Prince William and Princess Kate delighted their fans on Easter Sunday by attending church with all three of their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. As the family left St. George's Chapel in Windsor, Prince William and Princess Kate allowed their eldest son George to take the lead in shaking hands with the clergy and thanking him for leading the worship.
Many fans on Twitter were quick to notice this touching moment and praise Prince George's maturity and confidence. One fan wrote, “I think he's starting to realize his place in the RF (Royal Family) and is watching and learning how his parents go about it and knows he has their support. It's great to see how confident he's becoming!”
Others commented on how proud Prince William and Princess Kate looked as they watched their son take on this role. One fan exclaimed, “Look how proudly William and his wife look at their oldest son!! George is growing up so nicely!” Another added, “He is gaining in confidence little by little. It's lovely to see. Can't wait to see him as a page at his Grandpa’s coronation!”
In fact, all three of the Prince and Princess of Wales' children are set to participate in the King's coronation procession from Westminster Abbey back to Buckingham Palace on May 6th. While it was initially reported that only Prince George would have a “significant” role on the day, it has since been confirmed that Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will also take part in the proceedings.
Furthermore, Kensington Palace has announced that Prince George will serve as a page at his grandfather's coronation. Traditionally, Pages of Honour wear a knee-length scarlet coat with gold trimmings over a white satin waistcoat and lace jabot. They also carry a small ceremonial sword, along with white breeches, white stockings, and black shoes with buckles.
While this may seem like a significant role for a nine-year-old, Prince William and Princess Kate took their time to consider whether to allow Prince George to take on an official role. After careful consideration, they have decided that their son is ready to participate in the ceremony.
As the young prince continues to grow and gain confidence, it is clear that he is becoming more comfortable with his role in the Royal Family. Fans can't wait to see what the future holds for Prince George as he continues to take on more significant responsibilities within the monarchy.
