Prince George sticks his tongue out at the crowd at the Queen’s funeral

Prince George donned a Prince Louis during the funeral of his late great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth on Monday.

The 9-year-old son of Prince William and Kate Middleton stuck his tongue out and made a funny face en route to Windsor Castle – not unlike his 4-year-old brother, who put on a show at the Queen’s Jubilee.

Photographer Matt White took the sweet snap, showing George sitting next to his younger sister, Princess Charlotte, as they rode in a car.

“I had seen Prince George and Kate drive by and took a picture of their car but it was a very quick photo so I didn’t think it would be that good,” White told the Daily Mail.

The photos were taken as the royal family left for the Queen’s funeral service in Windsor after their funeral service at Westminster Abbey. George and Charlotte, 7, joined senior royals throughout the funeral procession, following the monarch’s coffin.

“I didn’t realize until later, when I looked through the photos, that George pulled that face,” White added.

“It was quite fun to snap a picture of him – especially as he is now second in line to the throne and his brother has done the same [Platinum] Jubilee,” White added, citing Prince Louis’ antics in June.

After the Queen’s death on September 8, Prince William, 40, became Prince of Wales and ascended the line of succession.

His father and sovereign’s eldest son, King Charles III, is today the ruler of the United Kingdom and its territories.

George’s younger brother Prince Louis took center stage at Her Majesty’s platinum anniversary last June, making hilarious grimaces at photographers and viewers alike.

The little tot didn’t attend the funeral, and Middleton said he was having trouble understanding the Queen’s death.

Meanwhile, at the funeral, George was seen upset when his great-aunt Sophie, Countess of Wessex, comforted him in the church. Prince Edward’s wife, 57, put her arm around the boy as she stood next to Charlotte and Middleton, 40.

According to Mark Tewksbury, another attendee at the event, the two children were said to be on their best behavior on Monday.

“To little Prince George, he will be one day and he doesn’t really know that yet,” the 54-year-old Olympian said in an interview with People.

“And then I was like, ‘Ah, he just lost his great-grandmother,'” he continued. “[They were] incredibly well-behaved” and they also acted “a bit like kids, a bit like ‘Wow, that’s a lot’.” Prince George sticks his tongue out at the crowd at the Queen’s funeral
