Keen observers noticed that Prince Harry and Charlotte shared a heartwarming moment during the service. When Princess Charlotte was seen adjusting her hat before looking over at her uncle, Harry briefly looked up and caught her eye and smiled at his niece.

Charlotte and her brother, Prince George, nine, remained impeccably behaved through a long and solemn day as they bid farewell to their beloved "Gan Gan".

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.

At the committal service in Windsor, TV cameras gave only a few glances of the siblings, who remained well-behaved despite their young age.

Charlotte was seen exchanging a few words with the Dean of Windsor as the family left the chapel and was ushered to a waiting car. Her younger brother, Prince Louis, was not in attendance.
