What Is The Second Language Princess Charlotte Already Speaks?
Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton’s second child Princess Charlotte just turned four years old and she has already acquired a number of talents.
Harpers Bazaar reports that she and her brother George are already taking weekly ballet classes, and Charlotte loves it. The two children are taking after their grandmother Princess Diana, who loved to dance and studied ballet at a young age.
Charlotte is also following her brother’s footsteps this fall and enrolling in Thomas’s Battersea, reports The Telegraph. There she might be learning the standard subjects of reading, writing, and arithmetic but at home, there is also one more skill she’s adding to her set.
Princess Charlotte, her older brother George, and her younger brother Louis are all taken care of by nanny Maria Turrion Borrallo reports Town and Country. Borrallo is a graduate of the prestigious 125-year-old Norland College, which prepares nannies for the duties of taking care of children from the most eminent families. Borrallo hails from a town in Spain and People reports she is teaching her charges Spanish.
Borrallo has been with the Royal Family since George was 8 months old, which means she has probably already been teaching the kids Spanish for about four years. It will certainly come in handy for Charlotte and her brothers when they meet with Spanish-speaking dignitaries in the years to come.
As Prince William said to BBC Radio 1 Teen Award winners regarding dancing, “And if it's something you love, you do what you love,” he said, according to Harpers Bazaar, “Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. Keep at it." We hope that all of the royal children take their father’s advice and continue on with dancing and language-learning.
