Princess Charlotte Tells Photographers "You're Not Coming" to Prince Louis's Christening Party
Princess Charlotte has charmed her adoring fans at recent royal engagements—waving to photographers outside the hospital on the day she met her new baby brother Louis and doing somersaults in the grass while watching her father play polo.
But yesterday, following her brother's christening, while clutching the program for her brother's christening, the three-year-old felt the need to remind her audience to keep their distance. As she and her family left the chapel where Prince Louis had been baptized and began to make their way to a post-christening reception party, she told the phalanx of photographers "you're not coming" or perhaps "he's not coming."
Watch for yourself below—and there's a longer version of the video over on The Daily Mail:
Upon hearing his daughter's sweet admonishment, Prince William let slip a slight smirk. It is, after all, not the little girl's first playful moment. She stuck out her tongue as she arrived at her Uncle Harry and Aunt Meghan's wedding.
While some have interpreted Charlotte's post-christening comment as a cheeky reminder to the photographers of her status as a royal insider, I think perhaps she just wants to make sure they know not to hustle over to Clarence House for the reception.
The press can all go home and loosen their belts and relax—Charlotte on the other hand, still has to be on her best behavior for the family get-together.
The princess does have something to look forward
We'll have to wait till next time to find out whether Princess Charlotte wished she had shared her slice of seven-year-old cake with the photographers who follow her everywhere.
