Princess Charlotte already has her adorable royal wave down pat, but that doesn’t mean she’s above taking pointers from someone with more experience.

During Saturday’s Trooping the Colour flypast when the royal family stood together on the Buckingham Palace balcony, Charlotte, 3, looked over to see Queen Elizabeth waving to the crowds and then endearingly did the same thing.

Kate Middleton noticed the sweet exchange and then leaned in to giggle to her husband Prince William about it. Kate, 36, then turned to the Queen, 92, to acknowledge the delightful moment.

The next day while watching Prince William’s charity polo match in Gloucester, England, Charlotte took a cue from Queen Elizabeth once again by channeling her great grandmother’s latest accessory: sunglasses. The Queen wore dark shades to numerous public engagements in recent months, including two garden parties at Buckingham Palace.

The Queen had cataract surgery in May, the palace confirmed on Friday, so her eyewear is likely a result of seeing colors more brightly following the procedure to improve vision, whereas Charlotte simply protected her eyes from the sun in a way that complemented her darling ensemble.
