Royal fans are eagerly awaiting the next time Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven, and Prince Louis, four, will step into the spotlight after their attendance was confirmed at King Charles III's coronation

It is understood that the Prince and Princess of Wales' children will accompany the King and Queen Consort Camilla as they leave Westminster Abbey following the service on Saturday 6 May. The milestone occasion marks a first in royal tradition for the grandchildren of a monarch, who have historically played no active role in a coronation.

Luckily, the Wales children are well versed in being front-and-centre of the royal spotlight. Relive the joyous moment they were part of the procession at the late Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June last year in the clip below…

The crowning of King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla could also see a major moment for Princess Charlotte - who could be offered the opportunity to wear her first tiara. Traditionally, the wearing of a tiara is a privilege reserved exclusively for married royal women.

Will Princess Charlotte wear a tiara at King Charles III's coronation?

The first time a royal lady wears a tiara is usually her wedding day, which includes Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Princess Kate and Meghan Markle. Princess Anne and Princess Marget, however, were not afraid to break the mould of royal etiquette.

Anne – the monarch's only daughter – first wore a tiara at the tender age of 17, and again for her 21st birthday picture. This might be a tradition Charlotte follows, choosing to debut her first tiara in a portrait to commemorate a landmark moment, such as her 18th or 21st.
