The brother-sister duo stole hearts as they attended a children's party for military families at their Government House base in Victoria.
Prince George and Prince William arrived hand-in-hand, while Princess Charlotte was carried in on Duchess Catherine's hip.
Listen to Charlotte call Wills "dada" in the video above!
16-month-old Charlotte looked divine in a pastel blue sundress with a pink sash by Pepa & Co., which retails for £74.
Her trademark blue bow and matching shoes finished off the ensemble.
At the party, Charlotte was particularly entranced by the balloons. At one point the little princess pointed at the colourful display and remarked "pop!"
The beautiful Princess had the crowd in stitches when she met Moose the dog and decided to sit on him!

Charlotte made a firm friend in Moose.
The Princess adored her new fluffy pal.
Charlotte looked divine in a blue sundress with red embroidery.
Moose, who is a Labrador-Poodle cross and is a companion dog for cancer patients, clearly wasn't fussed by Charlotte's antics.
We wonder if Lupo is used to getting that kind of treatment back home?
Meanwhile big brother George, who looked smart in a navy jumper and beetroot-coloured shorts, loved playing with the bubble machine but proved nothing beats mum's hugs when he looked around and asked for his "mummy."
George also took a liking to the miniature horses and rabbits in the petting zoo.
The mini-royal was the life of the party!

At the garden party, there was also a balloon artist on hand and a petting zoo to entertain the royal children and guests.
Prince William and Duchess Catherine once again displayed how attentive and loving they are as parents, showering their two children in cuddles and kisses.
Princess Charlotte, who was born on May 2nd, 2015, has also reached another massive milestone - she's walking!
The one-year-old confidently strutted around the garden party like a pro.
Cuddles for George!
Prince William and George share a special bond.
Charlotte was cracking her mother up.
And the fourth-in-line to the British throne seems to be quite the chatterbox, too.
During a conversation with William, he asked her, "Do you want a balloon Charlotte?"
To which she replied, "Yeah!" Later she could be heard trying to summon her father by calling him "Dada." Aww!

Curious George loved the bubble machine.
The Cambridges are one tight family unit.
The family dynamics of The Cambridges were heartwarming to observe.
Prince George proved siblings will always have a slight rivalry when he spotted sister Charlotte at the balloon stand.
The young Prince immediately stopped patting a rabbit and raced over to his mum and Charlotte and asked, "But I want one! Can I have one?"
The little ones were delighted by the balloons.
When Prince George spotted Charlotte getting a balloon, he raced over and asked for one too!
Catch me if you can!
Cuddles for bunny...
The Duchess continued her high-fashion streak in a stylish cream dress by designer See By Chloe.
This marks the second engagement the siblings have made on the Royal tour following their arrival in Victoria last Saturday.
"The Duke and Duchess are really pleased to have this opportunity to introduce their children to Canada and it's great that they have the chance to play with other children while they are here," a spokesperson for the family said.
Jacket on or off?
She's still not sure!
That smile is seriously captivating!
George the bubble boy.
Earlier in the week, The Duke expressed his excitement at being able to introduce his children to Canada.
"Catherine and I are delighted to be back in Canada. When we were here last time, we had been married only three months. The warm welcome that you gave us at that important moment in our lives meant a lot to us – and we have never forgotten it,"
"We are so pleased that George and Charlotte can be with us... beginning their own lifetime of friendship with this wonderful country," the 34-year-old said in a keynote speech on Saturday.
Charlotte was very animated during the outing.
The Cambridges are coming to the tail-end of their eight-day tour.
Mummy's girl!
"We are so pleased that George and Charlotte can be with us," Wills said earlier in the week.
It's been a jam-packed week of engagements for the Cambridges but the focus of their trip has been family-friendly and low-key.
They've visited places like Yukon, Whitehorse, Vancouver and Bella Bella.
During their trip, they've requested to meet with people from "all walks of life" as they try to shine a light on issues close to their heart like mental health, drug addiction and the re-settlement of refugees.
Wills tries his hand at some balloon making.
Dad cuddles are the best, right Charlotte?
This marks the George and Charlotte's second appearance in Canada.
This certainly will be a day to remember!
This little bunny might remind George of his own pet, Marvin the hamster.
