Princess Charlotte pulls funny faces as she joins William and Kate at Commonwealth Games

Princess Charlotte threw her hands into the air as she cheered on Commonwealth Games gymnasts with William and Kate today - after joining her parents at the swimming and hockey earlier this afternoon. 

The Duchess of Cambridge, 40, was in high spirits as she arrived at the tournament alongside her husband the Duke, and their seven-year-old daughter, where they took their seats in Sandwell Aquatics Centre to watch the swimming heats, watched the

The mother-of-three appeared trendy in her £1,945 white Alexander McQueen trouser suit for the event, which she first wore during the Caribbean tour earlier this year.

Meanwhile Princess Charlotte, who was wearing a £39 Rachel Riley dress, appeared delighted to be attended the contest, gesturing wildly to her parents as they sat in the stands.

Although Charlotte appeared thrilled by the action, she looked somewhat less impressed by a performance from the Commonwealth Games 2022 mascot, Perry the bull, who put on a dance for her.

Watching Perry punch the air enthusiastically, little Charlotte scrunched up her face and looked perplexed.

However, her apparent lack of enthusiasm didn’t stop the princess from picking up a teddy bear of Perry on her way home after watching the hockey.

Today’s occasion marked the first time the little Princess has joined her parents for a solo outing without one of her brothers, Prince George, eight, and Prince Louis, four.

In a cheeky display, the seven-year-old could be seen clapping along enthusiastically, sticking out her tongue and gasping at moments of action – while her mother tenderly tucked locks of her hair behind her ear which had fallen from her neat plaits.

She went on to watch a hockey match outside with her parents, before she joined them inside the Arena Birmingham where she appeared delighted to be watching the gymnastics.

The little royal is proving to be quite the sporting fan – days ago, she joined her father for a video message in sending her best wishes to the Lionesses ahead of the Euro 2022 final.
