Another Princess Charlotte Moment From The Queen's Jubilee Is Getting Attention

Princess Charlotte, the 7-year-old daughter of Prince William and Kate Middleton, is fourth in line for the throne. As such, she's pretty much been famous since she was born. Her first public appearance on the famous Buckingham Palace balcony was in her mother's arms shortly after her first birthday to watch the Trooping the Colour parade, via Vanity Fair. But this year, she got to be a part of the parade.

Charlotte and her siblings were front and center at several events for the queen's Platinum Jubilee. It started when she and her brothers — 8-year-old Prince George and 4-year-old Prince Louis — had their first ride in a royal carriage for the Trooping the Colour, via Cosmopolitan. The three all sat on one side of the carriage with Louis in the middle, and on the other side were their mother and Camilla Parker-Bowles. They waved at the crowds lining the streets, but at one point, Charlotte seemed to think her little brother's waving was just too much and she reached out to lower his waving hand to his lap. Louis wasn't alone in getting a Charlotte check; she also had a nudge for her big brother at their final Jubilee appearance.

Princess Charlotte made sure Prince George stood up straight

Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Camilla Parker-Bowles, Prince William, Kate Middleton, and the three Cambridge kids were back on the Buckingham Palace balcony for the wrap up of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. While the national anthem played, Princess Charlotte noticed that her big brother Prince George was resting his hand on the balcony. In the way only a middle child could, she gave him a nudge, to which he dropped his hand back down to his side and straightened up, per People. She definitely seems to be the sibling that keeps her brothers in line.

That wasn't the only time the older Cambridge siblings stole the show at the Platinum Jubilee. The two shared another sweet moment when the anthem ended and a smoke cannon went off. The sudden sound seemed to surprise Charlotte. George looked at his sister and, according to Hello! Magazine, said "That made you jump." She agreed and was seen saying, "That made me jump!"

Also on Sunday Charlotte gave some sisterly attention to her little brother. While Twitter may have deemed Louis a fan favorite, Charlotte was not as amused by her sibling's antics during the Platinum Pageant. When Louis put his fist in his mouth, Charlotte moved his hand and gave him a verbal warning, per Page Six. However, Louis ignored his sister's commentary; it took the combined efforts or his mother and grandfather to keep him calm during the lengthy event (via the Daily Mail).

The princess has likely been learning the rules of etiquette since she was 2

While the three Cambridge children may display typical childlike behavior, such as Prince Louis' array of humorous faces, per USA Today, unlike most kids their age, they are also receiving instruction for their royal roles. Myka Meier, an expert in royal etiquette told Cosmopolitan, "It would probably begin with simple training like how to shake hands and curtsy around the age of two." According to Meier, Kate Middleton would likely be the person to give her children their earliest instruction, which could consist of "day-to-day observation and gentle lessons right before an event or when meeting an important guest."

Back in 2019, Princess Charlotte and Prince George impressed observers at a Christmas service. The then-four-year-old Charlotte handled the event with aplomb. One impressed royal fan told the Express, "Her manners were outstanding — but she's cheeky, she wasn't at all scared."

Charlotte has also demonstrated that she's learned a lot by watching her other royal family members in action, especially her great-grandmother. During the final balcony appearance of the four-day Platinum Jubilee events, Charlotte mirrored the queen's iconic greeting style, per E! News. The young princess emulated the monarch as the two waved simultaneously at the cheering audience.

Princess Charlotte has also learned some things on the fly

Part of the young Cambridges' royal education also includes on-the-job training. During Saturday's Jubilee festivities, Prince George and Princess Charlotte accompanied Prince William and Kate to Wales. This time it was Kate Middleton's turn to offer Charlotte a gentle correction during the meet and greet. "Kate was seen to nudge Charlotte to step forward to shake hands after she jumped in too quickly at first, moving up before her brother and father had done their greetings," body language expert Judi James told the Daily Mail.

Previously, James told the Express how much Charlotte's demeanor resembled her late grandmother, Princess Diana. "Like Diana she gives the initial impression of shyness but beneath that appears to be an outgoing, fun personality." Like Prince Louis, Charlotte has been known to exhibit some sassy antics, such as when she stuck her tongue out during a 2019 sporting event, per My London.
