^^Cute.  Loves the camera but still nice photos.  My only objection would be this one.

I wouldn’t have released it.  Not that it’s wrong, it’s just a little too revealing for such a little girl.

Some of the DM sugars are saying she looks like the Queen. Will this ever stop?

I too thought the outfit is too revealing. She looks like she's just wearing tights and a coat, isn't she cold? esp sitting in those stone steps.. They are dressing her the Goldsmith/ Middleton way, they don't know any different.
Whilst I find her inappropriately dressed (too revealing and too cold), the whole outfit is cute, she's decked out in all red (dress too!).

C is still very clearly a Goldmsith girl, but has changed quite a bit and looks more like herself rather than a carbon copy of Scarole/ Pippy.

The coat cost £120

Supposedly Waity took the pics

Wow, yes I didn't notice the lack of dress underneath until now. Must be a very short dress. I like the coat but it seems very impractical to send a child off to nursery school wearing something that cost £120. Charlotte is probably going to grow up to be a clothes horse.

Just like her mother was when she was dating William... You can't beat genetics!!!

I think that history is going to repeat itself... Charles and Ann... and if the next baby is a girl, poor George!!!
Let's pray to make sure that they will not make this boy feel bad and grow up as a broken individual...

I don't think Charlotte and George will necessarily be Anne and Charles.  I don't think it matters if the next is a boy or a girl to George. In any case, he is the Heir. And perhaps there would be more opportunity for George to have sibling rivalry if the next is a boy

I am wondering if there is some sort of a clique that pounces on Charlotte articles writing over and over how she looks like the Queen. Really strange IMO.

Post by: Little light on January 08, 2018, 06:53:42 pm
For the children's sake, I'm glad the photos are taken by Ma and Pa because they, th children, might find it daunting having to face school/nursery, look happy etc with a stranger taking your photo. Quite a lot for a toddler to cope with. .

And yes I know, KM keeps the rights and royalties for the photos, but I wasn't meaning that part.

And I don't like the second photo either. You would think that she would be taught to close her legs, but obvious not and I like the shoes too.

From the leg spread, it looks like she's doing what mummy does.  :P. I have never seen any resemblance to Liz in this child; she is full on Ma Midds.

Post by: sandy on January 08, 2018, 07:54:01 pm
the weird thing is that the posts of her looking just like the Queen get many green arrows. Now the Queen Mum is added to some posts as someone Charlotte resembles. A clique or palace staff at work?

IMO Char looks more Middleton than anything, though she seems to have a mischievous twinkle in her eye. However, in these latest photos she seems to have lost the squinty-eyed look that so resembled Carole and funnily enough appears to look more like Sarah Chatto! Hope she enjoys her first day at nursery school.

She's definitely wearing a dress, it can be seen in both pics!

The pics are exactly like Jackson's though, when I saw them I thought he took them and not Kate.
In the pic where she's standing she must be smiling at mummy nanny Maria another person there with them..

I thought we were told waity and co were at Amner Hall - they were at church at Sandringham yesterday and supposedly spending the weekend and her birthday there tomorrow yet we're told  she took these pics of Char today at KP?   I guess when you have a helicopter at your disposal 100+ mike's both ways is nothing. Nanny Maria's probably at KP with the children now..

They had to be back in London by Monday/Tuesday as both the kids are at school which is why they were at Anmer for the weekend to celebrate the birthday on the weekend before returning to London for school. George's school resumes on Tuesday while Charlotte's started on Monday.

They do go to Anmer most weekends during term time - drive up Friday after school and then back Sunday evening ready for the new school week. Has been different over the past few weeks as George has been on holidays so they have been at Anmer most of the time.

That is their intention - London during the week during term time and Anmer for weekends and holidays.

The DM must have people posting saying she looks like the Queen. They even had a spin off article saying the girl looks like the Queen Mum AND the Queen. WHo are they kidding? I think they want to wipe out MIddleton and Spencer genes from the kid.

I think the QM resemblance is enhanced by that childhood photo of Elizabeth wearing much the same hairstyle. Charlotte certainly isn't like the great-great grandmother in colouring. She had large blue eyes, a lovely complexion and dark hair.

Sarah looks more like an Armstrong-Jones not a Windsor IMO. So I doubt Charlotte will grow up looking like Sarah Chatto.

I don't see any Queen mother resemblance after all she's a great great grandmother.

I see a lot of Middleton in her.

A relative of someone working very close to Kate said one of the reasons she takes the photos herself is that she can photoshop them.  That might explain why Charlotte's eyes have changed from Ma's squinty ones to the rounder ones of now.

There were quite a lot of comments on her slitty eyes and possible reasons but that discussion is fir MO!  It's known the kids or TPTB monitor comments so she obviously picked up on that.

The change in her eye shape has also been commented on on other forums

I'm sorry.  I didn't realize this is only for MO forums.  My comment was directed only at the suggestion that Kate had photoshopped the pictures, not anything about Charlotte's looks.  Obviously, I wasn't clear enough about that. :shy:

You are right BostonLibby though, her eye shape has dramatically changed and can only be accounted for by Photoshopping which Kate is known to do.

Princess Charlotte 'can already speak Spanish' to her Palencia-born nanny aged just TWO and is a very 'sweet and confident' little girl

    Princess Charlotte can reportedly already speak some Spanish
    Her nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo is from Palencia, Spain
    Sources also say she is a very 'sweet and confident' little girl
    This follows reports she already is a 'natural tennis player'


Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5259989/Princess-Charlotte-2-speak-Spanish.html

I should hope so, one amazing thing for any child is to grow up bilingual. And if she is growing up bilingual, it isn't that unbelievable that she "can already speak Spanish" and even less so the need to emphasize "TWO" like this. Ffs.
Any why the emphasis on C, isn't G growing up the same way? What a weird article.

Many many complaints re above and also the way they can use exclusive clubs without being members when others have to wait years and years to join.  A typical one below.
 
'Everyone is heartily sick of the undeserved privileges of the RF particularly Kate and William.  The best seats everywhere, no queuing, entree to the best clubs whilst members have to wait for years and years to join.  They really are contributing to the fast downfall of the Monarchy.  Those close say they are off soon on yet another holiday too.'  Members are complaining at PC being allowed to use the courts when not a member.

In the xmas card her eyes look more their Asiatic shape. And she looked more mixed race. These pics look to me that PC was.photoshopped to look more Caucasian.  :thumbsdown:

PC is a beautiful little girl but she isn't being taught the golden rule (even if wearing shorts under dress): knees and ankles, knees and ankles!! PW should know better than this. What's next? Bending over at the waist in public to retrieve something on the ground? Sheesh!

Don't you just love how KM and co keep outing themselves at every turn?  They are not high end. They are downtown girls. They should just accept they are poor trash conjobbers. Everyone else has. :cookie:

Title: Re: Princess Charlotte Thread (Read post #1 before posting) 2018
Post by: HRH Tiana of NOLA on January 14, 2018, 01:04:43 am
I thought all of their official last names are Mountbatten-Windsor.


Title: Re: Princess Charlotte Thread (Read post #1 before posting) 2018
Post by: meememe on January 14, 2018, 01:26:49 am
Their official surname is Mountbatten-Windsor but it is rare that any of them use that while at school. It is a mouthful. William and Harry were known as 'Wales' at school and again in the military. Beatrice and Eugenie were known as 'York' at school.

I have heard that both Louise and James only use 'Windsor' at school.

As a result I would expect both George and Charlotte to use 'Cambridge' at the moment. It will be interesting to see what may happen if they are still a school when the Queen passes - will they remain 'Cambridge' or become initially 'Cornwall' or 'Cornwall and Cambridge' or wait until William is created Prince of Wales and then move across to 'Wales'. Their titles will change so many times throughout their lives - especially George's:

HRH Prince George of Cambridge
HRH Prince George of Cornwall and Cambridge
HRH Prince George of Wales
HRH The Duke of Cornwall
HRH The Prince of Wales
HM The King

The only one who had more throughout his lifetime would have been Edward VIII who added HRH The Duke of Windsor at the end.

Charlotte and the new baby will be:

'of Cambridge'
'of Cornwall and Cambridge'
'of Wales'
'The Princess Charlotte' and The Prince/Princess xxxx'
and finally I suspect HRH The Princess Royal and if the next child is a boy HRH The Duke of xxx but if a girl she would remain HRH The Princess yyy and then add her husband's name and become Mrs zzzz



Title: Re: Princess Charlotte Thread (Read post #1 before posting) 2018
Post by: leogirl on January 14, 2018, 11:35:16 pm
Mountbatten-Windsor is for male-line descendants without royal titles and styles. PW, PH, PB and PE are all princes and princesses so they don't use that name. Peter and Zara are female-line, and Louise and James have that name but I guess they use 'Windsor' at school. The princes and princesses used 'Mountbatten-Windsor' for the marriage registry because a surname was required, but technically they don't have surnames.

I am not sure if George and Charlotte will switch names at school. It might be easier to keep using 'Cambridge' since that is the name they started with.
