Princess Charlotte Shows Off Her Signature Move (That She Learned from Dad) in Brand-New Video

Over the weekend, Princess Charlotte appeared alongside her father—Prince William—in a brand-new video posted to the Cambridge’s Instagram account. And that’s when we saw the return of the young royal’s signature move: “The Charlotte Wave.”

In the video, the pair sent an encouraging message to England’s national women's football team, the Lionesses, ahead of their match against Germany in the Women’s Euro 2022 finals. William said in the clip, “We both want to wish the Lionesses the best of luck for tonight. You've done amazingly well in the competition and we’re rooting for you all the way.”

Princess Charlotte (who looked like her mother’s mini-me) sent a few encouraging words to the team, saying, “Good luck. I hope you win. Bye,” and ended the message with her signature wave. And it looks like their message worked because the Lionesses went on to win the finals. (Congrats!)

The young royal has used the move on several occasions. But, did you know she may have gotten it from her dad? That’s right, Prince William used the attention-grabbing wave as a young royal himself. And little Char started using it at just a year old. Ever since then, it’s been the royal’s go-to move when she is in front of a crowd of people.

This is just one of many personal messages the Duke of Cambridge sent the Lionesses before they made it to the finals. Back in July, he retweeted a video from the Lionesses’s official Twitter page. The duke sent a special message to the team and made sure to sign it with his personal signature.

We love seeing our fave father-daughter duo together.
