is fourth in line to the throne. royal.ukThe Christening of Princess Charlotte

"In the palace, you hear numerous stories of the staff saying so-and-so is a nightmare and behaves badly but you never hear that about Kate," one source told the outlet, via Celebitchy. An insider said that the Duchess has a "ruthless survival streak" that makes her "well suited" to palace life.

The Duchess has felt a little overwhelmed with her increasing workload following Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry's decision to step back from their royal family roles and the fact that she's taken on more responsibility as she and William prepare someday to be king and queen.

"Of course she’s smiling and dressing appropriately but she doesn’t want this [increased workload]," a source said. "She feels exhausted and trapped. She’s working as hard as a top CEO, who has to be wheeled out all the time, without the benefits of boundaries and plenty of holidays."

Hours after Tatler published this story, Kensington Palace issued a rare response:

"This story contains a swathe of inaccuracies and false misrepresentations which were not put to Kensington Palace prior to publication," a spokesperson said. That rep didn't specify what claims were inaccurate.

Since quarantine began, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have done a series of Zoom engagements. The couple has remained out of the spotlight otherwise. The two are staying at their country home Anmer Hall with their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. They've been homeschooling the kids and working.

Happy 6th Birthday To Princess Charlotte!

Princess Charlotte goes by different name at school - and doesn't use her titles

Mirror Online 03 May, 2021 - 08:00pm

When the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed their second child, a beautiful baby girl, six years ago today they named her Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

It was announced that she would be formally known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge thanks to her position as fourth in line to the throne.

While she'll use her HRH title throughout her life, it's not exactly very practical for a six-year-old at school so Kate and William have styled it differently.

In the same way that Princes William and Harry took their dad's title, Wales as their surname when they growing up, George, Charlotte and Louis use Cambridge.

This means the royal youngsters are known as George Cambridge, Charlotte Cambridge and Louis Cambridge.

Kate and William's older two children are pupils at Thomas's Battersea, a private school in London which costs £18,195 a year per student.

Both children are said to be thriving there, with staff and fellow pupils giving them no special treatment despite their royal titles.

The duke and duchess are regulars on the school run and William even joins the other mums for workouts at the nearby Chelsea Harbour Club gym for post drop-off workouts.

Last week their little brother Louis started at Willcocks Nursery, which is just up the road from the family's Kensington Palace home.

It's ethos is to aim for high standards, excellence and good manners, and the website states: "The most important aspect of the school is that the children are happy.

"We feel that it is extremely important for children to enjoy their first experience of school life and that they are prepared for what comes next.

"By nurturing inquisitive minds and fostering a love of learning the children are encouraged and supported as they develop key skills that prepare them for the next stage of their developmental journey."

The staff also focus on kindness, team work and independence while following the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. They have a well deserved "outstanding" rating from Ofsted.

But the top nursery doesn't come cheap. The morning school costs £2,250 a term while the afternoon is £2,250 a term. This means it will set parents back £16,950 a year if they want their children to attend for the full day.

The Cambridges shared an adorable video showing one of their fun family days out last week to celebrate Kate and William's 10th wedding anniversary.

It showed them playing on the beach, climbing a tree and roasting marshmallows near their Norfolk home, where they spent lockdown.

Royal courtiers 'who sneered about Kate Middleton now the ones bowing lowest'

Mirror Online 03 May, 2021 - 08:00pm

Courtiers who reportedly sneered at Kate Middleton when she joined the royal family are now the ones 'bowing the lowest' to her, a palace expert claims.

Historian and author Sarah Gristwood said the Duchess of Cambridge looks set to 'play a big hand' in the 'remoulding' of the monarchy.

She thinks that the palace officials who once apparently mocked 'Waity Katy' are now in awe of Prince William's wife.

Kate received the cruel nickname, which suggested she was patiently waiting for a proposal, while she was William's girlfriend around 2008.

However, the couple celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary last week, with Kate reportedly 'refocusing' on her royal duties following Megxit.

Ms Gristwood told Vanity Fair: "I'll bet those courtiers who reputedly once sneered about 'Waity Katy' are the very ones bowing lowest now.

"She looks like the person who's going to have to play a big hand in the ongoing remoulding of the monarchy."

Sources told the Daily Mail that the Duchess of Cambridge's determination and confidence has grown since Megxit last year.

She is now apparently keen to achieve 'real, lasting change', with a focus on continuing to help young children.

Palace aides told the Mail: "The Duchess is definitely doing things that are different and outside her comfort zone these days, and that's because she feels confident doing them."

It comes after the Daily Mirror's Royal Correspondent Russell Myers said Prince William and Prince Charles will leave Prince Harry and Meghan to 'sort things out on their own'.

Speaking to talkRadio, he said the royal family are united and trying to 'get back to business'.

Princess Charlotte Is Dad Prince William's Lookalike in New 6th Birthday Portrait

PEOPLE 03 May, 2021 - 01:06pm

To celebrate Princess Charlotte turning 6 on Sunday, the royal family shared a brand new portrait of the birthday girl taken by her mom, Kate Middleton. In the candid snap, Charlotte flashes the camera a smile while her hair (looking blonder than ever!) flows freely.

The new photo quickly drew comparisons between Princess Charlotte and her dad. Photos of Prince William around the same age show off their similarities, from that gleam in their eyes to their cheeky grins.

The cake creator explained to the pair that each snapshot was a different moment from their lives, from their childhoods to becoming parents themselves.

"Is that me?" Prince William said while pointing to a portrait of himself as a youngster, before commenting that it looked like his daughter. "Because that looks just like Charlotte. That is incredible."

Kate was in agreement: "It looks so much like Charlotte."

Kate, 39, has even acknowledged Prince Louis is taking after her looks.

"Everyone always comments on how Louis is the spitting image of Kate," a friend previously told PEOPLE. "She loves it and thinks it's very sweet — she often jokes that he's the only one of her kids who actually looks like her!"
