UNITED KINGDOM – The Butterfly Princess. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Kate and William, shared on social media on August 7 a touching photo of their daughter, Princess Charlotte.
We can see the sister of Prince George and Prince Louis observing in the palm of her hands a delicate butterfly, a Vulcan or “Red Admiral” in English. And this cliché is not trivial.
This photo is a way for the Cambridges to highlight an association that fights for the preservation of butterflies and nature. This is the Butterfly Conservation, a UK charity dedicated to the conservation of butterflies, moths and the environment.
As the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge explain on Twitter, this association “encourages all people to consider these incredible creatures because not only are they beautiful creatures to be around, but they are also extremely important. Butterflies are essential elements of the ecosystem as pollinators and components of the food chain ”.
Butterfly Conservation are encouraging us all to count these incredible creatures because not only are they beautiful creatures to be around but they are also extremely important.
Hopefully you can beat last year’s total @savebutterflies!https://t.co/BeGgwsTgzT

The shared photos also show another species, the Peacock. This isn’t the first time Princess Charlotte has shown an interest in insects. In October 2020, during a video where she improvised a journalist with her brothers with the naturalist and scientist David Attenborough, the princess had revealed to love spiders.
