Queen Elizabeth II once said that Princess Charlotte is confident and always takes care of her big brother. Well, the daughter of the Prince and Princess of Wales proved once again that she is an expert when it comes to royal protocol and helped Prince George by reminding him of something he had to do during her great-grandmother’s funeral .
Prince George and Princess Charlotte attended Queen Elizabeth’s funeral
One of the biggest questions in the days leading up to Queen Elizabeth’s state funeral was: would Prince George and Princess Charlotte be there?
Just hours before the late monarch’s funeral, an order of service confirmed that the second and third in line to the British throne would be present with their parents.
According to the Mirror, “The royal couple thought long and hard while debating with the children before deciding they would attend.” However, their youngest child, Prince Louis, did not go due to his age.
While Prince William attended the funeral procession, his son and daughter traveled in the same car as their mother and the Queen’s new consort. As they entered the church, George and Charlotte walked behind the Queen’s coffin. The young prince wore a dark suit and his sister was dressed all in black with a black hat. She also wore a small horseshoe badge, which was thought to be a tribute to her great-grandmother, who loved horses.
Charlotte reminded George of proper royal protocol
On September 19, 2022, around 2,000 mourners gathered at Westminster Abbey to bid farewell to the Queen, thousands more lined the streets and billions from around the world watched.
There was a moment when cameras panned to George as Charlotte spoke to him and looked like she was instructing her sister to do something.
In a clip that has been circulating online, little Princess George appears to say, “You must bow,” as her Gan Gan’s coffin passed them.
The princess has been seen correcting her brother in the past
This wasn’t the first time Charlotte made sure her big brother was in line when he needed it.
During Queen Elizabeth’s platinum jubilee celebrations in June 2022, when the family made a final appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace at the end of the platinum competition, the princess corrected the attitude of the future king.
Cameras filming the event rolled as the national anthem (which was then sung as “God Save the Queen”) was played and George made the mistake of waving his arms in front of him. Noticing her sibling’s posture, Charlotte gave him a slight nudge and looked like she’d whispered, “Arms down George.”
Charlotte even set an example for her mother as Kate then gently pulled Prince Louis back as he leaned forward to keep his posture straight even during the anthem.
