"Jesus Christ, that hand posture when moving her hair back!! She is not even 10 yet and she is already iconic," one royal fan tweeted. "You can tell who's the boss between the three siblings She's just adorable," another quipped. "Charlotte's adorable and for such a young girl, she always knows her royal etiquette and how to behave," someone else offered. "Just as mommy does it. She's going to be a great asset to the BRF. Like a little Anne with the natural glamour of Kate," another chimed in.

This is not the first time Charlotte has been seen performing the grown-up gesture in recent years. In 2019, the then-four-year-old princess flicked her hair in a similar way when she arrived at Thomas's Battersea in South London for her first day of school.

That said, Queen Elizabeth II's funeral marked Charlotte's highest profile appearance to date. She seemed pensive and in a reflective mood as she attended the historic occasion. The late monarch made her final journey from Westminster Hall as Britain mourned its longest-serving sovereign, while senior royal royals bade farewell to a devoted mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Kate, the Princess of Wales, provided a reassuring presence for her children throughout the proceedings, holding onto her daughter's hand as the family arrived at Westminster Abbey.

Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor was born in Bruton Street, Mayfair, London on 21 April 1926. She married Prince Philip in 1947 and ascended the throne of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth on 6 February 1952 after the death of her Father, King George VI. Queen Elizabeth II died at Balmoral Castle in Scotland on September 8, 2022, and is succeeded by her eldest son, King Charles III.

Princess Charlotte matched her mother's ensemble with an all-black mourning coat with a velour collar and a wide-brimmed hat. Meanwhile, George looked dapper in a navy blue suit coupled with a black tie. It's worth noting that the prince appeared mature beyond his years, paying attention to the history of the solemn occasion and waiting patiently as his father William arrived at the abbey after walking behind the Queen's coffin. In a moment of levity, Charlotte was seen giving her older brother a lesson in royal protocol amid the Queen's final send-off.

The princess was seen telling her brother, "You need to bow," as their great-grandmother's casket passed in front of the young royals. George appeared to follow his sister's instruction at once, lowering his head as the monarch's coffin passed him.

Earlier, the Prince and Princess of Wales were reportedly mulling whether to bring their two eldest children to the procession and service, especially after both had attended the funeral of their great grandfather Prince Consort Prince Philip in 2021. They finally decided to bring them both. George came along after senior palace advisers said it would send a powerful symbolic message about The Firm's future.

It's intriguing to note that the young prince is now second in the line of succession, after having recently started a new school. Prince Louis, 4, was likely deemed too young to attend the funeral. A source previously told the Daily Mail, "As parents, they have, of course, thought long and hard about whether their children should accompany them. Of course, little Louis is too young, but they think George and Charlotte are up to it."
