Princess Kate lets slip previously unknown morning ritual with Charlotte, George and Louis

Prince William had previously revealed that his family of four throws a dance party almost every morning to Shakira’s hit song Waka-Waka.

During a visit with England’s wheelchair rugby league team this week, the mother-of-three revealed that she stays fit by jumping on the trampoline, giving one of the players insight into her workout routine.

Asked if she went to the gym, the 41-year-old said her morning routine with her three children was already a workout in itself.

She said: “It’s running around after the children – I do it all, whenever I can squeeze in exercise I do, even jumping on the trampoline with my children before school.”

Prince Louis’ favourite sport was also hinted at by the Princess of Wales who said: “They all love sport and Louis is mad about rugby. They are at an age where they just love running around.”

Tom Coyd, the team captain, echoed the Princess’ praise of Louis’ abilities on the field.

He said: “She said Louis is doing tag rugby at school. She was saying that it is quite basic at the minute, that he is just getting to grips with the passing and the running around. But when you are four-and-a-half you just want to get the ball and run in any direction.”

William had previously shared their ritual of throwing dance parties.

“And I have to, now, basically prioritise that one day someone does this one, and another day it’s someone else’s turn. So George gets his go, then Charlotte gets her go. Such is the clamour for the music.”

The proud dad also revealed that Charlotte takes advantage of the opportunity to demonstrate her dancing abilities. The 6-year-old has been known to take private ballet lessons.

He said: “Charlotte, particularly, is running around the kitchen in her dresses and ballet stuff and everything. She goes completely crazy with Louis following her around trying to do the same thing.”

These morning dances sometimes lead to disputes between Charlotte and George as to what song gets played in the morning, confessed the father, whose two children now take turns to pick their favourite song.

Shakira recently tweeted about learning that she was a favourite in the royal household, saying: “I’m so pleased you like my music Princess Charlotte.”
