JOHANNESBURG - It may have been Queen Elizabeth II's big day, but it was her great-granddaughter who stole the show, giving her first royal wave to the adoring crowds.

Princess Charlotte made her official debut on the balcony of Buckingham Palace as the Royal Family observed an RAF flypast to mark the Queen's 90th birthday.

The 13-month-old along with her brother Prince George appeared on the Buckingham Palace balcony.

Wearing a pink dress with a matching pink bow and shoes, Charlotte gave the people her biggest smile and a wave.

All eyes were on the little princess as she gave her first royal wave to the crowds below.

The young royals joined their parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton, Prince Harry, the Queen and her husband, Prince Philip, as they greeted onlookers and waved to those who wanted to wish the Queen well.

The Queen was also the centre of attention in her neon green ensemble.

Britain held a National Service of Thanksgiving in honour of Queen Elizabeth on Friday, launching a weekend of events to mark the official 90th birthday of the country's oldest and longest-reigning monarch.

The service at London's St Paul's Cathedral, attended by a host of dignitaries including other members of the royal family and Prime Minister David Cameron, was a double celebration for the queen with Prince Philip, her husband of 68 years.
