SHE loves spiders, bossing her older brother about – and, as her dad revealed on TV this week, she is also very “cheeky”.
Like most children her age, Princess Charlotte delights in sticking her tongue out at photographers.
She may only be five but she has already become the nation’s little darling.
Charlotte made history when she came into the world just after 8.30am on May 2, 2015, in the same hospital wing where her brother George and father were born.
Weighing 8lbs 3oz — three ounces less than Prince George — she was fourth in line to the throne and the first princess to benefit from the change of succession law, stating that girls would not be overtaken by future younger brothers.
After mum and dad proudly showed Charlotte off to the world on the steps of the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, West London, the fountain in Trafalgar Square turned pink.
She was named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, after the Queen and her grandmother, Princess Diana.
And she is as much a natural in front of the camera as her famous grans — after all, Diana’s favourite photographer Mario Testino took Charlotte’s official photo.
With every day that goes by, she looks more and more like The Queen.
On her first foreign trip — to Canada with her dad, mum Kate, and Prince George in September 2016 — Charlotte proved she was happy in the spotlight when she said her first public words at a children’s party.
The 16-month-old Princess shouted “pop!” when she saw a big bunch of balloons and called Prince William “Da Da” when he gave her a hug.
Like many little girls, her favourite colour is pink and she has a soft spot for unicorns.
Charlotte is a fan of cheesy pasta and olives. Her love of Mediterranean food may come from their nanny, Maria Turrion Borrallo, who has taught Charlotte to speak Spanish.
She has a feisty personality, like great-aunt Princess Anne, and at Willcocks Nursery School her nickname was Warrior Princess.
But Charlotte looked a blooming angel in the documentary Prince William: A Planet For Us All on Monday, when we saw her displaying her mother’s love of gardening.
The Sun’s royal photographer Arthur Edwards said: “When I see Princess Charlotte’s smile I instantly see the Queen.
“When the Queen smiles, everything always seems better in the world.”
