Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis 'given coronation roles' alongside Prince George

·2-min read

King Charles III's coronation is just around the corner and while we're busy planning our street party (erm, we just want an excuse to eat cake and drink Pimm's tbh), the Royal Family are no doubt preparing for their roles in the history-making event.

Of course, all eyes will be on King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla for the most part, but their relatives will have the chance to steal the limelight here and there. As heir to the throne, Prince William will have a key role in the coronation ceremony and his son, Prince George, is expected to as well – which will be a break from tradition.

Now, it seems that Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will also have a part to play in the coronation, despite previous reports saying they would attend as onlookers only.

According to The Times, all three of the Prince and Princess of Wales' children will take part in the King’s coronation procession at Westminster Abbey. Plans show that George, Charlotte and Louis are all set to join their grandfather and step-grandmother as they leave the abbey at the end of the ceremony on 6 May, the newspaper reports.

Joining the procession wouldn't be an unfamiliar experience for George and Charlotte, who became the youngest royals to ever take part in one when they did so for Queen Elizabeth II's funeral last year. At the time, Louis was considered too young to join his siblings, but that decision may well have changed by May.

As for whether Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's children will have a role to play in the ceremony, that remains to be seen. Earlier this month, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed they had received a 'save the date' email about the coronation, but the pair are yet to confirm if they – or their children – will attend.
