Charlotte asked George whether Queen’s coffin ‘will slip out’, lip reader says

Princess Charlotte and Prince George have been praised for their stoic attitude at the Queen's funeral today – but one moment still confused the younger royal.

The royals stayed next to their mum, Kate Middleton, and dad Prince William, at Wellington Arch as they watched the bearer party lift their beloved great-grandmother's coffin from the gun carriage.

The Grenadier Guards approached the carriage, placed their hands under the flag and unlocked the harness before taking the coffin out.

Jeremy Freeman, who analysed the siblings' on-camera exchange, told Daily Star that Charlotte was "curious" about the way the soldiers handled her beloved "Gan Gan's" coffin.

According to Jeremy, Charlotte asked George: "What’s under there? Is it so she doesn’t slip out?"

The seven-year-old princess was previously seen being "told off " by her step-grandmother Camilla after she apparently got "pinched" by her brother.

She was spotted saying "ow" out loud while standing in a queue next to Camilla.

Charlotte later got emotional over the sombre scenes.
