Princess Charlotte playfully tries to lead an orchestra in Wales
Princess Charlotte’s fans were delighted with her playful attempt at conducting an orchestra during a visit to Cardiff Castle in Wales with her parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and her older brother, Prince George .
The seven-year-old, who is the second child of Prince William and Kate Middleton, joined her family on her first official visit to Wales for a trip in honor of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The family arrived at Cardiff Castle on Saturday afternoon to meet the artists and crew involved in the special Platinum Jubilee celebration concert taking place on the castle grounds today.
William and Kate were the first to try their hand at conducting with a baton.
In one video, Kate was seen trying to slow down the tempo of the orchestra’s rendition of ‘Sweet Caroline’ during her round, only to have her and William laugh as the song continued to its beat usual.
After being given the baton, the video shows Charlotte trying to return it to her father before he encourages her to try leading.
She smiled and shook her head at first, but then started waving her hands and the baton like she had just seen her parents do.
She looked up at her older brother and they laughed together as she continued to lead the orchestra.
Fans of the young princess called the video “sweet”, with some saying it brightened their day.
“I love it when Princess Charlotte started leading the orchestra and she and Prince George laugh, the whole family is so adorable,” one person wrote on Twitter.
Another one said: “You have to give it to William, he put himself in the spirit of a conductor! Charlotte was so nice and Kate did a great job too! George is just like, my parents are so embarrassing hahahaha… typical kid.
However, noting the absence of the Cambridges’ youngest son, Prince Louis, a third person said: “They are adorable but I bet if they had brought Louis he would have fucked him.”
Louis was last seen on the balcony of Buckingham Palace on Thursday for the Queen’s birthday parade, Trooping the Colour.
The event marked the start of four days of festivities for the monarch’s Platinum Jubilee, to celebrate her 70e year on the throne.
Social media users said Louis ‘stole the show’ during the balcony appearance, as he made funny faces during the RAF flypast and shared a sweet interaction with his great-grandmother , the Queen.
