Princess Charlotte gained a lot of fans for during her public appearance with her innocence, confidence, and cheerfulness.


3-year-old Princess Charlotte was captured on video imitating her great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II's signature waving at the crowd during Saturday's 'Trooping The Colour' ceremony.

She was seen with her family on the balcony after the traditional fly past. Charlotte seemed to enjoy the festive environment and was clapping with excitement. As she was clapping she noticed her great-grandmother to her right.

The Queen acknowledged the crowd by waving at them. Charlotte emulated her and waved at the crowd in her own style. Charlotte's innocent impulse forced Middleton to giggle as she discussed it with Prince William.

The Queen looked at Charlotte and shared a knowing smile with Middleton.


The Queen is known to be very fond of her great-grandchildren. Middleton had mentioned the relationship between The Queen and George and Charlotte while speaking on the ITV Documentary Our Queen at Ninety.

"She always leaves a little gift or something in their room when we go and stay, and that just shows her love for the family."

Elizabeth was also spotted taking a helicopter from Windsor to London to visit her newest great-grandchild, Prince Louis, at Kensington Palace.

In January 2018, Queen Elizabeth disclosed to one of her visitors in her Sandringham estate in Norfolk that Princess Charlotte was the one to 'look after' 4-year-old Prince George.

The incident took place when Elizabeth asked 10-year-old school girl Emily Clay, who had won a bible signed by the Queen, if she looked after her 6-year-old sister. Clay's mother Emily responded that it was the other way round.

Elizabeth quickly responded that it was the same with George and Charlotte. Read more about the royal family on our Twitter account @amomama_usa.
