The first time Prince William and Kate Middleton’s daughter, Princess Charlotte, turned and gave an over-the-shoulder wave to well-wishers gathered at St. Mary’s Hospital following the birth of Prince Louis last April, royal fans gushed over her adorable wave.
The “turn and wave” has since become Charlotte’s signature move. But who taught the princess the gesture that she shows off whenever she’s out in public? Here’s the answer to that and who else is practicing their own royal wave.
Times Princess Charlotte showed off her move
Princess Charlotte also delighted royal watchers with her wave less than a month after her little brother was born.
While climbing the steps of St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle with other members of the bridal party for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding she turned around and waved to the crowd gathered outside.
The young royal was sure to give that favorite gesture again as she walked up those same steps when Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank tied the knot in October 2018.
That day, because of the strong winds, things were a bit tougher for the princess but she still managed to turn back on the steps and throw up a wave for fans.
Who taught her to ‘turn and wave’?
During an engagement in March 2019 where Middleton was announced as patron of the Foundling Museum, Charlotte’s mother revealed where her daughter learned her go-to gesture.
As she walked into the building the Duchess of Cambridge turned around and gave a quick wave to reporters and everyone there hoping to catch a glimpse of her.
