A lip reader has shared the sweet comment Princess Charlotte made to Prince George at the Queen's State Funeral yesterday (19 September).

The two young royals were widely praised yesterday after they bravely walked behind their great-grandmother's coffin into Westminster Abbey.

However, Princess Charlotte, seven, appeared to be more than aware of the momentous nature of the day, and she was captured not only bursting into tears, but reminding her older brother, Prince George, of protocol.

As the late Queen's coffin passed, she was seen reminding George: "You need to bow."

This is something that the pair both went on to to do, but it was far from the only moment of politeness from the pair at the funeral.

As reported by OK! Magazine, Prince George and Princess Charlotte were stopped when they entered the Abbey with their mother, the Princess of Wales.

Lip reader Jeremy Freeman concluded that Charlotte said to the adults: "Pleasure to meet you."

Her brother, meanwhile, replied: "Good morning."

The pair went on to bravely walk behind the Queen's coffin, with George placing his hands by his sides and Charlotte clasping hers in front of her.

Prince Louis, four, meanwhile, did not attend the funeral.

Queen Elizabeth II passed away on 8 September at her home in Balmoral, Scotland, at the age of 96.

She was Britain's longest reigning monarch.

The Princess of Wales said that Prince George is 'sort of now realising how important his great-grandmother was and what is going on.'

She also opened up about Prince Louis' reaction to his great-grandmother's death - an event that he does not yet fully comprehend because of his young age.

The Princess of Wales said: "The younger one is now asking questions like, 'do you think we can still play these games when we go to Balmoral and things like that, cause she's not going to be there?'"

She shared Prince Louis' sweet comments about the late Queen to a well-wisher too, revealing that he said: "At least Grannie is with Great-Grandpa now".

The Queen was ultimately laid to rest at St George's Chapel in Windsor alongside her husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, who died in April last year at the age of 99.

The Queen's parents, George VI and the Queen Mother, as well as her sister, Princess Margaret, who was cremated, are all resting there too.
