Mum’s out, tongues out.
Prince George was seen sticking out his tongue at photographers following his great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral at Westminster Abbey in London on Monday.
The 9-year-old prince — who is second in the line of succession to the British throne behind his father, Prince William — was seen riding in the back seat of a car following the service when he made the silly face for shutterbugs to snap.
He was joined by his mom, Kate Middleton, his 7-year-old sister, Princess Charlotte, and his stepgrandmother, Queen Consort Camilla.
Aside from this one moment of goofiness, George and his sister were mainly on their best behavior during the late monarch’s funeral.
Attendee Mark Tewksburys said the eldest two children of the Prince and Princess of Wales were “incredibly well-behaved,” adding, “For little Prince George, this will be him one day and he doesn’t really know that yet. And then I thought, ‘Ah, he’s just lost his great-grandmother.’”
George and Charlotte were seen walking in the procession ahead of the Queen’s funeral before taking their seats for the somber service with their parents. Their 4-year-old brother, Prince Louis, was not in attendance, presumably due to his young age.
The little prince and princess appeared to be struggling with the loss of their great-grandmother, who died on Sept. 8 at the age of 96. George was photographed being comforted by his great-aunt Sophie of Wessex and Charlotte was seen breaking down in tears before being comforted by Middleton.
Despite her strong emotions, Charlotte seemed to be following protocol and even helped her older brother follow the rules. She was seen telling George when to bow during the funeral.
Much like his uncle, Prince Harry, back in the day, George has a history of making silly faces at important events. He stole the show with his facial expressions while attending Wimbledon with his parents.
Charlotte also hilariously corrected George’s posture during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebration in June.
George seemed to be amused by Louis’ antics, perhaps knowing that he passed on his habit of making funny faces to his younger bro.
