Prince George, second in line to the throne at only 9 years old, has been announced as one of his grandfather’s four pages of honor; the queen consort will have four pages of honor of her own. All eight children will wear matching scarlet uniforms and carry small, ceremonial swords as they form part of the king’s coronation procession at Westminster Abbey, which will be about a third of the size it was for the late Queen Elizabeth’s coronation in 1953.

Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4, will attend the coronation but are expected to sit among the congregation. Whether Prince Louis will repeat his show-stealing performance of hilarious facial expressions, last seen from the balcony of Buckingham Palace during his great-grandmother’s Platinum Jubilee, remains to be seen.
