Kate Middleton and Princess Charlotte have taken mother-daughter bonding to a whole new level.

Royal expert Katie Nicholl recently opened up about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's homeschooling methods while speaking with OK!, and it turns out that Charlotte is quite fond of spider hunting. (Yes, as in hunting for real spiders.)

Nicholl revealed, "Kate has been interested in how outdoor learning can benefit children. She got to meet children who had lessons outside and ask how they enjoyed it. She saw the benefit first-hand. Kate is aware of screen time and tries to limit the children being exposed to too much. When the children have a break, she takes them outside, come rain or shine."

She continued, "She wants them to get fresh air and be in nature. She loves to pick vegetables with them in the gardens. If they are learning about rivers or the sea, she and William try to incorporate that into their walks. Charlotte is a massive fan of spiders and loves looking at them and learning about them, so they go on spider hunts so that she can see them up close and then let them go."

In October, the 5-year-old royal and her siblings got to interview natural historian David Attenborough about animals, and of course, Princess Charlotte was quick to mention her love of spiders.

She told Attenborough, "I like spiders, do you like spiders too?" In response, he said that he loves them and referred to the arachnids as "wonderful things."

Here's hoping we'll get a glimpse of one of Middleton's mother-daughter spider hunts.
