all eyes on the great-grandson
George and Charlotte also mourned 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 service at Westminster Abbey. With solemnity and solemn expression, the children of the heir to the throne William and his wife Kate went to church. They walked among their parents and slowly followed their great-grandmother’s coffin.
Charlotte looked down. He wore a coat and a black hat with a bow on his long blond hair. He looked with folded hands in front of him. George wore a dark blue suit with a white shirt and tie. He looked mostly straight ahead and kept his arms by his side.
The children boarded the car with their mother Kate and their grandfather Charles’ wife, King Consort Camilla. His four-year-old brother, Prince Louis, was not seen at Elizabeth II’s service.
Prince William, the eldest son of King Charles III at 40, is now first in line to the throne. His successor will be his eldest son Prince George. Charlotte is now third in line to the throne, and Louis is fourth. Only behind William’s younger brother, Prince Harry.
Also Kate and Meghan are in focus
But not only children were the center of attention at the Queen’s funeral. Many people should have paid attention to mother Kate and her sister-in-law Meghan as well. The wives of William and Harry both appeared in black but in different fashion styles.
Kate, who now holds the title Princess of Wales – as did William’s mother Diana – wore a long-sleeved coat dress, a netted hat and pearl earrings. In addition, she wore a three-row Japanese pearl necklace from the deceased queen, which she already wore to her husband Prince Philip’s funeral in 2021, according to British news agency PA.
In return, Duchess Meghan wore a dress with a cape, covering bare hands, as well as a broad hat and pearl earrings. Meanwhile her husband Harry – like Charles’ brother Andrew – appeared at the funeral in a civilian cutaway suit. Because he has retired from his royal duties, unlike other members of the royal family, he is no longer allowed to come in uniform on official occasions. Andrew shared this fate, having been stripped of many of his titles for his involvement in a misdemeanor scandal.
However, an exception was made at the awakening in the Queen’s coffin at Westminster Hall on Saturday. Both took part in this in uniform.
