Princess Charlotte was reportedly 'told off' by Queen Consort Camilla at the Queen's funeral, with her behaviour seeing Kate Middleton get 'scolded' too. 


Princess Charlotte was reportedly told off by Camilla, Queen Consort at the Queen's funeral.  

Queen Elizabeth II's funeral (opens in new tab) saw great-grandchildren Prince George, nine, and Princess Charlotte, seven, take part in the proceedings. But following the service, in which the children behaved "impeccably", there was a procession to Wellington Arch where Queen Consort Camilla reportedly had to keep the children's behaviour in line. 

Upon reaching the next stage of the funeral procession, Prince George appeared to have pinched his sister. Princess Charlotte then seems to react to his force, having yelped out in pain before turning swiftly to stare at George before facing towards to say, "OW!"

Meghan Markle (opens in new tab) is said to have taken a soft approach to the youngsters by tilting her head and smiling, Camilla is believed to have found Princess Charlotte's behaviour 'rude and unnecessary'.

According to My London (opens in new tab), Camilla, Is rumoured to have frowned and pointed at Charlotte, before giving the youngster's mother, the Princess of Wales, a harsh stare.

Camilla then frowned and pointed at the seven-year-old before turning to Kate and saying, "Take her."

One viewer who was watching the live coverage, tweeted, "Looks like Prince George and Princess Charlotte have a small disagreement. Look at The Queen Consort , Camilla."

Another pointed out, "If the boy pinched her, why is she getting into trouble."

And a third fan added, "They're children."

But some royal fans disagree with the 'bad behaviour' being highlighted. One fan tweeted, "The little Princess Charlotte behaved impeccably during her great grandmothers funeral."

And another fan also refuted the claims, "Princess Charlotte's behaviour at the Queens funeral was impeccable, she was a proper little lady, she even looked after Prince George. She is a credit to her parents, and it is evident how supportive she will be to George when he becomes King."

Prince Charlotte and Prince George are reportedly attending King Charles III Coronation (opens in new tab) next year, alongside their parents Prince William and Kate Middleton.
