Symbolic appearance of George (9) and Charlotte (7) at great-grandma’s coffin |
Last Safeguard for her “Gan-Gan”!
After much deliberation, Prince George (9) and Princess Charlotte (7) her parents – heir to the throne William (40) and Princess Kate (40) – for attend the Queen’s († 96) state funeral.
Symbolic appearance of the number two and three in line to the throne!
And the little royals showed greatness: they dutifully greeted the dignitaries in front of Westminster Abbey, bravely walked between mum and dad behind the coffin in the church filled with 2000 people.
HERE Elizabeth II was married in 1947, crowned in 1953 – and now given her farewell to the world.
Kate previously revealed how her children had taken the death of “Gan-Gan” (nicknamed for their great-grandma because George couldn’t say “Great-Grandma” as a toddler): George was beginning to see her importance as a monarch.
Little baby Louis (4, stayed at home in Windsor) told her: “At least she’s with great-grandfather now.” His biggest concern? Whether he can play at Balmoral in the summer without his grandmother.
During the hour-long service, George wiped his eyes, Kate laid a loving hand on his knee.
At the end of the final funeral procession through London, Charlotte burst into tears. The siblings supported each other – the princess whispered furtively to her big brother.
The next generation of sworn royals!
