Kate Middleton gives birth to Princess Charlotte in 2015

Royal tradition continued when Catherine and William posed for photos with newborn Charlotte on the steps of the Lindo Wing before heading back home to Kensington Palace. 

They have fun together at polo matches

Summer means polo for the British royal family. On many occasions since becoming a parent, Catherine has brought her and William’s kids to polo matches. Cheering from the sidelines, the sport is a chance for the Cambridge family to have a more relaxed outing. The kids often play in the grass while William or their uncle, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, might be on the field. 

During the Maserati Royal Charity Polo Trophy in June 2018, Charlotte and Catherine had some particularly adorable mother-daughter moments. The Duchess of Cambridge carried Charlotte in her arms who had on a pair of sunglasses.

When the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went to Canada in 2016 on a royal tour, they brought along George and Charlotte. The tour wasn’t all work and no play. The family of four — Prince Louis didn’t come along until 2018 — went to a children’s party where the young royals got some time to play. 

In between balloons and marveling at bubbles, Charlotte and Catherine played with musical instruments.
