Taking to social media to applaud the children, one viewer wrote, "I’m so incredibly proud of Prince George and Princess Charlotte. they handled today with the respect and maturity beyond their years."

Another added, "I was so impressed -utterly poised and well behaved- also, during the long drive after the service, again so impressed that they didn’t seem fidgety or restless. Great parenting."

And a third supporter wrote, "I found today is a reminder of just how young they both are. But they handled this very grown up event well. William & Catherine must be so proud."
