Kate Middleton and Princess Charlotte have enjoyed a special day out and the pictures of their family trip are utterly adorable.
- The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have taken their only daughter to Birmingham to watch the Commonwealth Games 2022.
- Appearing in a nautical-striped dress, Charlotte mirrored her mother’s delight and awe in wonderful snaps from the day.
- This royal news comes as Prince Charles' shocking confession that left Diana devastated on their wedding day was revealed.
Just like many other members of The Firm, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are keen sports fans, often putting their own skills to the test at high-profile engagements. From Kate straying from an average work day on the rugby pitch after taking over as Patron of the Rugby Football League and Rugby Football Union to Prince William’s polo match victory just a few weeks ago, it’s clear the couple aren’t afraid to get stuck in.
And they’re just as eager to support others and cheer on from the stands like when Kate and William were in “complete unison” at Wimbledon, where they were accompanied by their eldest child, Prince George. Now it’s his sister, who is fourth in the royal line of succession, who’s been treated to a day out.
Prince William, Kate Middleton and Princess Charlotte have enjoyed a special day in Birmingham for the Commonwealth Games - and the pictures are incredibly sweet.
Taking to Twitter on August 2nd, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge revealed that they were en route to Birmingham and were looking forward to an “exciting day of sport”. They aren’t the first royals to attend the Commonwealth Games 2022 so far, with the Queen’s ‘favourite grandchild’ channelling her during a visit with the Earl and Countess of Wessex on August 1st.
The Wessexes returned the next day and were seated just behind William, Kate and Charlotte at the Sandwell Aquatics Centre. Here the family watched the morning session and Kate and Charlotte in particular couldn’t have looked cuter, with the Queen’s great-grandchild appearing every inch her proud mum’s mini-me.
Charlotte and Kate mirrored each other’s fascinated, serious looks during the swims, with their faces both lit up with delight as they clapped the athletes. And it seems that Charlotte has taken a leaf out of her mother’s fashion book as she wore an appropriately nautical-striped dress just days after Kate’s nautical outfit in Plymouth wowed fans.
This isn’t the first time this similarity between outfits has been glimpsed, with many of Charlotte’s matching mum-and-daughter outfits attracting attention over the years. Mother and daughter certainly seemed to be having some serious fun as they took in all the competitive spirit and brilliant performances from the swimmers, with William looking equally as enthralled by the athletes’ talent.
Their trip comes just a few days after a new video of Princess Charlotte talking saw her wish England's Lionesses good luck in the football ahead of their Euros victory. Her love of sports came shining through in her kind message and now she’s got to experience the atmosphere of international competitions herself, albeit from the stands at the Commonwealth Games.
It’s not known whether this will be Charlotte’s only special day out with Kate and William this games but with several more days to go, who knows if we could see her mirroring her proud mum again!
