Prince William (40) and Princess Kate (40) are doing everything in their power to raise their children after the death of Queen Elizabeth II. The loss for Prince George (9), Princess Charlotte (7) and Prince Louis (4) weighs heavily: The mini-royals had a special bond with their great-grandmother.
As part of the 40-minute Surprise walk in front of Windsor Castle father of three, William, told a well-wisher in the crowd about his family. Elaine Gee, 58, a teacher from Wokingham, spoke to the prince about the difficult task of explaining the Queen's death to her primary school pupils. “I told him I work at a school. It was a strange year: first we celebrated the anniversary, now everything has changed. That's what we're talking about,' Gee told People magazine - and also revealed how William reacted: 'He talked about George, Charlotte and Louis and said that they were trying to keep some level of continuity at school and keeping things as normal as possible,' said the 58-year-old.
'Catherine thanked me and said the whole nation felt it,' Gee recalls meeting the new Princess of Wales. 'They were both very kind, gentle and sincere. It was something very special - definitely a moment I will always remember.”
Prince William and Kate were during their walk by Prinz Harry (37) and Duchess Meghan (41) accompanied after William invited the California-based couple to - a rare moment of unity after many months of tension between the two brothers and their wives. (lkr)
