Wearing a striped dress and her hair in pigtails, she was seen at one point giving the thumbs up to her father.

Little Charlotte appears just as sporty as her parents.

Only days earlier she appeared in a video message to England’s women’s soccer team, the Lionesses, before their win against Germany in the Euro 2022 final.

“Good luck, I hope you win, bye!” she said in the message.

Charlotte’s animated display in Birmingham was reminiscent of her younger brother Prince Louis’ famous appearance at the Platinum Party at the Palace for the Queen’s platinum jubilee in June.

The four-year-old created international headlines by pulling faces, sticking out his tongue through the lengthy performance, during which he sat alongside his cousins ​​and grandparents Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla.
