With a father who loves football and serves as the President of the Football Association, it is no wonder Princess Charlotte, 4, loves to kick the ball about alongside her older brother, Prince George, 5. Charlotte has never been shy about showing her sporty side, and with two brothers, it’s no wonder!

Her skills and love of the game were on display Wednesday at the King Power Royal Charity Polo Day where her father, the Duke of Cambridge was playing a game of polo with her uncle, the Duke of Sussex at the Billingbear Polo Club in Wokingham. The match was being held in memory of late Leicester City owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha who died in a helicopter crash last October.

The Princess was seen enjoying the afternoon kicking the football around with Prince George while their younger brother, Prince Louis, 1, kept their mother, the Duchess of Cambridge on her toes and entertained their aunt, the Duchess of Sussex. Little Louis was also spotted blowing a kiss to his baby cousin, Archie, who was in the Duchess of Sussex’s arms.

Princess Charlotte had her hair pulled back and played the game in the pink Celina Liberty Fabric Dress by Marie Chantal (£140/$196) and sandals while George was in a green shirt and khaki shorts.

The family later had a picnic at their car with snacks the Duchess had brought from their home. George and Charlotte sat in the boot of the vehicle while the Duchess and Louis sat on the grass with their sandwiches.

Love of football is a family affair. Not only is the Duke of Cambridge passionate about the game, but the Duchess of Cambridge is also known to enjoy the sport, as well. However, William and Kate root on two different teams – Aston Villa for the Duke and Chelsea for the Duchess.
