The Cambridges Were Seen Cracking Up at the Platinum Party (and We Love Charlotte's Shocked Expression)

The festivities for Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee are currently underway, and the latest event to take place was the Platinum Party at the Palace, a celebration of Her Royal Majesty's reign that included musical performances from major stars like Adam Lambert, Alicia Keys, Lin-Manuel Miranda and more. And while this event was packed with big names, our eyes were on the Cambridges, who jetted back for the event after spending their morning at Cardiff Castle in Wales.

Prince William and Kate Middleton were seen seated around their two eldest kids—Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 7—while their youngest, Prince Louis, 4, did not attend the event. In a series of photos from the evening, the family was seen cracking up at something that happened on stage, and we loved this rare opportunity to see the whole family genuinely laughing.

And it wasn't just their laughs that caught our attention. This weekend, the royals have been making all kinds of headline-grabbing expressions, whether it was Prince Louis's reaction to a flypast at Trooping the Colour, or Prince Harry's giddy faces during the Service of Thanksgiving. Now, Princess Charlotte is the latest royal to steal the show with her facial expressions.

During one moment of the Platinum Party, the 7-year-old was seemingly shocked by something that was occurring on stage, and we can't get over the photos that show the young royal looking utterly surprised and with her mouth agape.

While we're not sure what made her look that shocked, we are dying to find out. Here's to hoping that we'll get a few more meme-worthy expressions from the royals before the weekend is done.
