How George, Charlotte and Louis have been dealing with the death of their great-grandmother was one of the things royal fans were interested to know. And now, we may have a glimpse into how they’re coping.
On Saturday, Prince William and Kate joined by Prince Harry and Meghan stepped out to see the tributes and flowers which have been left at Cambridge Gate following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
Dressed in black, the foursome were seen greeting onlookers and emotionally taking in the flowers and other memorial items left for the late Queen for about 40 minutes.
During the walkabout outside Windsor Castle, Kate spoke to wellwishers with one onlooker sharing that she heard Kate tell the children next to her what her youngest son, Louis, had said about the Queen’s death.
She said Kate told the children: “Louis said at least Grannie is with great grandpa now.”
Another well-wisher said ‘It was really nice’ to see William, Harry, Kate and Meghan together.”
She said: “I felt so emotional and I felt the Queen would have loved it. I just hope in the future they remain like that and that the brothers come together, and the families.”
Queen Elizabeth II died peacefully at Balmoral Castle on Thursday, September 8th. Two days after her death, her grandson Prince William has released an emotional statement mourning her loss.
“On Thursday, the world lost an extraordinary leader, whose commitment to the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth was absolute,” he wrote in part. “So much will be said in the days ahead about the meaning of her historic reign.
“I, however, have lost a grandmother. And while I will grieve her loss, I also feel incredibly grateful. I have had the benefit of The Queen’s wisdom and reassurance into my fifth decade. My wife has had twenty years of her guidance and support. My three children have got to spend holidays with her and create memories that will last their whole lives,” he continued.
“She was by my side at my happiest moments. And she was by my side during the saddest days of my life. I knew this day would come, but it will be some time before the reality of life without Grannie will truly feel real,” William added.
