Royal fans praise Princess Charlotte’s impeccable funeral appearance & compare her to her beloved Gan-Gan, the Queen | The Sun

ALL eyes were on the Royal Family during the Queen’s state funeral yesterday, and fans are praising Princess Charlotte’s impeccable appearance.

From the hidden message behind her jewellery to the sweet moment she reminded big brother Prince George to bow, fans are comparing her heartwarming nature to The Queen herself.

The sweet seven-year-old behaved flawlessly during the proceedings for her “Gan-Gan”, which were watched by billions around the globe.

It was originally unknown whether Princess Charlotte and Prince George, nine, would attend their great-grandmother's state funeral, or committal service, but they were present at both.

Their late inclusion is thought to be the idea of parents Prince William and Kate – who believed it important they attend the historic occasion, despite them being the youngest mourners there.

In moving scenes, George and Charlotte looked solemn as they arrived at Westminster Abbey with their parents.

Their younger brother Prince Louis, four, who delighted the nation during the Jubilee celebrations, remained at home, given his young age.

Kate was seen placing a reassuring, gentle hand on their shoulders as they entered the memorial and was praised for her comforting parenting style.

Fans were quick to spot Princess Charlotte’s horseshoe brooch, which she wore on a simple black dress and paired with a matching hat, and pointed out the hidden meaning.

The brooch was a gift from her late great-grandmother and is particularly poignant as the Queen was known for her love for horses.

Princess Charlotte pays sweet tribute to the Queen with jewellery

It is believed to be the first time Princess Charlotte has worn jewellery and also a hat in a public appearance. 

Charlotte was snapped in a number of cute and heartbreaking moments throughout the day.

In a sweet clip, Kate was seen reminding her children to curtsy during the proceedings.

As the Princess of Wales lowered into a deep curtsy, she quietly told her two impeccably-behaved kids to follow suit as they stood in front of her.

Later, royal fans spotted Charlotte appearing to remind her brother about royal protocol at Wellington Arch, as they watched the Queen's coffin being transferred to the State Hearse ahead of being driven to Windsor. 

And as Charlotte stood next to her brother, she was seen mouthing something to him, with lip readers decoding it as "you need to bow".

Upon being told of his duty by his younger sister, George – who looked smart in a navy blue suit – nodded.

Charlotte also “appeared to show support” for “dignified but grief-stricken” mum, according to body language expert Judi James.

Judi told Fabulous: “There were moments when it seemed Prince William and Kate were benefiting from the support and reassurance of their two small children rather than the other way round.”

There was another moment where the young princess looked to her aunt, Sophie Wessex, and copied her as she curtsied.

Royalists gushed on Twitter over the "adorable moment" and "touching show of respect".
