Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge and his wife Kate Middleton revealed that their daughter Charlotte loves Shakira’s Waka Waka.

Princess Charlotte has excellent musical taste, according to Prince William, who said that the toddler can’t stop’moving [her] hips’ to Shakira’s infectious song Waka Waka.
In an audio walking tour created for Apple, the Duke of Cambridge discussed his family’s love of music.
He detailed his family’s adorable morning ritual, which involves Charlotte, six, and her elder brother Prince George, eight, ‘fighting’ over the music selection as Prince Louis, three, follows them about the kitchen.
‘One of the songs that the kids are adoring right now is Shakira’s Waka Waka,’ William, 39, added. There are a lot of hip motions and a lot of dressing up going on.
‘Charlotte, in particular, is circling the kitchen in her skirts and dancing attire. Louis follows her about attempting to do the same thing, and she becomes insane.’
The Duke said he was “amazed” that his three children had inherited his family’s love of music, adding that “most mornings there’s a tremendous dispute between Charlotte and George as to what song is played in the morning.”

To maintain order in the Cambridge family, the Duke stated he rotates who gets to choose the music between his two oldest children.
‘There’s nothing better than, on a Monday morning, when you’re a little bleary-eyed after the weekend and trying to get yourself back into the grind of the week, listening to AC/DC – Thunderstruck,’ he added, introducing his last music choice for the episode.
‘It completely wakes you up, puts you in the greatest mood imaginable for the rest of the week, and makes you feel like you can take on anything.’
While driving him and Prince Harry to school, William recalls his late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, belting out Tina Turner classics at the ‘top of her lungs.’
‘Because sat in the backseat singing away, it seemed like a true family moment,’ he added. My mother would be singing at the top of her lungs while driving, and we’d even have the cop in the vehicle, who would sometimes join in.

‘When they left you off at school, you’d be singing and listening to music all the way up to the gates, and that’s when it hit you that you were really going back to school.’
‘Because you’re immersed in music before that, and you want to replay it simply to keep that family moment continuing.’ And now that I’m listening to it, it transports me back to those car journeys and brings back many memories of my mum,’ he said.
On Monday, Apple will broadcast three special audio airings of the Time To Walk episode starring William for free on Apple Music 1, the company’s worldwide radio station.
