Despite her parents' best efforts to give her a normal childhood, one day Princess Charlotte will have to take on her royal role full time.

After finishing her studies it's likely that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's daughter will dedicate her life to charity work and royal duties, just like the rest of her family.

At fourth in line to the throne, shes a very senior member of the Firm and has HRH status, but she could have another impressive title when she's older.

When Prince William takes the throne he could make Charlotte Princess Royal, a historical title given the the Monarch's oldest daughter.

The future Princess Royal?

Charlotte's great-aunt Princess Anne, the Queen and Philip's daughter, currently holds the title.

However only one person can hold the title at one time, and it lasts a lifetime, which means Charlotte wouldn't even be considered for it until Anne has passed away.

But even then, it's not an automatic appointment.

When the Queen took the throne the position was vacant, but she decided against handing it over straight away.

In fact, Anne had to wait more than 20 years before her mum made her Princess Royal.

She may only be five, but Charlotte has already made history when it comes to her royal role.

When her little brother Prince Louis was born in April 2018 she became the first female royal to retain her claim to the throne and not be bumped down the line by the arrival of a new male.

The change was thanks to the Succession to the Crown Act 2013.

It states: "In determining the succession to the Crown, the gender of a person born after 28 October 2011 does not give that person, or that person’s descendants, precedence over any other person (whenever born)."

If this change hadn't been introduced Princess Charlotte, who is currently fourth in line to the throne, would have been bumped down to fifth if Kate had a boy. Louis would have taken her spot.

But instead, Louis took the fifth position, bumping his uncle Prince Harry down to sixth.
