The seven-year-old’s sillies came out as she “conducted” a band playing “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” and baked cupcakes with her family for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Princess Charlotte has had a very busy few days celebrating her “gan-gan,” the Queen. After taking her first Trooping the Colour carriage ride on Friday and watching the flypast on the Buckingham Palace balcony (where her little bro Prince Louis stole the show), the seven-year-old and her big brother, Prince George, attended a bunch of events with their parents—and Charlotte was giggling all along the way.
After a surprise walkabout in Cardiff on Saturday, the older Cambridge siblings got to see a band’s concert practice at Cardiff Castle—and Princess Charlotte tried her hand at conducting. With a little encouragement from dad, she waved a baton while the band played “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” and the princess burst into a fit of giggles, showing off her partially toothless grin.
Standing behind Charlotte and laughing when the Encanto tune came on, it’s clear that, like all of us, Kate is very familiar with this song. According to People, she later shared that her kids are really into music and Prince George takes electric guitar lessons while Charlotte plays piano (wonder if she’s mastered “Bruno” yet).
That night, at the Platinum Party at Buckingham Palace, Charlotte sat with her brother George in the audience of 22,000 people watching stars like Alicia Keys, Elton John and Diana Ross performed—but we’d bet their fave part was a skit the Queen did with Paddington Bear. The kiddies had the cutest reactions to the show, waving their flags and laughing with their parents.
As if all that weren’t enough, William and Kate shared the sweetest montage video of the kids baking cupcakes for a Platinum Jubilee street party and the pics are just too sweet—especially one at the end of Charlotte BEAMING at her mom.
The Cambridge kids have definitely earned some low-key iPad time (check out some of their favourite shows!) before heading back to school on Monday.
