Princess Charlotte handed adorable gift by royal fan as Prince George watches on

Princess Charlotte stole everyone’s heart as she arrived for the first time to the Christmas Day service at St Mary Magdalene Church with her parents and older brother. The four-year-old greeted dozens of will-wishers waiting on the premises of the chapel and now it has emerged one fan gave the young royal a touching gift. Gemma Clark, 39, has shared a previously unseen photograph that shows Charlotte smiling as she was handed a bright pink inflatable flamingo by the royal fan.

The photograph shows Charlotte, who wore her hair down with matching plaits, looking elated at the gift as Prince William and Prince George watch on.

Ms Clark, who was in a wheelchair, said she was elated that the Cambridge family came over and spoke to her and her family.

She said: “It made my day. I’ve never seen the royal family, ever.

“This is my first time at Sandringham and I would love to do it again.”

The royal fan, who has cerebral palsy, said she was thrilled to get a thank you hug from Princess Charlotte after giving the gift.

The 39-year-old said she was given the inflatable flamingo, named Felicity, for her birthday and took it to different places and recorded its travels in a scrapbook.

Princess Charlotte, who wrapped up in a warm festive green coat for the festive service, also greeted other fans who were waiting outside the church.

She greeted twins Thomas and Theresa Richman, nine, who were delighted when they presented the Cambridges with flowers.

The siblings, who suffer from Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, were able to secure a place in front of the main crowds in their wheelchairs and spoke to both George and Charlotte.

Their overjoyed mother told The Daily Telegraph: “It was absolutely stunning – I survived breast cancer six years ago so to still be here and see that today with the children was absolutely tremendous.

“I think this has made our Christmas and made our year, it was a real honour to meet them all.”

Princess Charlotte didn’t appear overwhelmed by the crowd of well-wishers, and was encouraged by her mother Kate to speak with the crowd.

Footage shows the Duchess of Cambridge reassuring and helping her daughter interacting with the crowd by placing her arm around her daughter as she crouched down to her.

This walkabout from the Queen’s residence to the chapel is often regarded by commentators as a proper royal duty, with well-wishers and royal fans gathering outside of the church to catch a glimpse of the royals.

Royal parents usually wait for their children to be old enough to attend this special service with the Queen, as the event can be quite overwhelming due to the presence of photographers and royal fans outside of the church.

Princess Charlotte turned four in May – the same age at which her uncle Prince Harry debuted at Sandringham.

Prince George, six, also made his first appearance outside St Mary Magdalene Church last year.

The third-in-line to the throne looked all grown-up wrapped up in a navy suit and jumper as he walked side by side with his parents.

Charlotte’s younger brother Prince Louis did not attend the Church service.

Being only 18 months old, the little Cambridge won’t be seen at St Mary Magdalene Church for a few years.
