THIS is the adorable moment Princess Charlotte copies The Queen’s royal wave as they greet fans at Trooping the Colour.
The three-year-old Princess was seen excitedly waving at the thousands gathered outside Buckingham Palace with two hands – before realising her great-grandmother had a very different style.

The fourth-in-line was quick to follow the Queen’s lead, using one hand to recognise the cheering thousands from the balcony.
Mum Kate Middleton, who is keeping a watchful eye on the toddler, can be seen laughing – turning back to tell Prince William.
Charlotte stole the show on Saturday as she was surrounded by her family on Saturday.
And the daughter of Prince William and Kate Middleton was certainly a mini-monarch, wearing a similar shade of blue to her 92-year-old great-grandmother.

The little girl was joined by big brother Prince George on the balcony over the weekend, but little brother Louis was no where in sight.
But while Princess Charlotte initially seemed excited about the big day, she later appeared to become tearful.
At one point Kate Middleton who looked elegant in her blue dress, crouched beside her in a bid to calm down the young princess.
And cousin Savannah Phillips, daughter of Princess Anne’s son Peter, was also on hand to cheer the little royal up.
