Kate and William’s three children have not made any public appearance since the Queen’s death on September 8.
The idea of George attending the ceremony like a funeral at such a young age would be a tough decision for his parents Kate and William. But, in recent years, the couple has introduced their three kids to many Royal family celebrations and customs.
In April, Prince George and Princess Charlotte attended the Easter Sunday church service at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle for the first time. And, during Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, the three kids joined the family during their first ever royal carriage procession.
In July, Prince George made his debut at a tennis tournament, as he attended the Wimbledon men’s singles final with his father and mother.
Now in the line of succession, after Charles becomes the king, his eldest son Prince William is the new heir to the throne. With this, the Prince and his wife Kate have been bestowed with new responsibilities. Over the years, both William and Kate have been one of the most responsible royal members who have never shied away from their duties, but at the same time, they have also made sure to provide their children with a ‘normal’ life away from the media glare.
