Prince George may be ahead of Princess Charlotte in line to the throne, but the future king’s younger sister takes her royal role seriously.
When the siblings watched the Platinum Jubilee Pageant parade from the Buckingham Palace balcony on Sunday, the princess, 7, noticed her 8-year-old brother’s hand resting on the ledge.
Charlotte immediately nudged George and told him to correct his posture. The heir did so, moving his hands to his side.
Prince William and Kate Middleton’s eldest children made many more appearances while celebrating Queen Elizabeth’s 70 years of service, including an official visit to Wales on Saturday.
While riding in the Trooping the Color procession on Thursday in a carriage, the little ones were joined by their younger brother, Prince Louis.
When the 4-year-old waved at onlookers, Charlotte took it upon herself to sweetly correct him as well. After the princess put her own hand in her lap, she reached over to bring Louis’ down.
“I couldn’t help but sing to him, and I think …
Charlotte stood beside her younger sibling later on as they made their balcony appearance with the 96-year-old monarch and other family members.
Louis made headlines for hilariously reacting to the loud flypast with his hands over his ears and his mouth wide open in a scream.
Middleton, 40, bent down to speak to Louis as he continued to steal the show with his silly expressions. Charlotte and George, for their part, remained well behaved.
While closing out the weekend’s festivities with the People’s Pageant on Sunday, Louis sparked even more memes by throwing a tantrum and making his mom laugh.
The little one covered the Duchess of Cambridge’s mouth and stuck his tongue out before she took him aside for a break. When Louis returned to his seat, he asked to sit with Prince Charles and giggled on his 73-year-old grandfather’s lap.
William, 39, and Middleton poked fun at Louis’ antics in their Monday Instagram post reflecting on the Jubilee.
“We all had an incredible time, especially Louis…,” the royals wrote.
