Prince George and Princess Charlotte walk behind casket at Queen’s funeral

Prince George and Princess Charlotte walked behind Queen Elizabeth II’s casket at their great-grandmother’s funeral Monday morning.

Prince William and Kate Middleton’s eldest two children looked solemn arriving at Westminster Abbey in London with their mom.

The future king, 9, wore a navy suit and tie, while his sister, 7, sported a black dress and a matching hat.

For her part, the newly named Princess of Wales, 40, paired her black dress with a veil and a pearl necklace once worn by the late monarch.

The Prince of Wales, also 40, traveled to the service separately, arriving at Westminster Hall in a vehicle with his father, King Charles III. His brother, Prince Harry, rode in the car behind them.

Louis has been struggling to understand the sovereign’s passing, with Middleton telling Australia’s Governor-General David Hurley on Saturday that her little one has been “asking questions” about her death (via Daily Mail).

During a walkabout the previous week, the former Duchess of Cambridge told onlookers about Louis’ heartfelt reaction to news of the loss.

“Louis said at least Grannie is with great-grandpa now,” Middleton said, referencing Prince Philip, who died in April 2021 at age 99 after 74 years of marriage to the Queen.

The siblings were having their second day at Lambrook School in Windsor, England, on Sept. 8 when news broke of their great-grandmother’s health concerns.

Their father rushed to the Queen’s bedside at Balmoral Castle in Scotland with many of his family members.

However, Middleton stayed behind, picking up their children from their new school after Buckingham Palace confirmed Her Majesty’s death.
