Seems like Princess Charlotte might just have a shot at becoming an Olympic athlete. At a Buckingham Palace reception for British Olympians and Paralympians, Kate Middleton revealed that her 17-month-young daughter already has a favorite sport: riding horses. The Duchess of Cambridge reportedly shared this tidbit with two-time Paralympic gold medalist and equestrian Natasha Baker, who then told reporters that the little princess is quite the rider.
“I asked her how the children were, and she said Charlotte is really enjoying her riding, which is great to hear,” Natasha told People. “I said we may see her here on a line-up in 20 years time. She emphasized that Charlotte has this passion about horses, and although she doesn’t echo it, she’ll do her best to champion and encourage it.”
Of course, Charlotte’s brother Prince George isn’t without his hobbies. Kate spoke with Paralympic gold medalist and swimmer Ellie Simmons, who said that the duchess was “telling me how George likes swimming.” Kate added, “George is fascinated by fencing, but I think that’s because of the face shields.” Perhaps a run for the 2020 Olympics?
