Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, are doing their best to keep their children’s lives as normal as any of their classmates. But the five-year-old has become intrigued by a small toy tiara which she loves wearing around school as she acts like a “respectable princess” royal sources claim.
The new nickname characterises her unique role as a royal and her “tomboy” nature.
A source said: “Charlotte knows she’s a princess and already has a toy tiara, which she loves wearing.
“While the kids know there’s something special about them [Charlotte and her siblings], they’re not spoiled.”
Charlotte is likely to be given the title of Princess Royal at some point after William eventually ascends the throne, Express.co.uk previously revealed.
Royal expert Katie Nicholl said her nickname is because she “is quite a tomboy” who loves adventure and, in particular, tree climbing.
Another source also told US Weekly earlier this year Princess Charlotte feels so grown up after turning five in May.
They added: “She doesn’t feel intimidated in front of crowds of people unlike most kids her age.”
There is no time scale on when Charlotte could start wearing a real crown, with commentators noting Princess Anne’s decision to first publicly wear a tiara aged 17.

She said, “pop!” after spotting balloons and “da da” to William as he gave her a cuddle.
The party, during a royal visit, saw the family, including Prince George, travel to spots around the Commonwealth nation.
George, then three, ran over when he spotted a balloon animal being made for his little sister.
Charlotte began school last year, accompanying her brother to the exclusive Thomas’s Battersea in London.
During the coronavirus pandemic, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been at their Norfolk home with the three children.
The family were also spotted enjoying a summer holiday outing at Mable’s Paint Pot in Kings Lynn.
