Watch Princess Charlotte’s Adorable Reaction When Paddington Bear is Mentioned
Princess Charlotte’s face lit up at a carol service when the name of a well-known character from a children’s book was said. Hugh Bonneville, who plays Paddington, will read from “Paddington’s Christmas Post” at the “Together at Christmas” concert. This made the 7-year-old royal very happy.
Charlotte and her 9-year-old brother, Prince George, sang “Away in a Manger” and other carols at the service, which took place earlier this month but was shown on Christmas Eve.
Their mother, Kate Middleton, planned the concert at Westminster Abbey. It was a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II, who died in September at the age of 96.
Middleton said in the beginning of the service that its goal was to “follow Her Majesty’s tradition of thanking people who have gone out of their way to help others. Her Majesty has left us an amazing legacy that has moved many of us deeply.”
She said, “This year’s carol service is in honour of her and all those who have died.” Mel C from the Spice Girls, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Alexis French, a pianist, were also on the bill.
The young royal may have liked the marmalade-loving bear character because the Queen “acted” with him in a memorable skit that started the star-studded “Platinum Party at the Palace” tribute concert outside Buckingham Palace in June.
The king or queen had high tea with the Peruvian bear. The bear drank tea straight from the spout and made a mess by splattering cream all over a Palace footman with a poker face. After the Queen died, hundreds of Paddington Bears were left outside Buckingham Palace as a tribute.
On Christmas Day, Princess Charlotte went to St. Mary Magdalene’s church with her family and younger brother Prince Louis, who is 4. Louis took part in the annual royal tradition of walking up to the church and greeting people outside for the first time.
