Nine-year-old Prince George may be the future king but younger sister Princess Charlotte is at his side keeping him “in line”, a royal expert has suggested. The seven-year-old was spotted reminding her elder brother of an important royal protocol at the state funeral for the late Queen Elizabeth II. The young siblings were standing side-by-side as they attended the funeral along with their parents. Speaking on the latest episode of Royally Us, host Christina Garibaldi recalled a sweet moment when Charlotte “took a moment” to remind George to “take a bow”.
Speaking of the two young royals attending the funeral, Ms Garibaldi said: “Charlotte even took a moment to remind Prince George to take a bow.
“I love that she’s keeping him in line.”
She added that this was a “big moment” for George and Charlotte.
Ms Garibaldi continued: “To be on this world stage like this and also grieving their great-grandmother had to be a really big undertaking for them.”
Her co-host, Christine Ross, said that their mother, who has previously expressed her passion for childhood development, can “support them in the best ways”.
