Princess Charlotte Loves Olives, Clearly Has a Sophisticated Palate

During a recent royal engagement, Kate Middleton revealed a particularly interesting tidbit about her young daughter: she loves olives.

Now, we know that Princess Charlotte is mature for her age. The way she handles herself in public, for instance, all smiles and waves, is extremely impressive for anyone, let alone a three-year-old. But this threw us. What toddler likes olives?!

Clearly we were underestimating the princess. Not only does she enjoy that acquired taste, she's already well on her way to making her own home-cooked meals. Kate also mentioned today that she cooks alongside both Charlotte and her elder brother, Prince George. According to royal reporter Rebecca English, the three successfully made cheesy pasta the other day. (As we all know, cheesy pasta is the gateway meal to avant-garde cuisine.)


Of course, as a princess, she's been surrounded by all manner of elevated fare. Her mother's nickname for her, we recently learned, is the undeniably posh "poppet." She's taken with literature, such as The Gruffalo, and has a particular soft spot for ballet. Kate took her to a preview of The Nutcracker this past December, a treat likely inspired by Charlotte's long-established love of dance. "She absolutely loves it," Kate told English National Ballet director Tamara Rojo back in 2017.

Prince William, for his part, seems equally supportive of his daughter's nascent passion. "My daughter Charlotte loves dancing," he told Malta's Prime Minister Joseph Muscat a little under a year ago.

Given all this, we really shouldn't have been surprised that Charlotte is so taken with such an adult food. After olives, it's only a matter of time before the young sophisticate develops a taste for blue cheese and caviar.
