The behaviour on display from Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis during the Coronation was “absolutely perfect” and shows the future of the monarchy is in safe hands, according to a royal expert.
The trio were spotted in Westminster Abbey before making an appearance on the Buckingham Palace balcony along with the rest of the Royal Family.
George had a particularly key role to play, as the nine-year-old performed his first solo act at a major ceremony as one of the King’s Pages of Honour.
The youngster is second in line to the throne after his father, the Prince of Wales, and he rose to the occasion on Saturday as Charles and the Queen were crowned on a historic day.
Princess Charlotte, Prince George and Prince Louis showed 'perfect' behaviour
According to royal expert Angela Levin, the children showed the future of the monarchy is “safe” as they enjoyed their time in the spotlight.
She told GB News: “One of the highlights is Catherine and William’s children, I thought they behaved absolutely perfectly.
“Prince George suddenly remembered and put his shoulders straight back and he concentrated really hard. Princess Charlotte took on the role of a big sister when holding onto Louis.
“I think they all looked Gorgeous, Louis was marvellous, he was singing God Save the King very loudly.

“I felt that maybe the monarchy is safe in William’s hands and safe in the hands of the next generation, that cheered me up no-end.”
While George took centre stage, his younger siblings, Charlotte, eight, and Prince Louis, five, were sat between Kate and William throughout the ceremony in the front row.
The siblings will eventually be expected to carry out an array of official engagements as adult working members of the Royal Family.
After leaving the abbey, George joined his immediate family in a carriage ride back to Buckingham Palace, riding behind Charles and Camilla’s Gold State Coach.
George was seen smiling and peering curiously out of the window during the journey to get a better view of the procession and crowds along the route.
Later on the Buckingham Palace balcony, a grinning George gazed up as the Red Arrows soared overhead during a military flypast that was scaled down due to the rainy, cloudy weather.
And a father who watched the ceremony in Rochester, Kent, said his children “loved” seeing George play a key role.
Screens had been mounted outside Rochester Castle, where families were encouraged to bring their picnics and watch the coronation service.
