Why Prince Louis, Princess Charlotte and Prince George are missing from grandpa Charles’ Scottish coronation

On Wednesday, during the Scottish coronation, King Charles and Queen Camilla were accompanied by the Prince and Princess of Wales. 

The royal couple, who are currently in Edinburgh for Holyrood Week, decided not to bring their three children, Prince George (9), Princess Charlotte (8), and Prince Louis (5), as their school commitments prevented them from joining. 

The royal children will commence their summer break on Saturday.

During the May coronation at Westminster Abbey, the royal children captured the affection of the nation by accompanying their parents. 

It was an important day for Prince George, as he played a significant role as one of his grandfather’s pages of honor. Dressed impeccably, he wore a knee-length scarlet coat adorned with gold trimmings, along with white breeches and a white satin waistcoat. 

He also carried a small ceremonial sword. Alongside him were Queen Camilla’s grandsons, 13-year-old twins Gus and Louis Lopes, as well as 13-year-old Freddy Parker Bowles, who were all attired in matching scarlet robes for the occasion.

Meanwhile, Princess Charlotte was seen leading her younger brother, Prince Louis, during the ceremony. Displaying an adorable gesture, Princess Charlotte held Louis’ hand as they made a special appearance at the coronation. 

Later on, they joined their parents in a carriage as part of the procession, accompanying the newly-crowned King and Queen as they departed from Westminster Abbey towards Buckingham Palace. The family then made a joint appearance on the palace balcony.

During the Scottish ceremony, a special service of thanksgiving at St Giles’ Cathedral, King Charles will receive the Honours of Scotland, which are the country’s crown jewels. 

The ceremony will incorporate both long-standing elements of Scottish royal tradition and newly introduced components, including music composed specifically for this occasion. 

Prior to the service, a Royal Procession and a People’s Procession involving approximately 100 individuals will take place along the Royal Mile. 

The Stone of Destiny is anticipated to have a role in the ceremony, and following the event, there will be a fly-past by the Red Arrows.
