George and Charlotte also mourn the Queen

Her four-year-old brother Louis was allowed to stay at home. But George and Charlotte attend the Queen’s funeral and inevitably find themselves in the spotlight. The children of Prince William and his wife Kate are doing well.
As the youngest members of the British Royal Family, Prince George and Princess Charlotte also attended the Queen’s funeral at Westminster Abbey. With solemn expression, the children of heir-apparent William and his wife Kate entered the church. They walked between their parents and walked slowly behind their great-grandmother’s coffin.
Charlotte looked down a lot. She wore a coat and a black hat with a bow over her long blond hair. She held her hands folded in front of her. George wore a dark blue suit with a white shirt and tie. He usually looked straight ahead and held his arms at his sides.
The children rode together in the car with their mother Kate and the wife of their grandfather Charles, royal consort Camilla. Her four-year-old brother Prince Louis was not seen at the service for Elizabeth II.
Prince William, the eldest son of King Charles III at 40, is now first in line to the throne. He is succeeded by his firstborn, Prince George. Charlotte is now third in line to the throne, and Louis is fourth. Only behind is William’s younger brother, Prince Harry.
Kate and Meghan also in the picture
But not only the children were the center of attention at the funeral service for the Queen. Many should also have paid attention to mother Kate and her sister-in-law Meghan. William and Harry’s wives both appeared in black, but in different fashion styles.
Kate, who now bears the title Princess of Wales – like William’s mother Diana – wore a long-sleeved coat dress, a hat with a net veil over her face and pearl earrings. In addition, she had put on a three-row Japanese pearl necklace from the late queen, which she had already worn in 2021 to the funeral of her husband, Prince Philip, according to the British news agency PA.
Duchess Meghan, in turn, wore a dress with a cape, including bare arms, as well as a distinctive hat and pearl earrings. Her husband Harry, meanwhile – like Charles’ brother Andrew – appeared at the funeral in civilian costume. Because he, unlike other members of the royal family, has retired from his royal duties, he is no longer allowed to appear in uniform on official occasions. Andrew shares this fate, as many of his titles have been taken from him due to his involvement in an abuse scandal.
However, an exception was made at a vigil at the Queen’s coffin at Westminster Hall on Saturday. Both took part in uniform.
