According to People, William and Kate have been weighing up whether to have George have such a big part in the ceremony.
A royal source told the publication they are “cognizant that he is old enough to understand what’s going on,” however, they’re aware that George’s classmates will probably be talking about the event when he returns to school the following week.
A spokesperson for the Prince and Princess of Wales told the magazine, “His parents are very excited and delighted that he is a page.
“It’s something that his parents have thought long and hard about and are very much looking forward to — and I’m sure George is, too.”
George is then expected to join his sister Princess Charlotte, 7, and brother Prince Louis, 4, as the family head from Westminster Abbey back to Buckingham Palace in the carriage procession after the coronation.
The news comes as the Palace unveiled the official invitations for Charles’ coronation, featuring a little hint of what Camilla, Queen Consort’s title will be come May 6.
