Princess Charlotte left royal fans 'awwing' with her adorable reaction to the cameras at Prince Philip's memorial service this morning. 

Princess Charlotte has captured the hearts of royal fans everywhere after a clip of her reaction to being filmed at Prince Philip's memorial ceremony began circulating online this morning. 

The six-year-old accompanied her parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton, and her eight-year-old brother, Prince George, to the late Duke of Edinburgh's Service of Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey—much to the delight of the Cambridge family's loyal followers. Prince Louis, 3, the couple's third and youngest child, did not attend, likely because of his young age. 

The outing has already drawn plenty of chatter from royal fans, who have not seen Princess Charlotte in public since last year.

After arriving hand-in-hand with the Duchess of Cambridge, she took a seat between her mother and George at the front of the church and patiently waited for the service to commence. It's been reported that she was reassured by Kate, who was wearing a polka dot black dress and brimmed hat for the event, that she was allowed to smile upon entering the Abbey. 

Her reaction to realizing she was being filmed has gained particular attraction, with many taking to Twitter to share their thoughts. Charlotte pulled a goofy face after noticing the cameras, which were televising the event live for millions of viewers around the world. 

"Princess Charlotte is so cute," one fan wrote. "Glad she's not overwhelmed by the amount of cameras around and just having fun with it."
