The entire United Kingdom was overjoyed with the birth of the newest addition to the royal family. The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a healthy baby boy last April 24th named Louis Arthur Charles with the official title of His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge. The newborn prince will be the fifth in line to the British throne after his grandfather Prince Charles, his dad Prince William, older brother Prince George and elder sister Princess Charlotte.
The entire world was waiting for the new prince’s arrival, the members of the press had been waiting for days at the front of the door of the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital. However, before the world got a glimpse of their new prince, they were actually graced by the presence of Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The princess immediately caught the attention of the media after doing the most adorable wave, even before entering. The princess also just celebrated her 3rd birthday.
Mastering the Royal Wave
Every member of the Royal family, whether it is by birth or marriage, must know how to do the perfect royal wave. According to royal expert Victoria Arbiter, a lot of people are actually trying to imitate the royal wave and it is totally fine. Then again, people don’t really understand that it is no simple wave, it actually means a lot more than that. She said that a royal wave is very distinct because it represents class and regality.
It is often described to be with a “vertical hand with a subtle twisting of the wrist”. Some people who try to imitate it actually do it with an exaggeration like twisting their wrists too fast and rough or sometimes too slow and stiff. It is something that the members of the royal family must perfect every single time. Aside from the wave, royals don’t fist bump, or high five, they only do shake hands as greeting.
The elegance and class of the royal wave make it obvious that it is restricted within the family. The Queen herself, even after more than 60 years of doing thousands of waves, has definitely nailed the royal wave every single time. Royal experts said that this is something that the Queen learned from her grandmother, Queen Mary. The female members of the royal family, just like Princess Diana, Duchess Kate and now Duchess Meghan, had to learn the wave meticulously and perfectly.
The only princess of the Cambridges has managed to learn the royal wave at such a really young age. The Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge had been on a royal trip all over the globe last year, and they have decided to bring their children with them. This was an opportunity for the young princess to master her royal wave. It was first seen when they were visiting Germany and everyone literally gushed over the princess’ most adorable wave.
However, the most popular one is actually the latest one when she went to visit her newborn younger brother at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital with Dad, Prince William, and older brother Prince George. The media went crazy over the cuteness of the princess, especially when she turned halfway as she reached the door and did the last wave before going in.
Princess Charlotte Turns 3
It was Princess Charlotte’s birthday a few months ago and so the media decided to give the young princess a tribute by recalling her most adorable moments so far. Just like her most memorable tantrum incident while she was visiting Poland and Germany along with her parents and big brother. It showed how the princess is just like any other toddler who seems to be getting too bored and started stamping her feet before falling to the ground. Her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge then picked her up while the princess was on the verge of tears.
Then again, the princess appears to have a much more lively personality compared to her shy older brother, Prince George. This was even confirmed by the Queen herself and her own father, Prince William. The Queen mentioned how the young princess usually shows her brother who’s boss, and her dad admitted that she definitely has an interesting and entertaining personality. He even shared how the princess loves to sing and dance all the time.
