As parents we try to encourage our kids to try out a whole host of different things so they can find their own way in life and find something that makes them tick.


However, for some they have a natural pull towards certain things, which is clearly evident with Princess Charlotte who, at just 17-months-of-age, is already passionate about horses – something the Queen is well known for.


The Duchess of Cambridge made the revelation while meeting athletes from the Olympics and Paralympics at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.



Kate was talking to equestrian triple gold medalist Natasha Baker when she said that little Charlotte shared the same love of horses that Queen Elizabeth does, something that Kate herself does not echo.


“I asked her how the children were, and she said Charlotte is really enjoying her riding — which is great to hear,” Natasha explained to People magazine.


“I said we may see her here on a line-up in 20 years time. She emphasised that Charlotte has this passion about horses and although she doesn’t echo it, she’ll do her best to champion and encourage it.”



Aw, hopefully we'll be seeing Charlotte in an Olympic line-up in a few years. 


SHARE if your little one has a passion for horses!
