Princess Charlotte stole the spotlight after mastering the perfect curtsy for Queen Elizabeth as she exited the Christmas Day church service in Sandringham.

Prince William and Kate Middleton should consider themselves proud parents after Prince George and Princess Charlotte's Christmas debut at the Sandringham Christmas church service.

The sibling's debut at the St Mary Magdalene Church was the first time they joined the parents for the Christmas tradition and meeting members of the public.


Before the service, the royal family walked hand-in-hand as they were greeted by crowds. Prince Charles led the way across the tarred road to church.

William held onto George's hand as they welcomed gifts from people who waited outside the church. Charlotte followed Kate closely as they smiled and chatted with members of the public.


PEOPLE reports, William and Kate, are attempting to prepare their children for their future royal duties by encouraging them the participate in royal engagements.

Taking a cue from her mother, Charlotte showed off her royal etiquette when she perfected a royal curtsy for the Queen as she left the church service and entered her vehicle. 


As the family gathered outside the church to watch the Queen drive off in her vintage Rolls Royce, Kate, who was standing in the front row, gave a cheerful curtsy as the car drove off.

The four-year-old was pictured holding her mother's hand as lifted up the side of her green A-line coat by Amaia, and also dipped into a quick curtsy.

According to 

Sky News

, Karen Anvil, who gifted Charlotte a doll described her encounter saying: 

"She came over with her mum, and she took the doll, she liked the doll. The manners are outstanding. But she's cheeky - people say she looked scared, but when you're a mum you know when your child is trying to keep a straight face, and she is cheeky."

While taking part in many of the royal family's Christmas traditions, William and Kate have also tried to give their children a normal life.

This year, after being invited by their George and Charlotte's school friends from Thomas Battersea, they took part in a new tradition of meeting Santa Claus at a local club.
