Kate Middleton and Prince William are joined by Princess Charlotte to watch the Commonwealth Games  

Princess Charlotte was the star of the show today as she joined her parents Prince William and Kate Middleton in Birmingham to cheer athletes competing in the Commonwealth Games.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 40, was in high spirits as she arrived at the tournament alongside her husband the Duke, and their seven-year-old daughter, where they took their seats in Sandwell Aquatics Centre to watch the swimming heats. 

The mother-of-three appeared trendy in her £1,945 white Alexander McQueen trouser suit for the event, which she first wore during the Caribbean tour earlier this year.

Meanwhile Princess Charlotte, who was wearing a £44 Rachel Riley dress, appeared delighted to be attended the contest, gesturing wildly to her parents as they sat in the stands.

Kate was dazzling in the £1,370 fresh white jacket with matching £575 trousers from her favourite designer Alexander McQueen. 

Kate has a close affiliation with Alexander McQueen having worn the British fashion house’s designs on notable occasions, most famously to her wedding in 2011. 

The royal swept her long brunette locks back from her face in a bouncy blow dry for the occasion.

Meanwhile she kept her makeup neutral for the occasion, opting for a sweep of dark eyeliner and a touch of lipstick.

Keeping her look simple, the Duchess opted for minimal jewellery – but added some glitz to her look with a pair of dangling earrings. 

Senior royals are representing the Queen at the Commonwealth Games as she continues to take a step back from royal duties. The monarch, 96, remains in residence in her Scottish home of Balmoral, in Aberdeenshire. 

Prince Charles stood in for his mother at the spectacular opening ceremony and was greeted by cheers as he drove into the stadium in an Aston Martin. 

Meanwhile Sophie and Edward have made a number of appearances during the competition thus far.

The couple attended the contest yesterday alongside their children Lady Louise, 18, and James, 14. 

James and Lady Louise joined the rest of the family for the Queen‘s Jubilee celebrations earlier this year, but have largely grown up away from the limelight.

Lady Louise looked pretty in a pink and blue dress at the event, rewearing a Peter Pilotto gown from her mother’s wardrobe, while James and Sophie showed emotional reactions as they watched the action.

The Countess first wore the pretty Pilotto dress for a trip to the Chelsea Flower Show in May 2015. 

Last week, the Countess of Wessex re-wore a favourite blue patterned dress as she joined Prince Edward at the Commonwealth Games on Friday. 

Sophie donned a £795 frock from royal-approved designer Peter Pilotto to take in the action across a number of sporting events.

The couple started off with a trip to the gymnastics arena before taking their seats for a rugby sevens match.

Prince Edward put on a particularly animated display, holding his head in his hands as he struggled to watch.
