Kim Jong-un celebrated in style with his daughter at a banquet following a successful spy satellite launch.
Kim Jong-un was seen clapping and grinning away, while his daughter Kim Ju-ae who is believed to be aged 10 appeared more reserved with her expression.
In traditional North Korean style, the launch was blasted across state media to the country’s delight.
Scores of technicians from the National Aerospace Technology Administration joined Kim’s daughter in sporting the blue and red NATA t-shirts.
But interestingly Kim did not opt for one and instead wore his classic black trench coat.
He was also spotted celebrating the success with young scientists – a slight change from surrounding himself with North Korea’s senior cadres, top military officials and soldiers.
Earlier in the week Kim stunned with a light brown coat as he attended the launch of a spy satellite.
KCNA state news agency said North Korea has a fair few reasons to do this. ‘Strengthening its self-defensive capabilities’ and ‘defiantly ramping up war preparedness’ in the face of ‘the enemies’ dangerous military moves’ being among them.
Kim casually watched the ‘successful’ rocket liftoff that came after two failed attempts to launch spy satellites this year.
He has also increasingly started taking his daughter to missile launches for some apparent work experience.
Like her dad she’s quite the style icon after she was spotted wearing a £1,950 Christian Dior jacket in March.
She could be seen wearing the plush patterned hoodie as she watched the launch of the Hwasong-17 intercontinental ballistic missile at Pyongyang International Airport on March 16.
She only appeared in public for the first time last November – at a massive ballistic missile launch, of course.
She was, for a time, simply known as Kim’s ‘beloved daughter’, though some see her sudden presence in the public eye as a sign she’s his heir-apparent.
