Just last week, Kate Middleton revealed that her three young children were getting into the Christmas spirit. As she said recently in an Instagram video captured by a fan, "They’re getting excited for Christmas time, because they’ve started all their Christmas songs and the Christmas trees are going up."

Now, we've learned that in the run-up to the holidays, Kate went the extra mile for her only daughter. Last week, she took Charlotte to a rehearsal performance of the Royal Opera House's The Nutcracker—meaning the young royal was able to see it before it was open to the public. The Duchess of Cambridge must have known it would be worth a girls-only outing, as she attended the same show last year alongside Queen Elizabeth.

It also makes sense that Kate chose this particular Christmastime event for Charlotte, as the three-year-old princess has a well-established love of dance. The Duchess previously told English National Ballet director Tamara Rojo of the toddler's passion, saying "She absolutely loves it."

Prince William, ever the proud father, has also commented on the subject. This past March, he revealed to Malta's Prime Minister Joseph Muscat that "My daughter Charlotte loves dancing."

It must run in the family: Princess Diana was an avid fan as well. As William said to Tamara Rojo, his late mother "loved dancing, she was a fantastic dancer. We've been going through her music collection recently and there's some quite eclectic stuff in there. She was elated by the skill."
