Controversy over Prince George with toy gun

Controversy over Prince George with toy gun

Charlotte was certainly in higher spirits than on Saturday, when she slipped and hit her head on railings while watching Trooping the Colour.

It was a family affair for the Royal family on Sunday.

The 3-year-old royal was photographed showing off her acrobatic skills to her mother, Kate Middleton, and her big brother, Prince George, 4, at Beaufort Polo Club in Gloucestershire.

Guns play a large role in the British tradition, particularly Royal Gun Salutes, which are considered a "sign of respect" at various functions, such as the birthdays of the Queen, George, and Charlotte, according to the official website of the monarchy.

Princess Charlotte seems to win new fans during every public appearance with her confident and cheery nature.

Controversy over Prince George with toy gun

Prince William was competing in the Maserati Royal Charity Polo Trophy in order to raise funds for both Royal Marsden Cancer Charity and Centrepoint, a foundation aimed at helping homeless young people. The newlyweds, now known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, rode through London in a horse-drawn carriage during the parade and were then spotted standing on the balcony alongside the other royals. As his parents and siblings waved from the Buckingham Palace balcony along with the rest of the royal family, he remained at home in Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace.

While sitting on the sidelines at the polo match, Princess Charlotte resourcefully used the grassy landscape to practice her headstands and show off some tumbling moves.

Prince William looked at the two playful children in front of him, seemingly unamused. "And everyone has to be on their best behavior".

William and Kate, who has been on maternity leave since giving birth to Louis, left the newborn home for Trooping the Colour as well.
