But there are two members of the royal family a little put out by this shift in attention, and the monarchy’s youngest members would like to remind the world: They are the most important, plz.
Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2 – the children of Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge – are both in line to the throne but apparently have other ideas about “what they’d like to be when they grow up”.
Little Charlotte is also learning Spanish from her nanny, Maria Turrion Borrallo, People reports. And surely, a Spanish-speaking dancer is a perfect occupation for a princess who’s turning three in May.
And George? Well, he wants to be a police officer.
While chatting with PC Jayne Richardson at The Met Excellence Awards at Kensington Palace on Tuesday, Prince William talked about George’s obsession with everything police.
“He is obsessed, actually, by the police. The cars, the toys, everything,” Prince William said, People reports.
To which PC Richardson extended an invitation: “We are recruiting, actually so if George and Charlotte are keen?”
LISTEN: Why does Kate Middleton always kneel? Post continues below.
Police officers and dancers aside, Prince George and Princess Charlotte are fast growing up.
In September last year, Prince George started primary school at the private Thomas’s School in Battersea – a short drive from his home at Kensington Palace.
