Princess Charlotte has been caught following the three-second rule after dropping her marshmallow treat on the floor. Charlotte attended an event for The Big Help Out on Monday with the Prince and Princess of Wales and her siblings. The family visited the 3rd Upton Scouts Hut in Slough, where they helped make improvements to the building.
Charlotte was spotted following the three-second rule after dropping a marshmallow on the floor whilst the group were making S’mores.
Understandably not wanting to waste the treat, the eight-year-old picked it up off the grass and continued eating it.
Footage of the moment was shared on Twitter, with royal fans finding the incident hilarious.
One Twitter user said: “Princess Charlotte dropped her food, picked it up, and ate it again. So me!!”
Another remarked: “It’s refreshing to see that even royalty uses the ‘three-second rule’. Princess Charlotte drops her s’more but it must taste too good to leave it in the grass.”
A third approved: “I can vouch – s’mores are worth even five seconds! I love how totally normal this is!”
The Big Help Out was aimed at bringing communities together with millions of people reportedly participating across the UK.
This was the youngest Wales child Prince Louis’ very first royal engagement, made extra special given that it was held on the third day of his grandfather King Charles’ Coronation.

Louis appeared to enjoy the s’mores just as much as his big sister as he was seen licking his fingers whilst diving into the American inspired treat.
The crowd could then be heard chuckling away after dad Prince William joked, “You won’t hear a peep out of him now”.
During their visit to Slough, the Wales family helped out with tasks such as resetting a path, digging a new soakaway, sanding and revarnishing the front door, and creating a mural.
All three children could be seen mucking in and appeared to be having great fun. As well as toasting s’mores, they also tried their hand at archery and even got the chance to ride in a digger.
