The littlest royal, Princess Charlotte, never got to meet her grandmother, Princess Diana, but it turns out they may still share a special bond in their love of dancing.
The Duchess of Cambridge revealed yesterday that Charlotte, two, has taken up dance lessons! She was greeting representatives of charities which were close to Diana’s heart and checking out the tributes left at Kensington Palace on the 20th anniversary of the late princess’ death when she made the uber-cute revelation.
“She absolutely loves it,” Catherine said.
Of course, Diana loved a turn on the dance floor more than anything, and there are plenty of photos of her taking her dancing shoes for a spin. In fact, the photos where she is dancing may just be the ones where she looks her happiest – except for of course when she was with her beloved sons.
Diana took up dancing when she was just a little girl like Charlotte too, studying ballet, tap, contemporary, and jazz, and later, was involved in a lot of fundraising for the English National Ballet.
During the palace visit, William told the director of the English National Ballet, Tamara Rojo, that he remembered his mum’s passion for dance well.
“We’ve got plenty of pictures. I remember her showing me ballet shoes she had been given and she was so proud of them,” he said.
“She loved dancing, she was a fantastic dancer.”
