As if we needed any more proof that Kate Middleton is a supermom! When the 36-year-old Duchess of Cambridge appeared on the Buckingham Palace balcony with her family on Saturday, June 9 for the annual Trooping the Colour ceremony, Kate was spotted expertly catching her three-year-old daughter, Princess Charlotte, as she took a tumble while waving to royal fans below.
In the now-viral moment, Charlotte slipped off the step she had been standing on but, thankfully, eagle-eyed Kate grabbed her little girl before any real damage was done. Kate then picked up a noticeably shaken Charlotte and comforted her for a few moments before carefully placing her back down on the balcony step.
Kate catching Charlotte is far from the only Trooping the Colour moment royal fans are buzzing about today. Since the event — which publicly celebrated Queen Elizabeth’s 92nd birthday! — was the very first time Prince Harry‘s new wife, Meghan Markle, stepped out on the Buckingham Palace balcony, all eyes were on the newlyweds.
One thing that especially caught everyone’s attention was Meghan’s perfect curtsy to the Queen while she stood on the balcony. Not only was her curtsy totally polished, but she coincidentally did the gesture at the exact same time as her new sister-in-law Kate, who (of course) is a pro at royal curtsies!
Charlotte’s older brother, Prince George, also made headlines over the weekend when his cousin Savannah Phillips hilariously shushed the royal tot by covering his mouth during the ceremony. If you don’t know, Savannah is the seven-year-old daughter of Princess Anne‘s son, Peter Phillips, and his wife, Autumn Kelly. The royal couple are also parents to a six-year-old daughter named Isla Phillips. Sisters Savannah and Isla are just two of Queen Elizabeth’s six great-grandchildren.
