Kate Middleton and Prince William have been seen giving tender but subtle gestures of reassurance to Princess Charlotte in public.

The trio, who have been attending the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham 2022, have been meeting both athletics and members of the public during their outings. 

But following a recent visit, as Kate, William and Princess Charlotte were chatting to attendees, the heartwarming display of affection was shown by the couple.

Princess Charlotte, seven, was asked, "Hi Charlotte, how are you? What's your favourite sport?" And before Charlotte gave her answer, dad William can be seen patting the youngster on her head."

The encouragement, prompted Charlotte to answer, "Umm...Gymnastics." 

Prince William goes on to reveal that there's a "lot of cartwheels around the house" to which Kate added, "Yeah, Charlotte spends most of her time upside down, either handstands or cartwheels."

And as Kate asked, "You liked the swimming didn't you?" she sweetly places her hand as if to stroke her daughters head.

Prompting Charlotte to give an enthusiastic nod, as Kate adds, "You wanted to see the breaststroke didn't you?"
