Mom came out, tongue out.
Prince George was seen sticking his tongue out at photographers after his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral at Westminster Abbey in London on Monday.
The 9-year-old prince – who is second in line to the British throne behind his father Prince William – was seen in the back seat of a car after the service when he made the silly face for shutters break.
He was joined by his mother, Kate Middleton, his 7-year-old sister, Princess Charlotte, and his step-grandmother, Queen Consort Camilla.
That awkward moment aside, George and his sister were mostly on their best behavior at the late monarch’s funeral.
Attendee Mark Tewksburys said the two eldest children of Prince William and Kate Middleton were “incredibly well-behaved”, adding: “For little Prince George it will be him one day and he doesn’t really know it yet. And then I thought, ‘Ah, he just lost his great-grandmother.’
George and Charlotte were seen walking in the procession ahead of the Queen’s funeral before taking their places for the somber service with their parents. Their 4-year-old brother Prince Louis was not present, possibly due to his young age.
“Look, I was losing weight from being so busy, and…
The little prince and princess seemed to be struggling with the loss of their grandmother, who died on September 8 at the age of 96. George was pictured being comforted by his great-aunt Sophie from Wessex and Charlotte was seen bursting into tears before being comforted by Middleton.
Despite her strong emotions, Charlotte seemed to follow protocol and even helped her older brother follow the rules. She was seen telling George when to bow at the funeral.
Just like his uncle, Prince Harry, at the time, George has a habit of pulling faces at important events. He stole the show with his facial expressions as he attended Wimbledon with his parents.
Charlotte also hilariously corrected George’s posture during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebration in June.
Meanwhile, Charlotte was also seen scolding their little brother Louis after making funny faces during the Jubilee pageant.
George seemed amused by Louis’s antics, perhaps knowing that he had passed on his habit of making faces to his younger brother.
