Prince George makes adorable gesture to Prince Louis at Christmas service

Prince George was seen making an adorable gesture towards his younger brother as they headed into the royals annual Christmas Day service this year.

The brothers were joined by many members of the Royal Family as they took part in their first Christmas Day walk and church service since the pandemic on Sunday (December 25).

Greeting members of the public who turned out to wish them well, the Prince and Princess of Wales proudly walked with their children George, Louis and Princess Charlotte as members of the Firm made their way to the festive service, reports the Mirror.

However, making their way inside of the church, Prince George appeared to be seen giving Prince Louis a protective guiding hand as they went.

George, nine, and seven-year-old Charlotte have carried out the walk before, but this year was the first year that four-year-old Louis joined them.

However, keen to show his brother the way George could be seen appearing to lend a hand to his little sibling, who wore shorts and long socks, as he clutched his mum Kate's hand.

It also marked the first time that King Charles led the family to church - with him hosting Christmas at Sandringham for the first time this year since the death of his mother the Queen in September.

Charles led the way alongside Camilla in blue with William, Kate and their children following behind.

Among others that were spotted were Queen Consort Camilla, Zara and Mike Tindall, Edward and Sophie Wessex with Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn as well as Princess Beatrice, her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and his son Wolfie.

They were greeted outside the church by the Reverend Canon Dr Paul Rhys Williams before they climbed the steps to the church and the National Anthem was sung before the first hymn, O Come, All Ye Faithful.

This is the first royal Christmas at Sandringham since 2019.

Due to the Covid pandemic, the late Queen spent the festive period at Windsor Castle two years in a row – the first with the Duke of Edinburgh, and separated from her wider family in lockdown.
