Prince George and Princess Charlotte join her great-grandmother’s funeral.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte had joined Queen Elizabeth II‘s funeral. Both are pretty young. Charlotte is seven years old, and George is nine years old. Both the young royals were seen whispering to each other as they watched their great-grandmother’s coffin following the procession from Westminster through the streets of London. Charlotte, as seen pointing something to her brother George, was the coffin was placed into the hearse. William and Kate are the two eldest children of the Prince and Princes of Wales. William and Kate joined other senior royals throughout the state funeral service and subsequent processions. Both George and Charlotte were followed closely by their uncle and aunt, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Both George and Charlotte were sitting in the front row. The funeral service had more than 2000 guests, which included world leaders and other dignitaries. Prince Louis, their younger brother, was not present for the funeral service. Kate had told mourners last week that both her children are doing well in the wake of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. This was their first appearance on the world stage post the incident. Till now, both have been largely absent from the public outings before the Queen’s funeral.
George, Charlotte, and Louis were not rushed to the Queen’s Balmoral estate in Scotland when the news of the worsening health of the Queen was announced as they were small children. Kate stayed behind with them as it was their first official day at Lambrook School in Windsor. Queen will be laid to rest at Windsor Castle in a private service.
She would be laid alongside her late husband, Prince Philip, her father, King George VI, her mother, Queen Elizabeth, and her sister, Princess Margaret. Following her death, George would now be second to the throne, and Charlotte would be third in line. William was the heir to the throne, and Charles would now be called King Charles III.
George and Charlotte were the only great-grandchildren who attended the funeral service. They are very young, but I think these will be captured in their memories.
