Earlier this week, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took their daughter to the 2022 Commonwealth Games swim meet in Birmingham, England.
A couple of days ago, Kate Middleton and Prince William took their 7-year-old daughter to the 2022 Commonwealth Games pool meet with relatives Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and their children.
In addition to smiling and laughing, Princess Charlotte also received expert guidance on different events from mom Kate as she enjoyed the spectators’ company. The little girl even gave her dad a thumbs up at one point.
Since Charlotte is typically accompanied by her older brother Prince George and younger brother Prince Louis, it will be Charlotte’s first royal event alone with her parents. In recent months, Prince George has attended a couple of solo events with his parents.
Aside from the swim meet, Charlotte also joined her dad to wish England’s women’s soccer team good luck ahead of their Women’s Euro 2022 final win against Germany on Sunday.
On Thursday, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, arrived in the prince’s vintage Aston Martin to inaugurate the Commonwealth Games, which Edward and Sophie have attended throughout the past week.
The opening ceremony was capped by a special message from Charles’ mother, Queen Elizabeth, which had been relayed across the Commonwealth over the last nine months in preparation for the games.
Queen Elizabeth wrote, “Over the years, the coming together of so many for the ‘Friendly Games’ has created memorable shared experiences, established long-standing relationships, and even created some friendly rivalries!”
She continued, “But above all, they remind us of our connection with one another, wherever we may be in the world, as part of the Commonwealth family of nations.”
