Prince William and Kate Middleton didn’t bring four-year-old Prince Louis to the funeral, but George and Charlotte played a huge part in the day

Princess Charlotte reminded Prince George of some Royal protocol whilst in attendance at The Queen’s funeral yesterday.

The seven-year-old joined her older brother and parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton, at the service to say goodbye to Her Majesty.

After the funeral, the family stood among the other Royals outside Westminster Abbey as they watched the Queen’s coffin be transferred to the State Hearse.

Viewers then spotted the hat-wearing Princess reminding her nine-year-old brother to bow at their great-grandmother’s coffin before it makes its way to Windsor.

In the television coverage, the cameras turned to the youngest attending Royals just in the sweet moment where Charlotte appeared to say to George "you need to bow".

George then nodded to his sister as they continued to watch the touching moment where their great-grandmother’s coffin was driven past them.

Prince William and Kate Middleton didn’t bring their youngest, four-year-old Prince Louis, to the funeral but George and Charlotte played a huge part in the day - including the procession.

King Charles III and the Queen Consort led the procession behind the Queen’s coffin, with 2,000 guests watching the Queen enter Westminster Abbey for the last time.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte also attended the committal service at St George’s Chapel, in Windsor Castle - which took place yesterday evening.

The service was followed by a private burial in The King George VI Memorial Chapel, where Queen Elizabeth II will lay alongside her father, King George VI, and her husband, Prince Phillip.

The Queen had a close relationship with George and Charlotte, who called her Gan Gan.

Her Majesty nodded to their births In Her Majesty’s Christmas speeches in 2013 and 2015, she mentioned the births of both George and Charlotte respectively.

She once said: “One of the joys of living a long life is watching one’s children, then grandchildren, then great-grandchildren, help decorate the Christmas tree. And this year my family has a new member to join in the fun.”

It was reorted that The Princess of Wales previously revealed that George is the only one of her children to really understand his great-grandmother’s death.

However, Kate told mourners at Sandringham that Louis has said: “At least Grannie is with great-grandpa now.”
