Princess Charlotte joined her parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on a visit to the Commonwealth Games.

The trio watched swimming, hockey and gymnastics while in Birmingham.

They also paid a visit to SportsAid, which supports young athletes, where Princess Charlotte placed a medal on its medal board.

The Earl and Countess of Wessex and their children, Lady Louise and James, Viscount Severn, also attended the Games on Tuesday.

England's women went on to win the hockey game 3-1


Before Prince William and Katherine's arrival, Prince Edward, who is vice patron of the Commonwealth Games, spoke with former prime minister Theresa May as he entered Sandwell Aquatics Centre during the men's 1,500m freestyle heats.

The royals cheered and applauded alongside the crowd for England 1,500m freestyle hopeful Luke Turley.

He won the second heat in 15:35.65, with Northern Ireland's Daniel Wiffin just under two seconds behind in second place, meaning both qualify for the final.
