A photo of Princess Charlotte in which she appears to be crying heartbroken began to go viral on social media in royal fan groups.
Princess Charlotte, 7, along with her brother Prince George, 9, became the most prominent members of Queen Elizabeth II’s impressive funeral.
The children of the Prince and Princess of Wales, William and Kate accompanied their parents to Windsor Castle for the last farewell of the monarch who died on September 8 at the age of 96 at Balmoral Castle.
Both Kate and William thought until the last moment if it was a good idea for their children to attend until, finally, the children also fulfilled the historic commitment.
The Prince and Princess of Wales arrived by car accompanied by their mother, Kate Middleton and Queen Camilla, who have been in charge of arriving with the two little ones, who have dressed in mourning as appropriate on this occasion.
George wore a navy blue suit with a black tie, while his sister Charlotte wore a black coat with pleated back, very much in the style of his mother that combined with a black hat which had a black ribbon. But the accessory that people liked the most was the brooch in the shape of a horseshoe that she wore on the left side of her coat.
It is a jewel made of diamonds, a nice tribute that Charlotte wanted to make to her beloved ‘Gan Gan’, as she affectionately called her great-grandmother. In addition, the brooch was a gift from the monarch to her great-granddaughter, according to the Daily Mail.
Was Princess Charlotte crying at the funeral?
Something that really caught the attention and worried many netizens was a photo of Princess Charlotte where she appeared to be crying at the Queen’s funeral.
In the image, Kate and William’s daughter can be seen with her hands on her face, as if rubbing her eyes.
Although it could not be confirmed whether Princess Charlotte was crying or feeling uncomfortable or tired.
Comments on the networks could be read such as, “How sad to see Princess Eleanor crying at her great-grandmother’s funeral.”
While other royal watchers believed Charlotte just had something in her eye. “I think she was rubbing her eye. She looked fine in all the other photos.”
The one who did fail to contain her emotions was Meghan Markle as she was captured crying as the Queen’s coffin passed in front of her.
