VIEWERS of last night's Party at the Palace have criticised the BBC for showing Princess Charlotte looking "bored".

The royal youngster attended the star-studded concert celebrating Her Majesty's 70 years on the throne with dad Prince William, mum Kate Middleton and older brother George.

She looked thrilled for much of the evening, belting out Sweet Caroline while proudly waving a flag with her sibling.

But occasionally, the camera panned to the seven-year-old yawning or looking a little disinterested and worn out.

Those watching at home were quick to condemn the broadcaster, insisting the children had had a long day.

Both George and Charlotte accompanied their parents on a royal visit to Wales that morning – their first official engagement.

Children's author Helena Pielichaty said: "Stop panning to Prince George and Princess Charlotte just to catch them looking bored and fidgety – give them a break."

Someone else wrote on Twitter: "Everyone saying Prince George and Princess Charlotte are 'bored'.

"They were in Cardiff mere hours ago – they've had a busy day!

"At their age I'd have been zonked out my seat!"

And a third added: "Anyone else feeling that George and Charlotte might just need an early bedtime after their trip to Wales?!"

Throughout the rest of the evening, the Cambridge kids danced in their seats to We Will Rock You and smiled with their parents.

Kate, who looked stunning in white, was in high spirits at the glitzy event, where performers included Diana Ross, George Ezra and Craig David.

She laughed out loud as she chatted with Mike and Zara Tindall, who were seated behind her.

As Adam Lambert performed with Queen, she was spotted shaking her shoulders and smiling as she boogied.

And she and William appeared to know every word to Any Dream Will Do, signing along as Jason Donovan took to the Party at the Palace stage later on.


It was no wonder the children were perhaps feeling exhausted after they joined their mum and dad for a visit to Cardiff Castle earlier on Saturday.

A giggling little Charlotte stole the show as she pretended to conduct a band – and appeared to dip into a curtsey.

She and George appeared to love the outing – chuckling as Charlotte led musicians performing We Don't Talk About Bruno from the hit Disney film Encanto.

Touchingly, George's visit reflected his dad's first official trip to Wales at the same age when he joined Princess Diana and Charles in Cardiff in 1991.

Younger brother Prince Louis – who appeared on the Buckingham Palace's balcony with his family after Trooping the Colour on Thursday – missed out on the visit, as well as last night's gig.

The Queen was also not in attendance after missing yesterday's Epsom Derby Day, opting instead to watch it on TV from Windsor Castle in her "comfy clothes".

She also skipped Friday's Service of Thanksgiving after experiencing "discomfort" during Trooping the Colour on Thursday.
