Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis both played a big part in the coronation on Saturday, and while their mum Princess Kate had revealed they were feeling a bit nervous ahead of the special day, they showed no sign of apprehension when they made their way to Westminster Abbey.

A behind-the-scenes video shared by the Prince and Princess of Wales from the coronation showed the family leaving their Kensington Palace home ahead of the ceremony, and the sweet footage reveals Charlotte and Louis' smiles of excitement as they walked out of the door and made their way to their car. See their reactions in the video below…

After showing the family leaving their London home, the video then shifts focus to the many military personnel that worked on the day before showing the golden state carriage carrying King Charles and Queen Camilla, alongside a separate carriage with William, Kate and their three children.
