Princess Charlotte and Prince George looked extra smart as they joined parents William and Kate for tonight’s Party at the Palace.

There were huge cheers at the Cambridges arrived for the star-studded show, featuring performances from the likes of Elton John, Diana Ross and Queen.

Charlotte, seven, wore a red dress and waved a Union Flag while George, eight, was fully suited and booted.

Some on social media commented on how adorable they both looked, but others asked why they couldn’t be allowed to ‘dress like kids’ – even if they are royals.

Kate wore an elegant all-white ensemble while William donned a blue suit as the family clapped from the royal box.

The Queen, 96, will not be attending tonight’s festivities, having dropped out of a few Platinum Jubilee events due to her ongoing mobility issues.

But she still opened up the evening in style – starring in pre-recorded skit with none other than Paddington Bear.
