As part of Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations that are taking place across the UK this weekend, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took their two eldest children, Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 7, to Cardiff Castle in Wales to take part in jubilee festivities there.
Charlotte, her brother and her parents were greeted by fans as they made their way into the castle’s grounds to attend a concert.
But before the concert kicked off, the royals were invited to watch the band practise, and after listening to several songs by the orchestra, including Sweet Caroline, the seven-year-old appeared visibly overjoyed when the popular track ‘We Don’t Talk About Bruno’ from Disney movie Encanto came on.
Encouraged by the band – and her parents – Charlotte even tried her hand at directing the band during the concert practice. With a little assurance from her mum and dad, and with her brother looking on, the young royal stepped in for conductor John Quirk when the popular Disney track came on.
Brandishing the baton with a smile, Charlotte looked more confident with every note and even threw her head back in laughter.
The young siblings clearly enjoyed spending time with the musicians, with mum Kate even revealing during the tour of the stage that George, 8, is taking electric guitar lessons, while Charlotte, 7, has been practicing the piano.
Big brother George also got stuck in, and took a turn sliding the knobs and listening through headphones as the musicians showed him what to do. As some feedback suddenly echoed around the stage, the startled young prince jumped and giggled.
The Cambridge siblings were a surprise addition to Will and Kate’s planned visit to Cardiff Castle yesterday, all in honor of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations happening across the UK this week.
Earlier this weekend, the adorable duo was spotted waving to the crowds from the Buckingham Palace balcony alongside their little brother Louis, 4, as the royals gathered to watch the Trooping the Colour in celebration of the Queen’s birthday and her 70 years on the throne.
