I whispered to Princess Charlotte at the memorial service
On March 29, 2022, the British royal family and Europe’s royal elite paid tribute to the late Prince Philip for the last time. Princess Charlotte was there, too. But the little boy was very nervous.
It came as no surprise that Prince William, 39, and Duchess Catherine, 40, attended the memorial service for Prince Philip, 99. But no one expected them to take two of their three children with them, Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 6!
Duchess Catherine relieves Charlotte’s stress
The Cambridge family allowed themselves to be photographed side by side by several photographers in front of Westminster Abbey. While George has been able to storm the flash in many appearances with his parents in recent months, the high interest in his sister is sometimes still new territory. How good it was that Mama Kate was always close to Charlotte.
As reported by Britain’s Mirror and Daily Mail, Princess Charlotte was said to have looked nervous after the convent invasion and looked around with a serious facial expression. Duchess Catherine noticed that, too. According to lip singer Jackie Press, Kate whispered to her daughter in an unnoticed moment “You can smile.” Lo and behold: Charlotte immediately relaxed.
During the BBC live broadcast, the little princess looked more relaxed and when she and her mother met the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, after the ceremony, she skillfully played her charms and smiled widely. Shaking hands like her parents is no longer a problem for Charlotte.
“The life of the Duke of Edinburgh was celebrated alongside members of the royal family and guests,” Kate and William wrote on Instagram shortly after the ceremony, emphasizing: “Serving and honoring his commitment to the family, the nation and the Commonwealth demonstrated the importance of his legacy in creating opportunities for young people and promoting environmental protection. maintain and support the armed forces.
Nobles from all over the world bid farewell to Prince Philip
For a long time it was not certain whether Queen Elizabeth, 95, would attend the ceremony. But the Queen appeared in London at her side: Prince Andrew, 62. The great surprise was that the Queen was accompanied by her disgraced son to Westminster Abbey. Royal experts doubt a touching gesture behind this. “It shows that she loves and believes in her son with all her heart,” author Robert Jobson says, emphasizing, “She believes in Andrew.”
