It would seem that Princess Charlotte takes after her grandmother when it comes to her talents. The youngster is showing signs of being a budding musician, after an impromptu performance in Cardiff. 


Princess Charlotte joined her brother George and parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in Cardiff today on a visit to Cardiff Castle to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

Kate Middleton's red coat was a stunning tribute to the Welsh flag, with the family dressed up to the nines for the occasion. The Cambridge family left four-year-old Prince Louis at home, who is thought to have been too young to join the visit.

The family looked in high spirits as they met with musicians and entertainers putting on a special show to mark Her Majesty's 70-year reign on the throne. 

At one point, Princess Charlotte joined the orchestra on stage and Princess Charlotte led musicians as they belted out the hit track, We Don't Talk About Bruno, from the Disney film Encanto.

Charlotte and George then gave a special demonstration on the drums, with the @kensingtonroyal account, tweeting, "So lovely to meet the stars and team behind tonight’s concert. 

"We had an extra special drum demonstration for George and Charlotte, saw a stunning performance from the Wales Youth Choir for Good and had a sneak peak at how the show will come together."

Kate and Wills also had a go at conducting the orchestra to the song Sweet Caroline. 

A love of music is a trait shared with Charlotte's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, who is a keen piano player, sang madrigals at Windsor and also has two honorary music degrees.

The musical gene clearly runs in the family, with Kate previously revealing that Prince George is learning to play the guitar, according to PEOPLE.

Today marks the penultimate day of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations for the Queen.
