PRINCESS CHARLOTTE received a sweet message from Shakira after it emerged the little royal is currently obsessed with one of the Colombian singer’s hits. Shakira stated she was “pleased” to hear Princess Charlotte, six, is among her fans. In a deeply personal episode of Apple Fitness+’s Time To Walk, Prince William revealed his children – and in particular his daughter – are currently loving Shakira’s Waka Waka.
Hearing one of her most famous hit songs has struck a chord even among British royalty, Shakira took to Twitter and wrote: “I’m so pleased you like my music Princess Charlotte!” Prince William gave a glimpse inside his children’s morning routine while discussing his family’s love for music and walks.
In a special episode of Time To Walk, the proceeds from which will benefit three mental health charities, the Duke of Cambridge said: “Most mornings there’s a massive fight between Charlotte and George as to what song is played in the morning.
“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 clamor for the music.” William continued: “One of the songs that the children are loving at the moment is Shakira, ‘Waka Waka’.
“There’s a lot of hip movements going along. There’s a lot of dressing up.” Referring to Charlotte’s private ballet lessons, the future King added: “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.
“It’s a really happy moment where the children just enjoy dancing, messing around, and, and singing.” Prince William’s episode of Time To Walk is premiering on Monday on Apple Fitness+ and Apple Music 1.
People tuning in will hear the Duke sharing memories, glimpses of his life behind closed doors and lessons learned while he walks from Sandringham House – the Queen’s residence in Norfolk – to Anmer Hall – the Cambridge’s second home.
The Duke of Cambridge decided to take part in Time To Walk, an audio series launched in January by Apple, “in the hope of inspiring a few other people to get active and take time for their own mental health”, as he said in a tweet on Friday.
Speaking further about his family’s love for music, Prince William recalled one of the songs his late mother Princess Diana would often play in her car while taking him and Prince Harry to school. Sharing a deeply intimate moment from his childhood, the Duke said: “When I was younger, Harry and I, we were at boarding school.
“And my mother used to play all sorts of songs to kind of while away the anxiety of going back to school. “And one of the songs I massively remember and has stuck with me all this time, and I still, to this day, still quite enjoy secretly, is Tina Turner’s ‘The Best’ because sitting in the backseat, singing away, it felt like a real family moment.”
Speaking about the Princess of Wales, he added: “And my mother, she’d be driving along, singing at the top of her voice. “And we’d even get the policeman in the car, he’d be occasionally singing along, as well.” He continued: “You’d be singing and listening to the music right the way out into the gates of school, when they dropped you off.”
This song, William revealed, brings him back to those happy car rides whenever he listens to it. He said: “When I listen to it now, it takes me back to those car rides and brings back lots of memories of my mother.”
Among other topics the Duke touched upon during the programme there was also spending Christmas at Sandringham and “giggling” during the service. On a more serious note, he opened up on mental health and the importance of taking care of it – in particular for people who work on the frontline.
