But the Duchess of Sussex put on a smile for the children, who played key roles in the solemn occasion.

A video clip showed Princess Charlotte, seven, standing next to her mother Kate Middleton and grandmother, Queen Consort Camilla. 

As she stood at Wellington Arch, the young Princess turned around to see what was happening, before catching the eye of her aunt, Meghan.

Meghan, who had looked solemn until catching her niece’s eye, smiled as Charlotte turned back around.

Later in the afternoon during the committal service at St George’s Chapel in Westminster, the young Princess also shared a sweet moment with her uncle, Prince Harry.

As the Dean of Windsor gave a bidding at the end of the service before Her late Majesty was committed to the crypt, Charlotte was seen adjusting her hat.

Princess Charlotte put on a brave face herself today as she attended the funeral of her beloved ‘Gan Gan’ the Queen.

While her older brother Prince George, nine, appeared to become emotional and was seen wiping his eyes, his younger sister remained stoic as a support for her family.

Princess Charlotte appeared to tell Prince George: ‘You need to bow.

Charlotte wore a black mourning coat with velour collar and matching wide-brimmed hat, while George was dressed in a navy blue suit with a black tie.

On Charlotte’s coat was a sweet tribute to her Gan-Gan, as she wore a horseshoe brooch that had been given to her by the late Queen.

But after George and Charlotte attended their great-grandfather’s memorial in March, William and Kate decided they could cope with the solemnity of the occasion.

‘As parents they have, of course, thought long and hard about whether their children should accompany them,’ a source said. ‘Of course little Louis is too young, but they think George and Charlotte are up to it.’

Aged just nine, and having just overcome the daunting prospect of starting a new school, George is now the second in line to the throne.

With this in mind, aides have suggested it would be good for the public to see the young Prince – who affectionately called the Queen ‘Gan Gan’ – and is the future of the Monarchy.

It was the first time any of the Wales children have been seen in public since the Queen’s death on September 8th.
