  • Shakira sent a note to Princess Charlotte after her father Prince William admitted she was going “crazy” dancing to his music.


    As part of the Time To Walk series for Apple Fitness+, the Duke of Cambridge has shared his children’s favorite song. Prince William said his two eldest children, Prince George, eight, and Princess Charlotte, six, take turns selecting music.

    The prince and princess have recently made more public appearances that reflect their personalities, including when they were seen trying out a tricky water sport while on a family vacation.

    Princess Charlotte, who turned six in May, and her mother, Kate, are known to be close. To the surprise of royal fans, Charlotte even seems to have inherited a sweet habit from her mother.

    Now Prince William has revealed he and his daughter have an equally sweet relationship, as he said: “One of the songs the kids are loving right now is Shakira, Waka Waka.

    “There are a lot of hip movements. There are a lot of disguises.

    The proud father-of-three continued: “Charlotte, in particular, runs around the kitchen with her dresses and ballet stuff and everything. She goes absolutely crazy with Louis following her around trying to do the same thing.

    Shakira seemed to have heard of it and took to Twitter to share a sweet message for Charlotte.

    She wrote “I’m so glad you like my music Princess Charlotte!”

    The Duke and Duchess’ official Twitter account responded to the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer with the dancer and heart emojis.

    Princess Charlotte isn’t the only member of The Firm to have ties to the pop singer. she is also a member of the Earthshot Prize Council, which Prince William launched in 2020.

    Shakira also starred alongside the Duke and Sir David Attenborough in a five-part BBC documentary series about the world’s toughest environmental problems and how to tackle them.
