Others noted he looked particularly like his father, the Prince of Wales, 40, with one tweeting: ‘George looks so much like William. The future if the Monarchy is exciting.’

Another messaged: ‘George is spitting image of Will, with a touch of Diana‚Äôs eyes.’

A third wrote: ‘Charlotte and George resemble each other and look like William.’

Kate Middleton allowed her children Prince George and Princess Charlotte to have a last-minute extra role in the funeral of their beloved  ‘Gan Gan’ as they walked behind her coffin.

After the children attended Her late Majesty’s funeral at Westminster Abbey in London, they travelled with their mother Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, to St George’s Chapel in Windsor for a Committal Service, where the Queen was laid to rest.

Many royal fans expected Prince George, nine, and Princess Charlotte, seven, not to have a role in the Committal Service, however they were pictured walking into the Chapel behind Her Majesty’s coffin. 

The children’s inclusion in the service appears to be a last-minute decision from their parents Kate Middleton and Prince William, The Mirror reports. 

It was difficult to spot the miniature royals as they walked behind the adult members of the Royal Family before the Committal Service, but the young Prince and Princess dutifully followed their great-grandmother’s coffin as it was led into the chapel.

Earlier today Prince George and Princess Charlotte of Wales stood in the front row at Westminster Abbey as they sang hymns while standing with their parents at the state funeral of Her late Majesty.  

The Princess of Wales, 40, provided a reassuring presence throughout, tightly holding onto her daughter’s hand at the family arrived at Westminster Abbey – and offering a pat on the knee to her eldest son as the family were seated ahead of the service.

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. 

Prince George appeared to become emotional as he was pictured wiping his eyes outside Westminster Abbey, while his younger sister put on a brave face.
