The pair were filmed exchanging words as they waited for the coffin to be placed onto the royal hearse, where Charlotte can clearly be seen saying: "You need to bow" to George, who appears to be listening to his sister intently.

The second-in-line to the throne did indeed bow as the coffin passed the pair, and viewers took to Twitter to praise the sweet exchange between the brother and sister. One person wrote: "They can add levity to the most solemn of moments. Her telling her older brother what to do, is just cute," while another person added: "I’m pleased they have each other to lean on for support and will look back on this in future glad they took part in it together."
