Prince William and Princess Kate had an engagement on Thursday afternoon with the goal of thanking the people who helped prepare everything in Windsor ahead of Queen Elizabeth’s committal service.
The hour-long engagement, which was held at the Windsor Guildhall, saw William and Kate thank a dozen volunteers who were responsible for making the day, and the days leading up to it, so “extraordinary”.
The royal couple revealed that they’ve been keeping an eye on the preparations, with Kate saying: “When we’ve been doing the school run, we’ve been able to see the preparations going up. We’ve seen it growing.”
“It must have been quite a mission. Having gone backwards and forwards last week, we could see it slowly growing. It seemed so well organised.”
The Princess of Wales also let us in on a question that has been bugging her little royals, letting us know that Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have been particularly “beady-eyed”, spotting and asking about the security drones flying around the area.
During a walkabout with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, William and Kate have also revealed that the children have continued going to school during this difficult week, hoping to give them a sense of “continuity” and “normality”.
Elaine Gee, a school teacher from Woking, spoke with Prince William on this topic, later stating for reporters that “Prince William spoke about George, Charlotte and Louis, saying that they were trying to keep some sense of continuity for them at school and keep things as normal as possible.”
