Are we in the midst of a tale of two Charlottes?
While Queen Camilla was visiting the STORM Family Center—an organization that gives support to victims of domestic violence and their families—a little girl wrote her a letter, to deliver to Princess Charlotte.
The letter, written by Charlotte-Rose Hickson, requested a playdate between the girl and the young princess, opening, “’Princess Charlotte, My name is Charlotte-Rose and I’m eight.’” and closing with, “’Here’s my phone number, hopefully you will, love Charlie-Rose.'”
Queen Camilla graciously accepted the letter and promised to pass it along to her granddaughter. Princess Charlotte is currently seven years old.
Charlotte-Rose is eagerly awaiting a response, telling Hello Magazine, “She said she would give my note to Charlotte, I’m hoping she’ll agree, you never know…I think I’ll go to her house.”
Charlotte-Rose’s father, Wayne, said that his daughter was anxious to speak with the monarch, but he encouraged her to try. “She asked me about it a few weeks ago and I said what did she have to lose? She was almost too scared to do it this morning but then got the courage to do it. She was quite nervous though. Camilla told her that she liked her dress and she would pass the note on for her.”
The Queen gave a brief speech at the event, thanking the charity for the immensely important work their organization does. Camilla is notably involved in charities that benefit domestic abuse victims.
In her speech, Queen Camilla said, “I’d like to say a huge thank you, to you, for all you’re doing for domestic abuse and women being abused. I’ve been to a lot of centers all the way around the country, but I seldom come to ones like this where there’s so much going on to help the community.”
