Princess Charlotte melts hearts as she tells Prince George ‘you need to bow’ at funeral

1981

The two young royals were last minute additions for Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, with William previously saying he and Kate wanted to keep things “as normal as possible”.

After the funeral service, when Her Majesty’s coffin left the Abbey to start its final journey out of London to Windsor, Charlotte could be seen telling her brother “you need to bow”.

The older child seemed to take his sister’s instruction and lowered his head as the monarch’s coffin passed him.

Twitter users gushed over Charlotte, with @chlo_nicoIe saying: “Charlotte telling George he needs to bow is just gorgeous, she was definitely born to be a little princess.”

User @lilyofthelostv1 added: “I’m pleased they have each other to lean on for support and will look back on this in future glad they took part in it together.”

Another user @Melachino suggested Charlotte “is his Princess Royal”, with @MargieA1776 agreeing and saying: “Princess Charlotte is so like Princess Anne.

“She is no nonsense. Prince George is like King Charles strong but fine with his little sister telling him what to do.”The older child seemed to take his sister's instruction on board, lowering his head

Charlotte wore a black mourning coat with velour collar and matching wide-brimmed hat, while George was dressed in a navy blue suit with a black tie.

The seven-year-old Princess also wore a small horseshoe brooch as she arrived at Westminster Abbey, tipped as a nod to Her Majesty’s love of horses.

The Prince and Princess of Wales are understood to have thought “very carefully” ahead of the funeral about whether to involve their two elder children.

Sources told the Telegraph it was a collective family decision, suggesting it was something the children wanted to do.

She gave him a cursty and said something that lip reader Jeremy Freeman has been able to depict.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Jeremy explained Charlotte had said: “Pleasured to meet you.”

George was equally as polite and said “good morning” to the member of the clergy, according to Mr Freeman.
