Royal Kids Pulling Faces At King Charles's Coronation Was The Most Relatable Part Of The Whole Thing
Prince George reacts on the day of coronation of Britain's King Charles and Queen Camilla's coronation ceremony at Westminster Abbey in London, Britain May 6, 2023.
King Charles and Queen Camilla may have been crowned, but it’s Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, eight, and Prince Louis, five, who have stolen the show at the coronation today.
While the adorable children of Prince William and Princess Kate have been on their very best behaviour – and we truly admire just how well behaved they were considering the ceremony lasted two hours – it didn’t stop them from occasionally showing their true feelings.
Here are some of the best photos from the day.

‘Surely this has to be over soon?’

‘Why is this taking so long?’
