Princess Charlotte, eight, witnessed the moment her grandfather Charles was crowned

Princess Charlotte’s unseen role after King Charles’s coronation revealed by Prince William

The Prince of Wales and his wife, Catherine, surprised well-wishers on the Long Walk in Windsor, and he has spoken about Princess Charlotte’s unofficial role at the King and Queen’s coronation.

When a young girl asked William, 40, who honored his father in Westminster Abbey, where his daughter Charlotte, 8, was, he responded, “She’s very tired after yesterday. She is spending the day quietly at home. Making sure her younger brother behaved himself was it.

The young Princess acted as a devoted big sister by holding Prince Louis’ hand as they entered and left the coronation service at the Abbey. Prince Louis is only five years old.

Throughout the two-hour service, Charlotte could also be seen chatting with her younger brother. Louis, who turned five months old last month, left the ceremony in the middle but rejoined his family in the carriage procession as they returned to Buckingham Palace.

Nine-year-old George, who was wearing a red uniform, was in the spotlight as one of his grandfather’s pages of honor.

Louis wore a Hainsworth Garter Blue Doeskin Tunic made by bespoke Savile Row tailors Dege and Skinner, while Charlotte matched her mother Catherine in a white Alexander McQueen dress with a floral headpiece.

The Prince and Princess of Wales and their kids were among the royals who joined the newly crowned King and Queen on the Buckingham Palace balcony to watch the flypast after the coronation service and carriage procession.

The five-person family waved to the onlookers and watched in wonder as the plane put on an amazing display. Catherine and William were even seen giving each other tender glances.

William and Catherine talked to picnicking families who were taking advantage of the summer sun before Take That, Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and other performers took the stage in Windsor for a musical extravaganza a few hours later.

The Princess nearly matched her husband’s outfit with a pale blue blazer, a white top, black fitted trousers, and sneakers. The Prince was dressed in a navy jacket, blue shirt, and blue pants.

During the meet and greet, Caroline Mulvihill from the Windsor and Maidenhead Rock Choir spoke with William.

“We were talking about the kind of music we do in Rock Choir and Will was telling us in their household they have a very diverse music taste and George is very into AC/DC and Led Zeppelin,” she said to the PA news agency. Hearing that was quite interesting.
