Three-year-old Princess Charlotte is already a pro at working the crowds.

Charlotte joined her big brother Prince George (four) with dad Prince William yesterday to meet their new baby brother, and, as expected, the crowds went crazy for the adorable pair.

Sightings of the royal children are kept minimal to protect their privacy, but their proud parents will share occasional portraits of the two or bring them on a royal engagement once or twice a year. Monday, however, was a family day - one that happened to be shared with the entire world.

And this time around, it was Charlotte playing it up for the cameras, casually waving to the world's press as she held her father's hand and made their way into the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital where her mother Kate Middleton was recovering. Just look at this.

The true pièce de résistance, however, was her finale as she turned around for one final over the shoulder wave, prompting a giggle from William and her adoring new fans. George, wearing his school uniform, looked about as thrilled as any four-year-old would be to be there.
