The Prince and Princess of Wales’ two eldest children participated in a procession with other members of the royal family as the coffin entered Westminster Abbey in London.
With the publication of the event’s order of service on Sunday night, Buckingham Palace officially acknowledged their participation. The two Cambridge children, who are second and third in line for the British throne, were mentioned in the programme as being part of the royal procession that followed the Queen’s coffin.
Along with more than 500 dignitaries from across the world, George, 9, and Charlotte, 7, along with their parents Prince William and Catherine, Princess of Wales, are grieving the passing of Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, who passed away on September 8 at the age of 96.
The children followed the casket in front of their uncle and aunt, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and behind their parents.
Their younger brother Prince Louis, who is 4 years old, will not be present for the burial.
More than 2,000 people are anticipated to attend the service, which will feature Bible readings, classic songs, and a sermon by Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury.
