The seven-year-old wore a hat for the first time

As Her Majesty's coffin made its way past them, little Charlotte glanced at Sophie before sweetly mimicking her curtsy.

This isn't the first time Princess Charlotte was spotted emulating members of her family. And many royal fans were quick to spot the endearing moment Charlotte copied her mother's signature hair flip.

Between the two funeral services, photographers took a great image of Charlotte gently flicking her blonde hair behind her ears, much in the same way Princess Kate does with her luscious brunette tresses.

The young royal mimicked members of her family

Princess Charlotte was among 2,000 guests at the Queen's moving state funeral. Members of the royal family united in grief to pay their respects to the late monarch who reigned for an impressive 70 years.

At the committal service at Windsor Castle's St. George's Chapel in the afternoon, George and Charlotte were joined by fellow royal children, Mia Tindall, daughter of Zara and Mike Tindall, and Savannah and Isla Phillips, daughters of Peter Phillips.

Following the service, an intimate burial service took place at 7.30pm to allow members of the royal family to mourn in private and say their final goodbyes. The Queen was subsequently laid to rest in the King George VI memorial chapel in Windsor.

She will be poignantly reunited with her late husband Prince Philip who will be moved from the Royal Vault of St George's Chapel to the King George VI Memorial Chapel.
