The Prince and Princess of Wales visited Soho in London…

Prince William reveals how coronation rehearsals with children George, Charlotte and Louis went

When Prince William and Princess Catherine went to the Dog and Duck pub in Soho, the center of London’s West End, on Thursday, they were all smiles.

Prince William discussed how his three children, Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5, felt at the coronation rehearsal on Wednesday while chatting with the ecstatic crowd.

The Prince replied, “Yes they did, we’ve got a few more practices going on keeping us busy!” when asked if they enjoyed their practice run of the big day.

He added, “[I’m] very excited it will be a busy weekend!” as he expressed his own excitement for the historic day.

The royal couple boarded the Elizabeth Line and exited at Tottenham Court Road on their way to the bar. During the trip, Catherine spoke with TFL employees in advance of the busy coronation weekend and echoed her husband’s sentiments.

Yes, there will be a lot going on, she acknowledged. We’re approaching it. We still seem to be trying to line up our ducks, in my opinion.

The husband and wife team traveled by tube from West London’s Acton Main Line to Tottenham Court Road.

While still in the bar, Catherine added that Prince George was particularly looking forward to the momentous occasion, where he will serve as the page of honor. He is actually excited, she remarked. I believe everyone is a little more at ease now that we’ve had a few rehearsals.

She described the local atmosphere as “wonderful,” adding that anticipation for the coronation was “already beginning to build.”

During their visit, William and Catherine even complied by drinking a Mortimer’s Orchard Cider. The first pint of a special coronation cider was also poured by the Prince. He said, “I find the best conversations happen in pubs. “People are less tense. No, you don’t get it in restaurants. With the food, you get it, but not with the conversation.

Prior to the big day on Saturday, the royal couple practiced their entrance at Westminster Abbey with their three young children. They were joined by the King, the Princess Royal, the Queen Consort and her grandsons.
