Princess Charlotte tickled by royal pet hamster Marvin


A hamster called Marvin has become a member of the Royal Household.

The Duchess of Cambridge was officially opening the new Magic Garden at Hampton Court Palace when she divulged the previously unknown information about the pet to a schoolgirl.

Kate was talking to some children when she made the revelation to Darcey from St John the Baptist School in Hampton Wick.

The nine-year-old said of her conversation with the royal visitor: "She said she has a hamster, and Charlotte really likes it because the whiskers always tickle her face."
