Prince William Made An Unexpected Prediction About Princess Charlotte's Future

The royal family is one like no other. Each member is constantly in the public eye. But if there's one thing people love more than watching what royals wear, it's seeing the family evolve and grow. The world watched as Prince William and Prince Harry went from little boys to men, and now people get to see the same happen with their own children. It turns out that Prince William has big plans for his only daughter, and not in the profession that you might think. 


As we could tell from Prince Louis' enthusiastic Platinum Jubilee performance, each of Prince William and Kate Middleton's children has a personality of their own. While Prince George, the future King of England, keeps it together most of the time, his little brother is quirky and can't be tamed. Princess Charlotte is a bit more reserved as well. It looks like she has some secret talents that might just take her far though.

Here's everything you need to know about her potential future profession. Because the possibilities are endless at this age, but Prince William's comments are telling. 

Princess Charlotte could be a future soccer star

Everyone believes that their children are the best and brightest. But it's one thing if our average citizen parents say it and another when the someday king of England does. According to Newsweek, the entire family loves soccer but there's one person who might just be on her way to stardom — Princess Charlotte.


Prince William is the President of Britain's Football Association (FA), and he was presented with jerseys for his kids while he was visiting the women's team. During that time he chose to share — well, Princess Charlotte asked him to share — some stories about her soccer success. "Charlotte wants me to tell you she's really good in goal. She said 'please tell them that,'" Prince William said, according to Newsweek.

According to the publication, the father of three also added that Princess Charlotte is "a budding star for the future!" Princess Charlotte is only 7 years old, so there's no telling that just yet. It's never hurt to have friends in high places though.

David Beckham is a close royal family friend

It wouldn't come as a complete surprise that Princess Charlotte becomes a soccer superstar. After all, according to Express, David Beckham is a long time friend to both Prince William and Harry. He came to both the royals' weddings and even gave Queen Elizabeth an Instagram tribute during the Platinum Jubilee (via Hello!). 


"It's a very normal relationship. With Harry as well," Beckham said to Express. "They're very easy to get along with. They love their sport." We're sure all it would take would be a quick call from dad to get his daughter some pointers from one of soccer's best of all times. 

Only time will tell how good Princess Charlotte really is at soccer, but it is fun to see the kids starting to show their personality and passions to the public. Fingers crossed that there's a whole lot more of that to come as the three little royals grow up. 

Princess Charlotte has plenty of other hobbies too

Aside from being a budding soccer star, Princess Charlotte's interests lie in many of the same places as other little girls her age. During the 2018 Commonwealth Day celebrations, Prince William proudly told Joseph Muscat, the Prime Minister of Malta, that she "loves dancing," per Hello!. Muscat informed the prince that his own daughters were attending stage school, which prompted William's excited response. Charlotte's love of dancing is well-documented, with her mother, Kate Middleton, sharing the titbit with National Ballet director Tamara Rojo, as Hello Giggles reported at the time. Her late grandmother, Princess Diana, was widely known as a dance lover, so William reckons that's where she gets it from.


Elsewhere, the mini royal followed in Queen Elizabeth's footsteps when she took up horseback riding. The Mirror notes that the Duchess of Cambridge shared her daughter's hobby with triple-gold medalist equestrian Natasha Baker, who revealed, "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." 

Elsewhere, per People, Charlotte was a huge "Peppa Pig" fan in her earlier years, while the whole Cambridge family regularly enjoys doing arts and crafts projects together too. If soccer doesn't work out, the princess clearly has several other options to choose from.

The little royal's personality has been showing more often

Although she kept her younger brother in check at the Jubilee, Princess Charlotte is still a kid like any other, and sometimes, she forgets she's even royal. Express reports that Charlotte is frequently photographed making faces or smiling huge for the camera, and often interacts with onlookers, at various official appearances, by greeting them warmly. The princess delighted the crowds at the 2019 King's Cup by boldly sticking her tongue out after seeing her grandfather, Michael Middleton, across the way.


Funnily enough, the outlet also notes that, according to body language expert Judi James, Charlotte has more in common with the late Princess Diana than most people would realize. "Charlotte, looking touchingly like the Queen when she was small, showed body language traits that are more like her Granny Diana," James pointed out. "Like Diana, she gives the initial impression of shyness, but beneath that appears to be an outgoing, fun personality." She also seems aware of the cameras, as Diana always was.

However, as her demure behavior at the Jubilee proved, Charlotte is also capable of keeping her siblings in line if the situation calls for it. James told The Sun, "Charlotte was quietly and calmly on patrol for the celebrations, showing not just her ability to get all the regal stuff right, but also a trait of checking and correcting her brother's performances, too." A balance of well-behaved and precocious seems just right for a princess.
