Kate speaks of Princess Charlotte as she meets adorable two-year-old during latest visit

The Princess of Wales mentioned her daughter Princess Charlotte as she met an adorable two-year-old with the same name during a visit to Swansea. During her visit to St Thomas Church, Kate kneeled down to chat with little Charlotte who, to mark the royal visit, donned the traditional Welsh costume. 

The senior royal beamed after learning the child shared the same name of her own seven-year-old daughter.

She told the baby: “Your name is Charlotte? I have a Charlotte at home too.”

Kate then went on to mention where the third-in-line to the throne was while the Prince and Princess of Wales were carrying out their important visit.

She said: “Do you know where my Charlotte is? She’s in school with her brothers George and Louis.”

Kate and Prince William’s three children started attending together Lambrook School in Berkshire earlier this month.

Their first full day of classes at the institution distancing only a 15-minute drive from the Wales family’s new home, Adelaide Cottage, was on September 8.

The Sun also reported the princess appeared to tell Charlotte her daughter “got plaits today”, referring to a hairstyle the seven-year-old has been seen with in public in the past.

Little Charlotte was one of the many children to give Kate a posy of flowers throughout her day in Wales.

As she was walking the crowded pavements in Swansea alongside Prince William, the princess stopped to console a boy and wipe away the tears from his cheeks after he felt overwhelmed by the royal meeting.

Little Charlotte was the daughter of Reverend Steven Bunting and his wife Rachel.

Rev Bunting leads St Thomas Church, a community hub offering several services in support of Swansea residents.

The redeveloped church hosts a community kitchen, which teaches parents and children how to cook, as well as a food bank visited by William.


The Prince of Wales admitted his wife is the better cook among them, saying: “Kate is a very good cook.

“I do very good breakfasts. Bacon, sausage and egg, I can do that.”

The church also provides help to vulnerable mothers through a baby bank, which gives essential items for children to those in need.

The princess spoke to two community nursery nurses who refer mums to the church’s service.

One of them, Nurse Francesca Cordone, told Kate: “This is a godsend to so many mothers. We refer people weekly.”

Kate asked: “Are more people needing to be referred now because of the cost-of-living crisis?”

To which the nurse said they were seeing “lots more”.

Kate, who has focused much of her work on the early year and providing children with the best start in life, visited baby banks during the summer of 2020 and brought together 19 British brands and retailers to donate more than 10,000 new items to some 40 such banks nationwide.

Yesterday’s royal visit to Wales marked Kate and William’s first official engagement since the end of the royal mourning period and their first trip to the nation since King Charles III created his firstborn Prince of Wales on September 9.

During the walkabout in Swansea, which followed a visit to Anglesey, William mentioned he is learning Welsh, a move which, according to Rev Bunting, shows he is taking being Prince of Wales “very, very seriously”.

Ahead of Kate and William’s arrival in Wales, it emerged William has no plans for “any kind” of an investiture as Prince of Wales like the one held for his father at Caernarfon Castle in July 1969.
