Prince George and Princess Charlotte give us a cheeky wave at Grandma’s 90th birthday

The mini monarchs stole the show with their regal behaviour at this year's Trooping The Colour...


Unless you’ve been living under a rock lately, you’ll know that Queen Elizabeth II has been celebrating her 90th birthday over the past few weeks.


And what better way to mark the occasion than a family get-together at Buckingham Palace on her official birthday, Saturday 11th June?

The Queen, husband Prince Philip (who recently celebrated his 95th birthday) and her grandchildren all gathered on the balcony of the palace to watch the Royal Air Force flypast, during the annual Trooping The Colour festivities.

The parade doubled as 13-month-old Princess Charlotte’s first public ‘outing’. The royal tot sat in mum Duchess Kate’s arms for the duration, looking lovely in a pink gown and matching booties.

She even gave the crowd her ‘first public wave’…


Meanwhile, Princess Charlotte’s older brother, 2-year-old Prince George, appeared to get a lesson or two on how to be a royal from dad.

Not only was the little Prince following in his father’s fashion footsteps – wearing an outfit Prince William wore himself as a young boy – we also saw the Prince teaching his young son to give the crowds a wave, in a video shared by the official Kensington Royal Instagram page.

And it really seemed like the future King of England had this whole addressing-the-public thing down… he was smiling, and saluting… until he got a little bit restless and tried to climb over the barriers!

Even at the Queen’s (or should we say Grandma’s ?) 90th, toddlers will still be toddlers eh? ?
