The little princess and her brother Prince George joined the rest of the royal family at the Queen’s Christmas lunch on Wednesday (20 Dec 2017) and mingled with their future Aunt Meghan Markle at the festive occasion.

But Princess Charlotte looked ready for bed when she was driven away from Buckingham Palace this afternoon alongside her four year old brother and their nanny Maria Borrallo.

Dressed in a red cardigan and floral frock, the gorgeous toddler furrowed her brow when photographers’ lightbulbs flashed at her mum and dad’s black Land Rover Discovery, as they nipped out of the palace gates.

Kate and Prince William arrived with their children and the nanny in tow earlier in the day, with the couple seemingly in high spirits. The pregnant Duchess of Cambridge looked glowing, grinning as she chatted to her family.

Her daughter is preparing to go to nursery next year, with Kate enrolling her in the prestigous Willcocks Nursery School, located next to the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Fees for the private school – which is located near to their Kensington Palace home – are £9,150 a year for morning sessions and £5,400 for afternoons, and will provide Charlotte wit pottery and poetry classes.

Meanwhile, Meghan made her third public appearance at the Queen’s lunch, which saw her meet her husband-to-be’s cousins Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, and her uncle Prince Harry.

The American Actress looked stunning for her visit to Buckingham Palace wearing a black, high-neck lace dress.

She had styled her dark locks into a sleek straight ‘do which cascaded around her shoulders and tucked behind her ears, unveiling a beautiful pair of diamond earrings.

The 36 year old is expected to spend Christmas with the royal family next week.

The Queen’s Christmas lunch marks the first time the royal family are officially coming together with Harry’s future bride.
