Prince George and Princess Charlotte appeared in high spirits as they joined their parents The Prince and Princess of Wales at the star-studded Coronation concert this evening.

The young royals were well-dressed as they attended the musical extravaganza in Windsor, alongside other Royal Family members, including the King and Queen, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and Zara Tindall.

Take That, Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and others will be taking to the stage at the castle following the King’s Coronation yesterday.

It comes amidst a busy weekend for the little royals, who all played a starring role in the Coronation yesterday to watch their grandfather being crowned King.

Prince George, nine, was selected as one of the monarch’s Pages of Honour, while Charlotte, eight, took a protective and reassuring role with her younger brother Louis, five, at the event. 

Charlotte was seen sitting alongside her little brother in a royal car with their parents after leaving the palace in the morning, and in the front row of the Abbey a short time later. 

She wore an Alexander McQueen dress and cape in ivory silk crepe with ivory stitch embroidery featuring rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock motifs, to signify the four nations. 

She also wore a Jess Collett x Alexander McQueen Headpiece silver bullion, crystal and silver thread work, similar to the headpiece the Princess of Wales wore for the occasion. 

Meanwhile she held hands with her cheeky little brother during the opening moments of the historic service.

They were immaculately behaved during the service, with Charlotte proving a reassuring presence to her younger brother, who couldn’t help stifle a few yawns during the sacred service.

George, Charlotte and Louis were reunited after the service when they rode away from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace in a carriage with their parents.

The trio later appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with their parents, their newly crowned grandparents The King and Queen and the other working royals. During this appearance, Charlotte could be seen sharing a giggle with her youngest brother. 

More than 18 million people in the UK tuned in to watch the ceremony on TV, compared with 26.5 million for the late Queen’s funeral in September.

Today’s concert came after Buckingham Palace issued the first public statement on behalf of Charles and Camilla since they were crowned.

A Palace spokesman said the King and Queen were ‘profoundly grateful’ for all those involved in organising the celebrations and ceremony, and the spectators who attended the day.

‘Their Majesties were deeply touched by the events of yesterday and profoundly grateful both to all those who helped to make it such a glorious occasion – and to the very many who turned out to show their support in such numbers in London and further afield,’ he said.

The King, Queen and royal family have joined around 20,000 members of the public at the musical extravaganza.

Heir to the throne William is to take to the stage to deliver a speech during the event in the grounds of Windsor Castle, with Kensington Palace sharing behind-the-scenes footage of the prince during rehearsals.

The show, hosted by Downton Abbey and Paddington actor Hugh Bonneville, will see Hollywood star Tom Cruise, Dynasty actress Dame Joan Collins, adventurer Bear Grylls and singer Sir Tom Jones appear via video message.
