Princess Charlotte may be only seven years old, but her father Prince William says she already has her eyes set on a possible future career.

During a visit to England Women's team at St George's Park earlier this week, the Duke of Cambridge gave a sweet update about his and Kate Middleton's daughter, revealing that she's a 'budding' football player.

On meeting players he received three football shirts for each of his children - Prince George, eight, Prince Charlotte, seven, and Prince Louis, four - with their names printed on the back.

On seeing Princess Charlotte's he laughed and passed on a message from his only daughter.

'Charlotte wanted me to tell you that she is really good at goal,' he noted. 'She said "Please tell them that." She's a budding star for the future.'

The Duke, who turns 40 on June 21 and is second in line to the throne after his father Prince Charles, also watched the team's training session in Burton upon Trent.

He then spoke to players and coaches ahead of the UEFA Women's Euro 2022, commencing on July 6 and hosted by England.

Last December, Prince William shared Princess Charlotte's unexpected morning ritual, revealing that she loves to dance at breakfast time.

'Most mornings there's a massive fight between Charlotte and George as to what song is played in the morning,' he said on an episode of Apple Fitness+'s Time to Walk.

He added: '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.'

Prince William isn't the only royal to shares news about their child's future prospects, as his younger brother Prince Harry revealed that his now three-year-old son Archie has dreams of becoming a pilot.

This was while joined by wife Meghan Markle at an Invictus Games ceremony earlier this year, at which point Markle doted on the 'incredible' Duke, expressing her 'love and respect' for him and that she could 'not be prouder' of her husband.

As well as gushing 'Thank you my love' to Markle, Prince Harry said of Archie's pilot aspirations: 'I remind him no matter what you want to be when you grow up it is your character that matters most and nothing would make his mum and me prouder than to see him have the character of what we see before us today.'

When it comes to Prince William, who is also president of the Football Association, he has another keen football fan - his eldest child, Prince George.

Prince George attended his first football match with sister Princess Charlotte in October 2019, to watch Norwich City vs Aston Villa at Carrow Road Stadium.

He later posed in his England football T-shirt for his sixth birthday.

Later, in 2022, Prince William was seen supporting for Prince George as he played for his school football team.
