KATE Middleton showed off the royal ropes to sweet Princess Charlotte during a Platinum Jubilee visit to Wales today.
The Duchess of Cambridge held her daughter’s hand as she met entertainers who were putting on a show to mark the Queen’s 70th reign.
The couple accompanied Prince William and eight-year-old George, who also walked hand in hand, for the royal outing to Cardiff Castle.
Charlotte, wearing an elegant navy blue frock coat and blue Mary Jane shoes with white ankle socks, smiled as her mother waved to the well-wishers.
At one point, the seven-year-old appeared to try to curtsy as she stepped out of the car with her family on arrival this morning.
The Duchess wore a long red coat – matching the color of the red dragon on the Welsh flag.
George, who is expected to one day receive the title of Prince of Wales, joined his family as they chatted to a crowd of royal fans.
William put his arm around his eldest son as he too demonstrated how official dating is conducted.
Kate, Wills, George and Charlotte will watch rehearsals and meet some of the acts taking part in the celebrations, including Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler, on the young siblings’ first official visit to Wales.
Bonnie was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honors last week for her services to music.
The royals will also meet weatherman Owain Wyn Evans, best known for his role on nightly news programs North West Tonight and The One Show.
The Cambridges and their children will then be introduced to a range of West End artists, the Rubicon Dance Company and the Wales Youth Choir for Good.
Prince Louis – who stole the show when he appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with his family and the Queen on Thursday after the Trooping the Color ceremony – missed the visit.
The adorable king jumped for joy after being wowed by the Red Arrows.
Louis, four, grinned and chatted to his great-grandmother the Queen as they watched the sensational show from the balcony.
Just hours earlier, Charlotte was snapped playfully reassuring her little brother as he enthusiastically waved at a huge crowd watching Trooping the Colour.
The royal boy laid her hand over her younger brother during the carriage procession.
Meanwhile, Kate and Wills joined other members of the Chancellery at St Paul’s Cathedral yesterday for a special thanksgiving service.
While the Queen, 96, was not in attendance herself for mobility reasons, Charles and Camilla, Beatrice and Eugenie, and Zara and Mike Tindall were in force.
Kate and William arrived to loud cheers from the public waiting outside.
But Harry and Meghan were seated in the second row on the right, away from the Cambridges, who were seated up front on the left.
Palace staff are reported to have been working behind the scenes for months to perfectly choreograph the anniversary service so Harry and William would not come face to face.
The brothers sat on different sides of St. Paul’s and arrived with their wives at different times.
The couples did not make eye contact or acknowledge each other.
