Princess Kate was seen in her motherly role as she comforted her two young kids to bid a final farewell to their beloved great-grandmother, whom they called ‘Gan-Gan’.
Many people called out the royal family for allowing little Prince George and Princess Charlotte to take part in the funeral of the Queen, given their extremely young age.
Yesterday, the palace advisors had also tried to convince their parents that it would be great to allow Prince George, who is second in line to the throne, after his father, Prince William.
Hence, it would send out a strong and symbolic message to the world about the monarchy. Therefore, the two young kids were seen abiding by Royal protocol and standing near their great granny.
There were images of how the duo was finding it hard to encompass the situation with Princess Charlotte breaking down into tears and the cameras being able to capture that moment.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry had issued a statement that he was against the decision and felt the kids who were just 9 and 7 years old were too young to be forced to go through something like this.
But Princess Kate continue to provide support and reassurance to her children throughout the event and was seen close by their side whenever she felt they needed a little support.
Both kids traveled via the royal car with the Queen Consort and their mom to the Queen’s funeral that was recently held at the Westminster Abbey today.
The couple’s youngest child, Prince Louis, was not pictured at the event while his siblings were in attendance, quietly observing the funeral as they paid a final goodbye to a woman they adored as ‘Gan-Gan.’
There were several moments during the service where Princess Kate could be seen hugging and patting her kids on the back and the knee, making sure they were okay. At one point, she even hugged little Charlotte, who seemed to be having trouble holding back her tears.
