In the short clip, Prince William and Kate were seen chatting away while Charlotte began to mimic her father's relaxed stance by leaning forwards and resting her clasped hands on her knees.

The young royal was in the host city of the Commonwealth Games to learn about a programme preparing the next generation of sportsmen and women for future events.

Prince William and Kate with Charlotte in Birmingham

During the outing, Charlotte appeared curious about her surroundings and the people around her at Birmingham University, and a little apprehensive at times, but received a reassuring arm around her shoulder or word in her ear from William, and held Kate’s hand at other moments.

The young royal revealed gymnastics was the sport she liked most and joined a nutritional workshop helping her parents place pictures of foods like nuts, bread and grapes into the right groups, whether protein, carbohydrates, antioxidants or healthy fats.

At one point Charlotte was asked to update a Team England medal board and added a bronze, won in the men’s team table tennis event, and a silver from the lawn bowls men’s pairs.

She was also taken by William and Kate to events at the Commonwealth Games and was photographed grinning during swimming heats and later joined her parents to watch a hockey match.
