George, Charlotte & Louis Practice Their Mini Royal Waves on Coronation Day (& Gan-Gan Would Be Proud)

Queen Elizabeth II couldn't be with her surviving family at the coronation today, but we know she would've been proud of three of her great-grandchildren—Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5—who showed off their best royal waves.

The three were seen waving to the crowds throughout the day as they rode with their parents, Prince William, 40, and Kate Middleton, 41. Perhaps one of the best moments was a video that saw Prince Louis waving through the window on his way to Westminster Abbey, which was shared by the @RoyalCentral Twitter account.

At this point, Prince Louis has become a master royal waver, but it wasn't that long ago that his older sister had to give him a little guidance (remember that iconic video where she subtly told him to chill?).

Of course, Princess Charlotte showed off her own waving skills, and she looked like a pro in various pictures from the coach headed to Buckingham Palace.

Although he had a special role during the ceremony, Prince George rode (and waved) along with his younger siblings after the coronation on the way to the palace.

In one video shared by GB News, we got to see all five members of the family waving to the crowds, and we loved seeing them together.

This isn't the first time we've seen Prince William and Princess Catherine's kids show off their royal waves. Just last year, during the late Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee, the trio rode in a carriage together and waved to the crowds as a kick-off for the Trooping the Colour parade.

They are growing up so quickly.
