The Princess of Wales is renowned for her endearing rapport with kids, and she responded in the cutest way when one of them reached for her handbag!
In the Welsh village of Aberfan on Friday, Catherine stopped to chat with mother-of-two Lucy Williams as little Daniel, age one, reached for her £675 black Mulberry bag.
The humorous incident happened at the conclusion of Prince William and Catherine’s visit to the Aberfan Memorial Garden on Friday. This location was the scene of a disaster in 1966 that claimed 144 lives, including 116 schoolchildren.
The 30-year-old Mrs. Williams, whose mother-in-law survived the tragedy, spoke about the “memorable” encounter after the visit.
He just stole her handbag, she said of her son. She let him play with it after he developed an interest in it.
The words “priceless – something to remember” were used by her mother-in-law, Carole Williams.
From Thursday to Friday, William and Catherine attended events in the South Wales Valleys and Mid Wales.
On Thursday, the couple participated in training exercises and tried their hand at abseiling with the Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team, a volunteer-run organization that responds to calls throughout the year, 24 hours a day.
Later, the two met up with mountaineers at the close-by Dowlais Rugby Club, where they fed volunteers pizza from the Little Dragon Pizza Van.
Prior to King Charles’ coronation on May 6, the Prince and Princess will commemorate their 12th wedding anniversary on Saturday, May 29.
