Princess Charlotte, 6, and Princess Beatrice, 33, shared an adorable moment at Westminster Abbey yesterday.

Prince William and Kate Middleton's daughter joined the rest of the Royal Family at a special memorial service for the late Prince Philip on Tuesday.

Prince George, who was also in attendance, and his sister sat beside their parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, for the service.

However, it was the moment Charlotte and Beatrice made eye contact that royal fans were treated to a rare and candid moment between the pair.

During one of the hymns, while singing along, Charlotte turned to look over at Beatrice, and was met with a beaming smile from the Princess.

Charlotte's reaction to the smile was adorable, as she smirked and looked away quickly, looking delighted.

Royal fans were quick to spot the exchange, with one person commenting on Twitter: "Such a sweet moment between Princess Charlotte and Princess Beatrice, just look at them."

Another wrote: "Adorable look between Beatrice & Charlotte!"

Watch the moment here:

According to Darren Stanton, body language and behavioural expert, the moment shared between the two royals shows a "deep bond".

Stanton told FEMAIL: "It was fascinating to see how Beatrice sensed Charlotte's look in her direction and it suggests the two definitely share a deep bond with each other."

Earlier in the service for her late grandfather, Princess Beatrice was very emotional and could be seen breaking down at one point.

In heartbreaking footage, she could be seen crying before covering her face with the order of service.

Her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, was pictured placing a supportive arm around Beatrice as she gathered herself.

The day was understandably hard for the Queen as well, who was also pictured looking very emotional during the service.

At one point, when the attendees were singing God Save Our Queen, Her Majesty appeared to be welling up.
