“Prince George and Princess Charlotte took part in the royal family procession behind the Queen’s coffin as the family made their way down the aisle of Westminster Abbey for the state funeral. They were spotted arriving in a car alongside their mother Kate Middleton and Camilla, Queen Consort.”
To honour their loving great-grandmother, Prince George, 9, and his sister, 7, sat in the backseat of their mother’s car as they followed the military parade from the church to Wellington Arch in the heart of London. Prince George was dressed in a black tie, and his sister wore a black hat.
Following Queen Elizabeth II‘s funeral at Westminster Abbey on Monday, September 19, 2022, Kate, Princess of Wales, and her children Prince George and Princess Charlotte ride in a car behind the monarch’s casket as a gun carriage draws it through the streets of London.
Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis started their first day of school at Lamb Rook on Thursday, September 8, the same day that Queen Elizabeth passed away.

Inbaal Honigman, a body language specialist, responded to the criticism by saying:
