All eyes were on the royal family as King Charles’ coronation got underway at Westminster Abbey in London on Saturday. And one detail in particular sent fans wild online, with the youngest of the royals stealing the spotlight on the day.
Princess Charlotte, who turned eight this week, was snapped at the entrance of the Abbey, offering a reassuring hand to her five-year-old brother, Prince Louis, who looked slightly overwhelmed by the pomp and pageantry of the day.
Dressed in a glittering Alexander McQueen banded headpiece and matching her mother, the Princess Of Wales, in an ivory silk crepe dress by the same design house, Princess Charlotte held on tight to her little brother’s hand and led him down the aisle.
“What a beautiful sight. I wish all the Wales children a brotherly love as deep as the one between King Charles and Princess Anne,” one royal fan said online.
“Dying with Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis,” another person wrote, while another fan simply said: “How sweet”.
“Always the doting sister, Princess Charlotte looks incredibly adorable,” a Twitter user said.
Earlier in the day, Charlotte and Louis has been snapped peering out the window of their car as they made their way to the Abbey behind King Charles’ carriage.
The pair’s nine-year-old brother, Prince George, acted as a page of honour for his grandfather, King Charles II, on the day, carrying a corner of the King’s robe as he made his way up the aisle at Westminster Abbey.
Looking adorable in a smart black and red long coat and matching trousers, George sat pride of place behind the King during the ceremony.
The King and Queen Consort were crowned at Westminster Abbey at 11am, in the first Coronation Service for nearly 70 years.
After the service, the royal family will return to Buckingham Palace in a larger ceremonial procession, known as ‘The Coronation Procession’.
Upon returning, The King and The Queen Consort will receive a royal salute in the garden of Buckingham Palace from the Armed Forces taking part in the processions on the day.
The King and Queen Consort, accompanied by members of the royal family, will then appear on the balcony for the flypast and the conclusion of the day’s ceremonial events.
