Prince George, Princess Charlotte farewell their ‘Gan Gan’ Queen Elizabeth

The future King, Prince George, and his sister, Princess Charlotte, bid farewell to their beloved “Gan Gan” as the youngest members of the royal family to follow the Queen’s coffin through Westminster Abbey.

The royal siblings, great grandchildren of the Queen, were among 2000 guests at her state funeral, joining their parents, world leaders and national figures from UK.

George, nine, and Princess Charlotte, seven, walked behind the Queen’s coffin as part of a solemn procession past hundreds of guests through the gothic church.

As the young royals followed their great grandmother’s coffin, flanked by their parents, the Prince and Princess of Wales, Charlotte held her hands clasped in front of her while George had his arms by his side.

The foursome walked a little behind King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla, and ahead of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The young royals had arrived earlier in a car with Camilla and their mother, Kate.

George was dressed in a dark navy suit and tie, while Charlotte wore a black coat dress with pleats at the back, black tights and a hat with a ribbon tied at the back.

Ahead of the service, the Princess of Wales could be seen holding Charlotte’s hand, and giving her a reassuring touch on the shoulder.
