Royal fans praise Princess Charlotte’s composure at historic coronation: ‘She looks so regal’
Fans have praised Princess Charlotte for her poise and style at the coronation of her grandfather, King Charles III, and her step-grandmother, Queen Consort Camilla.
The only daughter of the Prince and Princess of Wales is being accompanied by her parents and younger brother Prince Louis as they watch Charles and Camilla being crowned in Westminster Abbey today.
Many viewers have noted a sweet moment between eight-year-old Charlotte and five-year-old Louis, as they held hands behind their parents while waiting to be seated in the Abbey. Meanwhile, Prince George, the eldest of the Waleses’ children, is a Page of Honour for the King.
The young princess wore an ivory silk crepe dress and cape designed by Alexander McQueen and accessorised with a silver bullion, crystal and silver thread headpiece that matches Kate Middleton’s own “tiara”.
The tiaras were also designed by Alexander McQueen and milliner Jess Collett.
On social media, fans gushed over Charlotte’s calm demeanour. She is sat next to Louis and was photographed talking her younger brother through the order of service.
“Princess Charlotte looks so regal,” one person declared, while another described her as looking “elegant”.
“Princess Charlotte is STUNNING! Perfect outfit for her and I love how her headpiece matches Princess Catherine! Charlotte is perfection! And Louis too!” a third wrote on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Louis has stolen the show once again after he was seen yawning and fidgeting during the early parts of the ceremony.
The young prince earned a smile from his mother even as he struggled so sit still. He also stole the hearts of royal fans when he waved to them from inside a carriage during the journey to Westminster Abbey.
Last year, Louis became an internet star during his late great-grandmother’s platinum jubilee celebrations, when he pulled faces while watching the flypast on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
