Charlotte stole the show when she was pictured dancing to Encanto and conducting the band during the visit, giggling with her older brother.
The pair also joined other members of the family in the royal box during last night's Party at the Palace.
They were pictured waving flags in the front row, singing along with famous musicians and giggling during their great-grandmother's sketch with Paddington Bear.
Their younger brother, four-year-old Prince Louis, was seen on the Buckingham Palace balcony at the start of the celebrations.
Fans were delighted as the youngster covered his ears during the flypast, pointed to planes and pulled faces.
