Prince William and Kate Middleton’s three children are all expected to take part in the procession from Westminster Abbey which will follow the King’s coronation on May 6, according to new leaked plans.
Leaked plans reveal that Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven, and Prince Louis, four, are likely to accompany the King and Queen Consort as they leave the Abbey after the service, the Times reports.
The three siblings are expected to join their parents in a carriage behind King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla, who will travel in the Golden State Coach as they return to Buckingham Palace from Westminster Abbey.
This won't be the first time George and Charlotte attend a royal event as they attended their great grandmother the Queen’s state funeral at Westminster Abbey in September, making them the youngest royals in history to publicly attend a funeral.
Prince Louis was not present and is thought to have been considered too young to attend the service with his parents William and Kate.
The publication also reported that current coronation rehearsal plans do not suggest Prince Harry and Meghan Markle or the Duke of York are expected to take part in the procession.
According to the leaked plans, Harry and Meghan’s children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, are not believed to have been invited to the coronation.
The date of the coronation falls on Archie’s fourth birthday. Lilibet turns two on 4 June.
Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie will not be in the procession either, according to the documents.
Buckingham Palace has said the carriage procession after the Coronation will be significantly smaller, and shorter, than the procession after Queen Elizabeth's coronation.
However, the palace has insisted it will be "amazing in both scale and splendour".
While the late Queen's eldest son officially became Monarch the moment she passed away at 3.10pm on September 8 last year, the Coronation will celebrate the beginning of his reign. His wife Queen Camilla will also be coronated.
The Prince and Princess of Wales' three children delighted crowds when they showcased their royal waves as they celebrated their great-grandmother the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee last year.
They made an appearance on the palace balcony for the flypast which prompted some comical reactions from Louis who held his hands over his ears, probably due to the roar of the aircraft overhead.
Louis also shared a sweet moment with his grandpa when he sat on Charles’ lap during the Jubilee Pageant as the parade passed by the royal box on the final day of the celebrations.
