Princess Charlotte wanted to be just like her great-grandmother, and Kate Middleton's reaction will warm your heart.
The video is taken from Tropping the Colour in 2018 when members of the Royal Family took to the balcony of Buckingham Palace to watch the display.
During the occasion, little Charlotte – who was three-years-old at the time, can be seen standing in front of her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, as she claps for the planes.
Prince George's little sister can then be seen looking over at the Queen and seeing the Monarch regally waving to the crowds.
The Princess then stops her clapping and instead decides to start waving, just like Her Majesty.
Watch the moment here:

One of the sweetest moments, however, is the Duchess of Cambridge's reaction as she realises what Charlotte has done.
Kate can be seen watching her daughter's actions, and lets out a little laugh when she realises what just happened before turning to William to tell him about the heartwarming moment she just witnessed.
The moment delighted fans when it first happened in 2018, just like it has now the clip has been unearthed.
One person wrote on Twitter: "I love this little video of Princess Charlotte coping The Queen’s wave, so cute."
Another commented: "My favourite is when Charlotte looks to the Queen and she give a wave. She is so cute."
Obviously, we totally agree.
