Four members of the Cambridge clan traveled to Wales for the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations, but it was Charlotte who got all the attention.
Princess Charlotte burst out laughing on Saturday as she led a group on her first royal visit.
The Duchess of Cambridge shook hands with her daughter as she met performers putting on a show to mark 70 years of the Queen’s reign.
They were joined by Prince William and George, eight, who also walked hand-in-hand, for the royal outing to Cardiff Castle in the capital of Wales.

Charlotte, dressed in a smart navy frock coat and blue Mary Jane shoes with white ankle socks, smiled as her mother waved to well-wishers.
At one point, the seven-year-old appeared to try to curtsy as she got out of the car with her family as she arrived this morning.
She was then pictured laughing as she led musicians We’re not talking about Bruno from the hit Disney movie Encanto at the castle.
Kate and Wills also tried to lead the orchestra as they exploded My dear Caroline.
The Duchess was dressed in a long red coat – matching the color of the red dragon on the Welsh flag.
George, who is expected to be given the title of Prince of Wales one day, joined his family as they chatted with crowds of royal fans.
William placed his arm around his eldest son as he too showed how official engagements go.
Touchingly, George’s visit reflects his father’s first official visit to Wales at the same age when he joined Princess Diana and Charles on a trip to Cardiff in 1991.
He and Charlotte looked a little uncertain as they encountered royal goat Shenkin IV on their trip today with their parents.
But little brother Prince Louis – who stole the show when he appeared on the balcony at Buckingham Palace with his family and the Queen after Trooping the Color on Thursday – missed the visit.
The adorable royal was seen jumping for joy after being wowed by the Red Arrows before chatting with his great-grandmother Her Majesty.
Hours earlier, Charlotte had been pictured playfully soothing her baby brother as he excitedly waved to huge crowds watching Trooping the Colour.
The young royal placed her hand on her younger brother during the carriage procession.
Today Kate, Wills, George and Charlotte attended rehearsals and met some of the cast taking part in the celebrations, including Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler, in the young siblings’ first official visit to Wales.
Bonnie received an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honors last week for her services to music.
Other members of the royal family are visiting elsewhere in the UK, while Prince Harry and Meghan Markle celebrate their daughter’s first birthday behind closed doors in Windsor.
The Sussexes, who introduced Lilibet to the Queen for the first time this weekend, are supposed to mark the special day privately.
Meanwhile, Kate and Wills joined other cabinet members at St Paul’s Cathedral yesterday for a special service of thanksgiving.
While the Queen, 96, herself did not attend due to mobility issuesCharles and Camilla, Beatrice and Eugenie and Zara and Mike Tindall were out in force.
Kate and William arrived to cheers from members of the public waiting outside.
But Harry and Meghan were seated second row on the right, away from the Cambridges who were front left.
It has been reported that Palace aides worked behind the scenes for months to perfectly choreograph the Jubilee service so that Harry and William did not come face to face.
The brothers sat on separate sides of St Paul and arrived with their wives at different times.
The couples did not make eye contact or recognize each other.
