Princess Charlotte loves eating olives and making cheese sauce from scratch

She has a sophisticated palette for a three-year-old…

Princess Charlotte absolutely loves eating olives and making homemade cheese sauce with her brother Prince George, according to proud mum Kate.

Princess Charlotte may only be three-years-old, but we are sure that as part of the royal family she’s already tasted some of the finest foods the world has to offer.

We already knew that Princess Charlotte and Prince George loved to make their own pizzas and were huge fans of Italian cuisine.

But now it’s been revealed that Charlotte has a new favourite food to add to her list - olives!

Olives can instantly divide people into the love them or hate them camp and it appears Princess Charlotte is firmly for the salty little snacks.

Kate revealed that "Charlotte loves olives" while visiting the children of Lavender Primary School and also said she likes to get Charlotte and George cooking from scratch.

Matthew Kleiner-Mann, chief executive of the Ivy Learning Trust, explained: ‘She [Kate] was telling us how much her children love cooking and how they cook for her. They made cheesy pasta the other day.

Macaroni cheese

We're sure Princess Charlotte and Prince George would approve of our delicious macaroni cheese recipe... 

‘One stirs the flour, one puts the milk and butter in, and they make salads and stuff. Food is important to her and she understands the links between mental health and physical exercise.’

Who do you think is in charge of which part? We wonder if Kate and William have started the weaning process with little Louis yet…

If your feeling inspired to cook with the kids we’ve got lots of recipes you might like to try.

Making your own homemade sauces is not only healthier, because you control exactly what’s going into it, it’s often cheaper too as you can make lots and freeze some for later.
