All eyes were on Charlotte as she first entered Westminster Abbey. Wearing her black Ancar coat, little shoes and of course, her hat that she chose as a mark of respect, just like her mother's, it was a lovely sight to see. Many also loved the fact she wore a stunning diamond brooch in the shape of a horseshoe pinned to her left lapel - a nod to the monarch who adored horses.

The royal siblings, great-grandchildren of the Queen, were among 2,000 guests at her state funeral and were the youngest members of the royal family to follow the Queen's coffin through Westminster Abbey.

As the young royals followed their great-grandmother's coffin, flanked by their parents, Charlotte held her hands clasped in front of her, while George had his arms by his side
