Princess Charlotte and Prince George shared a sweet sibling moment at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II as she seemingly instructed him to bow when their great-grandmother's coffin passed by.

Princess Charlotte and Prince George were spotted sharing a sweet sibling moment at the Queen's funeral after saying their final goodbyes to their late great-grandmother. 

The eldest children of the Prince and Princess of Wales, who attended both the ceremony at Westminster Abbey and the Committal service at St George's Chapel, Windsor afterwards, were stood with other members of the Royal Family waiting to greet the Queen's coffin after its procession from Westminster Abbey to Wellington Arch.

In footage from the poignant moment, Princess Charlotte, seven, can be seen seemingly advising Prince George, nine, on royal protocol. 

In the clip, Charlotte appears to say, "When the car comes you need to bow".

Shortly afterwards George can be seen lowering his head at the right time. 

“I love that Princess Charlotte did her own curtesy and wasn’t looking at the Princess of Wales. She knows. And her reminding Prince George when to bow! The Royal Family is in good hands,” one tweet said.

Another viewer put, "How well behaved they were. So proud of them,” 

And a third royal fan added, "How sweetly Princess Charlotte curtsied on her own. Their behaviour was exemplary.”

Princess Charlotte honoured the Queen's love of horses when she wore a horse shoe shaped brooch on her mourning jacket. It comes after Lady Louise Windsor was spotted wearing a horse-shaped necklace to the special Vigil held by the Queen's grandchildren as her coffin Lie-in-State on Saturday 17th September.

Princess Charlotte and Prince George attended the funeral, unlike their younger brother Prince Louis who was absent from the day's proceedings.
