  • Princess Charlotte, six, and Princess Beatrice, 31, shared a smile at service 
  • A body language expert has revealed how the moment showed a ‘deep bond’
  • Darren Stanton explained how the small interaction was a sign of their friendship
  • The expert revealed: ‘Princess Charlotte thinks a great deal of Beatrice’

Princess Charlotte’s smile with Princess Beatrice during Prince Philip’s memorial showed the pair share a ‘deep bond’, a body language expert has claimed.

The six-year-old royal charmed everyone with her impeccable behaviour at her great-grandfather’s memorial, at Westminster Abbey, in London yesterday.

At one stage, the little royal side-glanced to her second cousin Princess Beatrice, 33, with the the pair exchanging a loving smile.  

Body language and behavioural expert Darren Stanton told FEMAIL the shared smile showed a great relationship between the two, saying: ‘It was fascinating to see how Beatrice sensed Charlotte’s look in her direction and it suggests the two definitely share a deep bond with each other.’ 

The two royals have previously been snapped looking friendly at Princess Eugenie’s wedding, while Princess Beatrice’s young stepson Wolfie is a similar age to Princess Charlotte.

Darren said: ‘A really lovely moment occurred between Charlotte and Beatrice during the service.

‘Charlotte was seen looking over her shoulder to try and catch Beatrice’s eye – almost instantaneously Beatrice smiled. 

‘From her exaggerated and mischievous smile, it’s clear Charlotte thinks a great deal of Beatrice, she wants to have her attention – it suggests the two share a fantastic friendship.’ 

He added: ‘Princess Charlotte went on to charm the Archbishop of Canterbury and was all smiles for the world cameras.

Princess Charlotte and Beatrice spent time together when the little royal acted as a bridesmaid for Princess Eugenie in October 2018 (pictured together)  

‘It was clear the sister of the future king was on top form throughout the day.’

Charlotte’s father Prince William and Princess Beatrice are just six years apart in age, and enjoyed a close friendship when they were younger. 

And while Beatrice’s daughter Sienna is just a baby, her five-year-old stepson Wolfie is much closer to Princess Charlotte in age.

As one of Beatrice’s sister Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s bridesmaids, Princess Charlotte will have spent a lot of time with both of the sisters in the past.

Beatrice was seen walking the little flower girl into the service in October 2018, with the pair exchanging a smile outside St George’s Chapel before the event.

During the service yesterday, Princess Charlotte stole the show as she joined her parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Cheeky Charlotte charmed the Archbishop of Canterbury and smiled to photographers as she made her grand entrance at Westminster Abbey.

At one point the schoolgirl princess pulled a funny face after apparently catching sight of herself on a screen, prompting viewers to giggle over her ‘sparkling’ personality.   

Darren, who was speaking on behalf of slingo, added: ‘Charlotte is the more inquisitive one out of her and her brother George. 

‘While both were very well behaved sat next to their parents in the church, Charlotte was seen looking around at everyone.

‘No doubt taking in the grandiose and overwhelming environment, she is probably too young to realise what it’s all about.’

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made the decision to bring their two eldest children to Westminster Abbey so they could pay their respects to their great-grandfather Prince Philip.

The service marks one of the important outings to date for the two young royals, both of whom enjoyed a close relationship with Prince Philip before his death at the age of 99 last April.

Also in attendance were Peter Phillips’ daughters Savannah, 11, and Isla, 10, and Mia Tindall, the eight-year-old daughter of Mike and Zara Tindall.

But it was sparkling Charlotte who was the centre of attention as she strode into the Abbey hand-in-hand with her mother, Kate.

As they approached the Abbey’s doors, Kate – who was smiling – told her serious looking daughter ‘you can smile’ according to expert lip reader Jacqui Press. Charlotte then smiled.
