The Prince and Princess of Wales's children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, have arrived at their grandfather King Charles's coronation. It was incredibly special for the royal children to take part in the occasion. Here are all the best photographs of the royal children from the day.
William and Kate's children were pictured as they made their way into Westminster Abbey for the service and there were some really heartwarming moments. It has been a big day for nine-year-old Prince George, who has a major role as one of his grandfather's pages of honour. Prince George looked the part as he wore a knee-length scarlet coat with gold trimmings.
The eldest son of Prince William and Kate completed his regal outfit with white breeches, a white satin waistcoat and carried a small ceremonial sword. He joined Queen Camilla's grandsons, 13-year-old twins Gus and Louis Lopes, and 13-year-old Freddy Parker Bowles, who were wearing matching scarlet robes for the occasion. They looked sweet as they posed together outside Westminster Abbey.

Elsewhere during the ceremony, Princess Charlotte, eight, could be seen leading the way with her younger brother Prince Louis. Princess Charlotte sweetly held Louis' hand as they made a special appearance at the coronation.
Dressed in white, the princess looked regal in her gorgeous floral-inspired headpiece that perfectly matched her mum Princess Kate's headpiece. The eight-year-old also wore an Alexander McQueen dress – with a cape – in ivory silk crepe. The royal children followed their mum and dad, Princess Kate and Prince William when they made their enchanting entrance.

The family-of-five left in a carriage as part of the procession as the newly-crowned King and Queen leave Westminster Abbey for Buckingham Palace. The King’s Coronation Procession stretches to just 1.3 miles – around a quarter of the length of the late Queen’s five-mile celebratory journey.
Thousands of members of the armed forces will take part on the day of the coronation – the largest military ceremonial operation for 70 years – staging gun salutes and a flypast, and parading in the processions.
Charles and Camilla will receive a royal salute from the military in the palace gardens at 1.45pm. This will be followed by a balcony moment when the couple will be joined by other members of the royal family to watch a flypast at around 2.15pm.
What you need to know about George, Charlotte and Louis
Prince William and Kate's eldest child Prince George Alexander Louis was born at the Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital on 22 July 2013. The Prince is second-in-line to the throne and will one day be King. In recent years, George has made more public appearances at major royal events and has joined his parents on public engagements.
His younger siblings, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, born in 2015 and 2018 respectively, are third and fourth in line to the throne and are likely to carry out royal duties in future too. Like their elder brother, the young royals were also born at the Lindo Wing.

The Wales family reside at Adelaide Cottage, having moved to Windsor in summer 2022. Prior to that, their official residence was Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace in London. The family-of-five typically spend weekends and school holidays at their country abode, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk.
Following the move, the children enrolled at Lambrook school in Berkshire last September. George and Charlotte were previously pupils at Thomas's school in Battersea, while Louis attended Willcocks Nursery School in Kensington.
Charlotte became the first female royal to benefit from The Succession to the Crown Act (2013), which states that girls will not be overtaken by younger brothers. She made history when her younger brother Louis was born in 2018, as she retained her place in the line of succession.
George, Charlotte and Louis are largely growing up out of the public eye, but attend royal occasions such as Trooping the Colour, the Easter Sunday and Christmas church services, and of course, last year's Platinum Jubilee events.
