‘Charming’ Princess Charlotte steals the show at Commonwealth Games

Princess Charlotte has been described as a “charming” young girl after her first family engagement with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The seven-year-old princess joined her proud parents in Birmingham – host city of the Commonwealth Games – to learn about a program preparing the next generation of sportspeople for future events.

Charlotte seemed curious about her surroundings and the people around her at the University of Birmingham, and a little apprehensive at times, but received a reassuring arm around her shoulder or a word in her ear from William, and held her Kate’s hand at other times.

The young princess has revealed gymnastics is her favorite sport and took part in a nutrition workshop to help her parents put pictures of foods like nuts, bread and grapes into the right groups , whether it’s protein, carbohydrates, antioxidants or healthy fats.

At one point Charlotte was asked to update an England team medal table and added a bronze medal, won in the men’s team table tennis event, and a silver medal men’s lawn bowling pairs.

She was also taken by William and Kate to events at the Commonwealth Games and was pictured smiling during the swim sets and then joined her parents to watch a hockey game.
