Kate comforts and reassures nervous Princess Charlotte during great-grandmother’s funeral

September 19, 2022

Kate Middleton was seen sweetly comforting daughter Princess Charlotte at her great-grandmother the Queen's funeral on Monday 19 September.

The Princess of Wales, 40, was joined by her daughter, seven, and son Prince George, nine, at the Westminster Abbey service.

In one sweet moment, Kate was seen comforting a nervous Princess Charlotte as she stood with Prince George and Meghan Markle.

The Princess of Wales was also seen putting a reassuring hand on her daughter's back when they exited their car ahead of the service and held hands walking into Westminster Abbey.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte travelled to Westminster Abbey in the same car as the Queen Consort, with the Princess of Wales arriving with them.


Prince George and Princess Charlotte walked in between their parents behind the Queen’s coffin as part of a solemn procession through Westminster Abbey.

As the young royals walked behind their great-grandmother's coffin, Charlotte held her hands clasped in front of her while George had his arms by his side.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte are both dressed respectfully in dark attire. Charlotte has worn a black hat that sweetly matches her mum's choice of headwear while George is smartly dressed in a navy suit.


Their brother Prince Louis, four, is not attending. There is no official rule on what age royal family members can attend a funeral, but it is likely he has been considered too young for the service.

Kate shared with a well-wisher during a walkabout that sweet Louis told her, "At least Grannie is with great grandpa now."

Although, Kate explained that Prince Louis is "struggling to understand" Gan Gan's death.

Governor-General of Australia David Hurley explained that the Princess told him how her children were taking their great-grandmother's death.

While Prince George is "sort of now realising how important his great-grandmother was and what is going on", Prince Louis doesn't completely understand.

Hurley said: "The younger one is now asking questions like, 'do you think we can still play these games when we go to Balmoral' and things like that, because she's not going to be there?"
