She was seen pointing forcefully towards her older brother as she made sure he was aware of what was expected of him.

While microphones were not nearby, consensus suggested she had told him "you need to bow" as the Queen's coffin was taken past.

George then appears to acknowledge her before looking back to his feet.

The funeral procession left Westminster Abbey earlier on Monday to travel west to Windsor, where she spent so much of her time.

He was seen shedding a tear as he said the final farewell to his "Gan-Gan".

Kate stepped in to console him, resting a hand on his knee.

The late addition of George and Charlotte is believed to have been an idea from their parents, who believed it would be important for them to attend the historic funeral.
