Princess Charlotte melted hearts around the world today as she warmly greeted fans with an adorable royal hand wave out the front of London’s St Mary’s Hospital.
The pint-sized royal was going to meet her baby brother with her dad, Prince William and older brother George, when she confidently smiled and waved to onlookers.
Holding on tight to his fathers hand, Prince George was a little more reserved than his sister.

The princess, who is fourth in line to the throne, not only melted hearts today… she also made history.
Following the birth of her baby brother, Princess Charlotte has now become the first British female royal to retain her claim to the throne thanks to the Succession to the Crown Act of 2013.
Previously, male siblings would automatically take precedence over their older sisters.
The newest royal addition is fifth in the line of Succession after His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge, His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge and Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.
