Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis had been ‘beady-eyed’ about spotting drones in the sky which were used as part of the security operation for the Queen’s funeral, the Princess of Wales revealed yesterday.
Kate, 40, was speaking to the team of staff and volunteers at Windsor Guildhall, Berkshire, who were involved in coordinating the funeral services for Her late Majesty on Monday.
She explained Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven, and Prince Louis, four, were particularly observant about the drones in the sky.
The Prince and Princess of Wales previously said they wanted to ‘keep things as normal as possible’ for their three children following the death of the Queen, according to reports.

The Prince, 40, added that while they hadn’t been roused by any of the 3am rehearsals in preparation for the funeral, younger ears in the family may have been awoken.
It comes as Prince William could be seen studying a Paddington tribute to the Queen on a phone during his first royal engagement after the late monarch’s funeral yesterday.
He and Kate thanked people who had worked to stage Queen Elizabeth’s funeral in Windsor.

The couple went on to share a swish video from the engagement on their official Instagram page, posting: ‘Thank you to all those who have worked so tirelessly to ensure that everyone visiting Windsor over the past two weeks has had a safe and positive experience.
‘It was a pleasure to meet just a small number of staff and volunteers today – we are hugely grateful for all of your efforts.’
In the clip, Kate and Prince William could be seen beaming as they spoke with volunteers, as well as studying tributes to the late monarch.
Elsewhere on the engagement, the Princess of Wales said she believed the late Queen was looking down on them when five rainbows appeared in the sky over Balmoral.

Kate, who opted to wear her recycled £2,150 Dolce & Gabbana collarless long coat in black, made the comment as she and William thanked people who had worked to stage Queen Elizabeth’s funeral in Windsor.
It came as the Royals remarked at seeing the colourful weather phenomenon as they spent time in Scotland.
The Prince of Wales said the unusual sight had left them surprised, adding ‘In Scotland, how many rainbows turned up? You hardly ever see rainbows up there, but there were five.’ Kate smiled as she replied: ‘Her Majesty was looking down on us.’
And during the engagement, which was the first in person engagement for the Prince and Princess of Wales since the state funeral, William said he found himself ‘choked up’ when he saw Paddington Bear tributes to his grandmother, but had found comfort in the public outpouring of support for the Royal Family.

The stunning skies seemed to say a last goodbye to the monarch, on Sunday, who has been a central figurehead of the country for over 70 years, and Britain’s longest reigning monarch.
Elizabeth was synonymous with Windsor Castle, where rainbows also appeared, and where she spent much of her time especially after the death of her beloved husband, Prince Philip, in April last year.
And the rainbows were seen also overhead the Queue, which saw around 250,000 mourners lining up throughout the night to see the Queen lying in state.
Her Majesty also gave her name to the tower which holds the bell of Big Ben, which was renamed the Elizabeth Tower in 2012 to mark her Diamond Jubilee, and also saw the stunning phenomenon.
