A sweet unguarded moment
between Princess Charlotte and the Duchess of Cornwall during
the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee has left royal fans delighted.
In a chance photo, the
seven-year-old could be seen sneaking a peek into the royal’s handbag during
Trooping the Colour this week.
It occurred as Charlotte was
joined by siblings Prince George, eight, and Prince Louis, four, along with
the Duchess of Cambridge, and the Duchess of Cornwall for the historic
parade down the Mall.
Princess Charlotte, in a
cornflower blue dress, could be seen leaning across the carriage to rifle
through Camilla’s handbag.
She previously went viral
after her tussle with Mia Tindall by the window at the Horse Guards Parade was
caught on camera, and her attempt to calm Prince Louis’ enthusiastic waving.
Sharing the snaps online,
royal fan Kayla Adams wrote: ‘Princess Charlotte snooping in Camilla’s bag
yesterday is everything!’
Another fan added: “I
Others wondered whether the
Duchess of Cornwall had tucked sweets into her bag to keep the children
well-behaved, with one writing: “I wonder if Camilla is the type of
grandma that would smuggle sweets in her handbag for the kids to “secretly”
give them (and Kate very obviously ignoring it).”
Another joked: “Clearly
looking for the Werther’s originals,” while another said: “My
Grandmother’s handbag always held something I needed when I was younger –
money, sweets, gum, pen and paper, etc. Fun to see that some things are the
same for all of us!”
