Princess Charlotte ‘looks very grown up’, says expert
The only daughter of Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, turned six this month, and the occasion was marked by a new image of Charlotte posted by her mother. It showed Charlotte smiling at the camera, sporting a floral dress with a Peter Pan collar, and was taken by Kate inside the Cambridge family home in Norfolk. William said Charlotte had had a “great day” and they were able to invite another family to mark the occasion, adding, “They are growing up really fast. It was a lot of fun.”
Such is the continuing influence of the royal family, the dress worn by Charlotte, by children’s wear designer Rachel Riley, immediately sold out with the brand, a particular firm favorite.
Charlotte is expected to continue to influence fashion, as well as charitable causes, throughout her life as she grows up to be one of the most important members of the royal family.
And as a result of the Succession to the Crown Act of 2013, his fourth-in-line place to the throne will not be moved until his older brother, Prince George, has children of his own in the future.
The law replaced the archaic rules which meant that men were ahead of women in the line of succession, but this has been overhauled and the new law means that the eldest child, regardless of gender, precedes any sibling.

Katie Nicholl, a royal commentator, told Amazon Prime Documentary 2017 Kate Middleton: The Working Class in Windsor that the fact that she was born after the law was passed by Parliament made her a “really important girl. “.
She said: “I think when it was announced that they had had a baby girl it was a cause of national holiday. Of course a little sister for Prince George, the girl Prince William had always wanted. , the granddaughter Charles had always wanted.
“But actually, historically, a really important little girl.”
Ms Nicholl added: “With the change in laws, she will retain this position – she is fourth in line to the throne and no baby boy born afterwards will take that place from her, so she is historically very important.”

If the rules had not changed, her younger brother Prince Louis would have passed her in the line of succession.
This was echoed by royal commentator Camilla Tominey who said Charlotte’s birth in 2015 “heralded the dawn of a new era for girl power”.
She added: “Obviously we’ve been used to the Queen – the ultimate exponent of girl’s power on the throne.
“But we are now faced with the prospect of three kings online, so we are not going to see another woman on the throne for many, many years.”

Charlotte is already considered a fashion influence by many and, like her mother, has enormous power in the retail industry, as the clothes she wears are regularly purchased by royal fans.
In 2018, it was even predicted that Charlotte could boost the UK economy, with a hypothetical net worth of £ 3.8 billion.
According to Reader’s Digest, this was even more important than the predictions given to Prince George, who had a hypothetical net worth of £ 2.7 billion.
Examples cited include when Charlotte turned two and Kensington Palace posted a photo of herself in a pastel yellow John Lewis cardigan.
