Princess Charlotte has received a message from Shakira after her father Prince William revealed she goes ‘crazy’ dancing to the singing sensation’s songs.
The Duke of Cambridge, 39, shared his six-year-old daughter’s music taste when appearing on an Apple podcast titled Prince William: Time To Walk.
During his recording, made while walking through the Queen’s Sandringham estate, the future king covered a wide range of topics from the emotional effect of working as an air ambulance pilot to being out of his ‘comfort zone’ singing on stage with Taylor Swift and Jon Bon Jovi.
He also revealed in the podcast, released today, that Princess Charlotte goes ‘crazy’ dancing to Shakira, and how an AC/DC song is a ‘Monday morning’ track that gets him ‘back into the grind of the week’.
After hearing the royal youngster was a fan, Shakira took to Twitter and wrote: ‘I’m so pleased you like my music, Princess Charlotte!’ alongside a heart emoji.

In a lighter moment during the walk William said Shakira’s track Waka Waka is loved by Charlotte, and his daughter dances to the song – apparently mimicking the Colombian singer’s video moves – and dresses as a ballerina for the performance.
Waka Waka was the official 2010 FIFA World Cup song.
The duke said: ‘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.
‘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.’
William said he was ‘amazed’ how his three children had inherited his family’s love of music and ‘most mornings there’s a massive fight between Charlotte and George as to what song is played in the morning’.
To keep order in the Cambridge household the duke said he alternates between his two eldest children as to who can pick the music.

He said about his final music choice in the podcast: ‘There’s nothing better than, on a Monday morning, when you’re a bit bleary-eyed after the weekend and trying to get yourself back into the grind of the week, listening to AC/DC – Thunderstruck.’
The duke added: ‘It absolutely wakes you up, puts your week in the best mood possible, and you feel like you can take on anything and anyone.’
Elsewhere, the duke revealed a Tina Turner hit brings back treasured memories of his mother singing it at the ‘top of her voice’ with her sons as she drove them to school.
William shared the poignant ‘family moment’ in his audio walking tour recorded for Apple, and described how Diana, Princess of Wales took him to a homeless shelter to teach him the important lesson – there is life outside ‘palace walls’.
In the candid chat, William said he still ‘secretly’ likes the Turner song The Best, one of a number Diana would play to ease the anxiety as she took him and the Duke of Sussex back to school, thought to be Ludgrove in Berkshire.
The duke said: ‘Because sitting in the backseat singing away, it felt like a real family moment. 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.’
With birdsong in the background, he added: ‘You’d be singing and listening to music right the way up to the gates of school when they dropped you off and that’s when reality kind of sunk in – you really were going back to school.
‘Because before that you’re lost in songs – want to play it again, just to keep that family moment going. And when I listen to it now it takes me back to those car rides and brings back lots of memories of my mother.’
