Now we know where Louis gets it from! Princess Charlotte, 7, stole the show with her VERY animated expressions at the Commonwealth Games - in echoes of her brother's Jubilee performance

  • Princess Charlotte, 7, put on an animated display at the Commonwealth Games
  • She pulled funny faces as she watched the swimming, hockey and gymnastics
  • Echoed Prince Louis' scene-stealing performance at the Platinum Jubilee 

Prince Louis stole the show at the Platinum Jubilee with his hilarious facial expressions. But yesterday it became clear where the four-year-old royal got his flair for dramatics. 

Princess Charlotte, seven, put on a scene-stealing display of emotions as she joined her parents Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. 

The seven-year-old royal winced, cheered and beamed as she watched competitors take part in the swimming, hockey and gymnastics. 

The cheeky schoolgirl, who was on her first solo appearance without her brothers, made her parents' laugh with her enthusiasm - at one point giving doting father William a thumbs-up. 

As the day wore on, Charlotte grew tired and began to pout and hide her head in her hands. But the young royal remained on her very best behaviour. 

Here, FEMAIL reveals some of Charlotte's standout Commonwealth Games moments...

At times, he was seen clenching his fists, sticking out his tongue, waving his arms in the air, putting his hands over his mother's mouth and standing in his seat for a better view of the spectacle

Sticking out his tongue! The four-year-old showcased several amusing expressions as he sat next to his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, in the royal box during the fourth day of Platinum Jubilee celebrations
