George and Charlotte carry out first royal duty as William ‘introduces them to Firm’

1181

PRINCE GEORGE and Princess Charlotte came to the fore on Sunday as they joined their dad, Prince William, for an official engagement on Father’s Day. A body language expert has analysed a sweet clip from the outing and claimed the appearance shows William is already “inducting them into the Firm.”

A body language expert has analysed the clip and claimed it shows the future king introducing his offspring to the ways of royal duty.

Body language expert and author Judi James told Express.co.uk: “This undeniably sweet moment could be George and Charlotte performing their first royal duty, doing the countdown at the start of a race, with their father doing a very gentle job of inducting them into the Firm.”

William is “the perfect parent” to his son George, having also suffered “social shyness” as a child, Judi claimed.

She added: “A trait for shy body language runs in the family but, having shown signals of social shyness himself for much of his life, William is the perfect parent to help George, in particular, gain confidence when all eyes are on him.”

Judi explained: “It is so good to see him walking off with his eldest son’s hand in his own, providing a sense of security and reassurance as well as making the young heir to the throne looking like a real chip off the old block.”

The Duke displays deep pride in his children as he bends down to share the microphone with them, the analyst said.

Judi explained: “As William bends to share the mic with his children, his lop-sided smile shows encouragement and pride as well as letting them know that they should be enjoying the experience as well.”

While George and Charlotte initially look cautious, outgoing Charlotte displays her own levels of confidence.

Judi added: “Both children look cautious at first but as they turn to face the runners and Charlotte’s back is turned on her dad and brother, we can see she takes her own decision to clap and then return a small wave to the crowds, suggesting her usual growing levels of confidence.”

The video was shared on Twitter by @MiddletonMaven and sent royal fans into a frenzy.

One fan gushed about “Charlotte’s little wave” followed by a crying face emoji.

The clip received hundreds of likes and retweets on the social media platform.

Monday is William’s 39th birthday and he is likely to have celebrated the milestone with family at Anmer Hall over the weekend.

George and Charlotte are third and fourth in line to the throne followed by their little brother Prince Louis, three.

Their position in the line of succession means George will one day be king while Charlotte and Louis may become working members of the Firm in future.

William and Kate are protective of their children’s privacy but share new family photos with the public to mark important milestones.

New photos of William with his two eldest in Norfolk at the weekend delighted fans with many commenting on how much George and Charlotte had grown over the past year.

Royal Family members wish William a happy birthday on social media on Monday.

The Queen’s birthday message to her grandson read: ” Wishing The Duke of Cambridge a very Happy Birthday today! #HappyBirthdayHRH”

Prince Charles shared a throwback photo of himself with William as a baby.

His message read:  A very Happy Birthday to The Duke of Cambridge!”
