Princess Charlotte's Adorable Faces Melt Hearts at Commonwealth Games

Princess Charlotte's first visit to the Commonwealth Games saw her capture hearts with a series of adorable facial expressions.

The young royal joined her parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, in the stands for the men's 1500m freestyle, at the Sandwell Aquatics Centre, on day five of the Commonwealth Games Tuesday.

William, Kate and Charlotte looked gripped by the heats as they watched the action alongside Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex.

The Olympic-style tournament gave Charlotte a chance to get in on the royal summer of live sport after Prince George had a busy year in the stands for the soccer, rugby and tennis.

At his most recent outing, Kate described his attendance at the men's singles final of Wimbledon as "George's treat."

However, it was Charlotte who got to enjoy a trip out in the second week of Britain's school holidays.

A Kensington Palace statement read: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Charlotte have arrived at the Commonwealth Games. They have joined The Earl and Countess of Wessex and their family at the Sandwell Aquatics Centre where they are watching the swimming heats."

It is not the first time the Cambridge children have caught attention with their funny facial expressions after Louis took the limelight at the Platinum Jubilee.

George's amusing faces were also on full display at Wimbledon as he watched Novak Djokovic beat Nick Kyrgios.

Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty Magazine, wrote on Twitter: "Today it's Princess Charlotte's turn for an outing with mum and dad. #CommonwealthGames2022."

Princess Charlotte also recorded a rare public message with her father William that was posted on his official Twitter account.

The pair wished England's women's soccer team good luck ahead of the UEFA Women's European Championship final that they won on Sunday.

The prince said: "We both want to wish the Lionesses the best of luck for tonight. You've done amazingly well in the competition and we're rooting for you all the way."

Charlotte added: "Good luck and hope you win, bye!"

After the match, William congratulated England's Lionesses with a further post, which read: "Sensational. An incredible win @lionesses and the whole nation couldn't be prouder of you all. Wonderful to see history in the making tonight at Wembley, congratulations! W"

Queen Elizabeth II added to the chorus of approval in a statement released through Buckingham Palace.

She said: "My warmest congratulations, and those of my family, go to you all on winning the European Women's Football Championships. It is a significant achievement for the entire team, including your support staff.

"The Championships and your performance in them have rightly won praise. However, your success goes far beyond the trophy you have so deservedly earned.

"You have all set an example that will be an inspiration for girls and women today, and for future generations. It is my hope that you will be as proud of the impact you have had on your sport as you are of the result today."
