Despite being just seven years old, Princess Charlotte knew exactly what was expected of her and older brother Prince George amid the height of royal pageantry.

Being the two youngest attendees of their great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on Monday, the children were accompanied by their parents Prince William and Catherine, Princess of Wales.

Eagle-eyed royal fans noticed an interaction between the siblings when the Queen’s coffin was being transferred to the State Hearse at Wellington Arch in London.

The young princess mouthed something to her brother, which lip-reading experts believe was, “You need to bow,” according to The Sun.

After the reminder from his younger sister, Prince George, did not miss a beat and bowed his head.

Prince William and Princess Kate made the decision not to bring their youngest child Louis, four, due to his young age.

The behaviour of George and Charlotte has been commended through the long and emotionally taxing day.

“I love that Princess Charlotte did her own curtesy and wasn’t looking at the Princess of Wales. She knows. And her reminding Prince George when to bow! The Royal Family is in good hands,” one tweet said.

“How well behaved they were. So proud of them,” another added.

A third message said: “How sweetly Princess Charlotte curtsied on her own. Their behavior was exemplary.”

Princess Charlotte’s sweet prompt to her brother to bow occurred soon before she was pictured sobbing as she watched the Queen’s coffin being transferred from a gun carriage to the hearse at Wellington Arch.

And while the two children remained stoic during the service, it’s clear the emotion and intensity of the sad day finally caught up with Charlotte.

Princess Kate was pictured comforting the little girl as the tears flowed.

Earlier, Prince George was pictured wiping his eyes at Westminster Abbey during the sombre funeral service.

George and Charlotte had walked side by side with their parents as the Queen’s coffin was carried by pallbearers into the abbey.

During the Queen’s funeral, some noted that George appeared to be fighting back tears.

Royal commentator Victoria Arbiter told 7NEWS.com.au that William and Kate wouldn’t have taken lightly the decision to allow their eldest children to attend the funeral.

“This was a big decision,” Arbiter said.

“This is biggest role of George and Charlotte’s public life to date, thus far.”

After the funeral, the Queen’s flag-draped casket was pulled by sailors through London’s streets on a gun carriage in one of the largest military processions seen in the UK, involving thousands of members of the armed forces dressed in ceremonial finery.

They walked in step to funeral music from marching bands while in the background the city’s famous Big Ben tolled each minute.

King Charles and other senior royals followed on foot.

The casket was taken from Westminster Abbey to Wellington Arch and transferred to a hearse to travel to Windsor, where more big crowds waited patiently.

The Queen’s coffin was then transferred into St George’s Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle for a committal ceremony.

In perhaps the most moving moment of the entire day, the Imperial State Crown and the sovereign’s orb and sceptre were removed from the coffin and placed on the altar – separating the Queen from her crown for the last time.

Queen Elizabeth’s coffin was then slowly lowered into the royal vault through an opening in the chapel’s floor as a stricken King Charles looked on.
