Royals need some bonding time as well, don’t they? And well, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, and her daughter, Princess Charlotte, had the best mother-daughter outing last week as they went to the ballet! What better place to take a little princess at, than the ballet, right?
Reportedly, the two attended a rehearsal of the Royal Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker.
The 36-year-old Duchess took her three-year-old daughter at the Royal Opera House, in London to see The Nutcracker before it opened on Monday, December 3.
Though it is not known on what day exactly the royal duo attended the ballet, pictures showing the two in the auditorium began making the rounds on social media. Kate is seen looking sophisticated as ever in a close-fitting black turtleneck and a grey tartan skirt, whereas Charlotte was decked in white, wearing a dress with puffy sleeves.
They apparently visited the theatre in privacy, as a visit has not been announced.
Princess Charlotte is said to be a big fan of ballet, seemingly taking after her grandmother Princess Diana who also loved both ballet and dance in general. Her big brother, five-year-old Prince George, even takes ballet lessons at his school, Thomas’s Battersea.
And The Duchess is no novice at the show either, as she also made a surprise appearance at an evening performance of the show last year (pictured below).
Kate, who was at the time pregnant with Prince Louis took the time to talk to the dancers afterward, with one of them, soloist Meaghan Hinkis, even sharing a picture with the Duchess to social media.
“To say I was excited to meet the Duchess, is a colossal understatement,” the dancer captioned the Instagram post.
The Nutcracker, by the Royal Ballet, opened at the Royal Opera House on 3 December and will be shown until 15 January and has received numerous praise, being referred to as “fun for the whole family”.
