Speaking on Apple's Time To Walk podcast series, Prince William revealed that music is a constant source of entertainment in the Cambridge household and his daughter family is a huge fan of Shakira.

The Prince revealed, "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 with a lot of dressing up."

The Prince added that his daughter in particular is a huge fan of the popstar and often dances around the kitchen with her little brother.

Prince William also revealed that music can cause a 'huge fight' among his eldest children as he admitted, "most mornings there’s a massive fight between Charlotte and George as to what song is played in the morning."

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

Also in the interview, Prince William revealed the one thing that brings back precious memories of his mother Princess Diana, as he continued to talk about music and how it has played an important part in his life.

After this story was published by the Metro about Princess Charlotte's love of Shakira, the popstar herself took to social media to give the young royal a special shout-out.

"I’m so pleased you like my music Princess Charlotte!" said Shakira. To this, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge responded on behalf of their daughter with a red heart emoji and a dancing woman emoji.

Despite the youngsters fighting the Prince painted a wholesome image of the young Cambridge family dancing around the kitchen and enjoying music with one another in the mornings.

Princess Charlotte's love of dancing around the kitchen is a habit from the young royal that breaks the Queen's royal tradition. Allowing their daughter to behave in this manner is also one of the parenting tactics used by Prince William and Kate that Her Majesty can't stand.
