Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, commonly known as Kate Middleton, and her husband, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, know the importance of learning several languages, especially if you are part of royalty and within your missions,  traveling around the world might be a responsibility. According to the experts, children have the facility to learn and distinguish languages if spoken at a very young age.

This is the case of Princess Charlotte, the second daughter of the Dukes of Cambridge. The little 2-year-old girl, who recently started school at the Willcocks Nursery School, already knows phrases in Spanish, since her nanny, María Teresa Turrión Borrallo, is from Spain.

According to sources, Prince William and Charlotte usually communicate in this language, adding that she is "very sweet and very confident, and is always chatting." People Magazine also reported that little Charlotte is "very polite, but also fun and energetic" and has "beautiful manners." In 2017 Kate confessed that her son, Prince George, can count to ten in Spanish, thanks to their nanny.

Kensington Palace published the recent photographs taken in honor of her first day of school, where she appears sitting on the palace's steps ready to go to class. In the picture, you can see the sweet Charlotte dressed in a red coat and a pink scarf with her pink backpack and pony print.

From birth, Charlotte is a British princess and is entitled to being called Royal Highness. Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, whose real name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, is fourth in line of succession to the British throne, after her paternal grandfather, her father, and her elder brother. And by law, thanks to the changes to succession effected on 26 March 2015, she cannot be displaced in the line of succession by any younger brothers.
