 Prince George and Princess Charlotte shared an adorable sibling moment as their father, the Prince of Wales, took to the stage during the coronation concert at Windsor Castle on Sunday night. 

The royal siblings were in the audience, sitting alongside their parents, Prince William and the Princess of Wales, in the royal box as various music stars took to the stage to mark the coronation of King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla.

As William walked onto the stage, Charlotte, 8, turned to her brother George, 9, and pointed towards their father. Watch the sweet moment in the video below.

The dad-of-two paid tribute to his own father, King Charles, in his emotional message. "For all that celebrations are magnificent, at the heart of the pageantry is a simple message: Service," he said. 

"My father’s first words on entering Westminster Abbey yesterday were a pledge of service. It was a pledge to continue to serve. Because for over 50 years, in every corner of the UK, across the Commonwealth and around the world, he has dedicated himself to serve others, both current and future generations, and those whose memory must not be neglected.

"Take the natural world. He warned us of the risks to our planet’s health long before it was an everyday issue. Or the Prince’s Trust. It has supported over a million young people, many from disadvantaged backgrounds, to realise their ambitions.

“And, perhaps most importantly of all, my father has always understood that people of all faiths, all backgrounds, and all communities, deserve to be celebrated and supported. Pa, we are all so proud of you."

It was a big day for Prince George, who had a very special role to play as one of his grandfather's pages of honour. The nine-year-old, who wore a knee-length scarlet coat with gold trimmings and a white satin waistcoat, carried a corner of the long train of his grandfather's regal robes as Charles entered the Abbey, before taking his seat along with his fellow pages behind Charles.

George's father, Prince William, also played a special part in the service, performing his ceremonial duties before his father. The King looked touched as his eldest son, Prince William, approached him after he was crowned, reciting: "I, William, Prince of Wales, pledge my loyalty to you and faith and truth I will bear unto you, as your liege man of life and limb. So help me God." The father-of-three then bent down to kiss King Charles in an emotional moment.
