Princess Charlotte

Princess Charlotte has taken up one of Queen Elizabeth’s favourite hobbies.


It’s really hard to stick to one hobby when you’re growing up. The same is the case with Charlotte who’s following the Queen’s hobby.

 It’s not a surprise that Princess Charlotte is following her great-grandmother’s hobbies.

In case you need another reason to be jealous of Princess Charlotte, here’s one (just kidding). She has officially taken up one of Queen Elizabeth’s favourite hobbies. Princess Charlotte is already known as Queen Elizabeth’s mini-me by many royal experts and now, they are sharing the same hobbies too.

The young royal has started horseback riding: Her Majesty, who is 96-years-old now, used to ride horses regularly until last year. In fact, she has been an avid rider for years. Riding is the most favourite hobby among royals in general. Charlotte’s elder brother, Prince George, reportedly took up the sport at an even younger age of two.
