Robert Abela’s daughter has become an overnight social media sensation.
Giorgia Mae, 7, stole the show just minutes after her father was sworn in as Malta’s new Prime Minister.
She was spotted waving enthusiastically to the crowds in Valletta from the balcony of the Palace on Monday afternoon.
Social media users were quick to praise Giorgia Mae, describing her as ‘adorable’.
One posted on Facebook: ‘How adorable is his little girl making her debut on the Palace balcony.
Another added: ‘Giorgia Mae is having the time of her life. Lol.’
A third wrote: ‘Seems like I’m not the only one who thinks that girl stole the show. How cute.’
One mum added: ‘I just love the way they let her be herself. Not forced to look poised and solemn.
‘This is a lesson for us all. Let kids be kids and behave as such.
‘May we all learn to be positive and show it like her – happiness and smiles are contagious and our country needs more of that.’
