This wasn’t the first time Charlotte has captured the spotlight at a royal event. She and Prince George notably stole the show at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding in May. She also made headlines when going to meet her baby brother, Louis, for the first time by giving a royal wave.

Charlotte also made history earlier this year when she became the first female British royal to keep her place in line to the throne after the birth of a younger male sibling. Following the Succession to the Crown Act of 2013, a royal child’s claim to the throne will no longer depend on their gender.
