The future king and his brother stole the limelight as they turned out for the Queen ’s annual Christmas lunch today.
Prince George , 6, and Prince Louis took the spotlight as they arrive at Buckingham Palace for the traditional bash.
Prince William and Kate Middleton drove in separate cars to Buckingham Palace, with George sitting in the passenger seat alongside his dad.
Meanwhile Prince Louis, aged just one, was snapped in the back seat of Kate’s car sporting an impressive full head of brown hair.
He appeared to look a little overwhelmed as he stared out of the window at crowds outside the Palace gates.
Meanwhile next to him was his sister Princess Charlotte , 4, who beamed at the crowds as their mum also smiled and greeted them.
George’s front-seat arrival will be seen as a sign of the times as he prepares to one day take over his dad’s future role of King.
Their arrival to the Christmas lunch, which is held for the extended Royal Family, came shortly after Prince Andrew arrived for the big do.
The miserable looking Duke of York was among the first of the family to arrive this morning, days after he stepped down from his royal duties.
The Duke’s car-crash BBC Newsnight interview, over his friendship with paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, resulted in him being “effectively sacked” by the Queen and Prince Charles, according to reports.
He denies the claim made by Epstein’s “sex slave” Virginia Roberts that he had sex with her when she was 17.
Other Royal Family members who were seen arriving at Buckingham Palace were Prince Charles , Camilla, Princess Beatrice, Mike and Zara Tindall, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, Lady Louise Windsor, Prince Edward and James, Viscount Severn.
There was no sign of Prince Harry and Meghan Marble, who have reportedly snubbed spending this Christmas with the royals and decided to spend it in the US with Meghan’s mum instead.
It is reported the Queen uses this Christmas dinner as an opportunity to celebrate the festive holiday with royals who won’t be joining her at her Sandringham estate in Norfolk on December 25.
The festive feast usually seats more than 50 family members and no official photographs are released from the event.
It is reported the children will enjoy their own Christmas dinner in a separate room to the adult royals, run by nannies and palace staff.
The youngsters apparently even have their own entertainer.
The turkey and trimmings lunch at Buckingham Palace usually takes place on the Wednesday before Christmas, shortly before the Queen leaves for Sandringham for the festive season.
