The Princess of Wales told her three children the tragic news of the Queen’s death, and she has now made public what her youngest son, Prince Louis, said in response.
One onlooker who witnessed Kate speaking to well-wishers during the walkabout in front of Windsor Castle said she overheard Kate telling the children next to her what the four-year-old had said about the Queen’s death.
Kate, according to her, reportedly said to the kids: “Louis said at least Grannie is with great grandpa now.”
According to reports, Kate started to “well up” during the exchange.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were invited to accompany the Prince of Wales and the Princess of Wales on their Saturday stroll around Windsor Castle.
When William and Harry and their wives Kate and Meghan exited their car together, there was a moment of stunned silence on the castle grounds.
The royals, who were all dressed in black, appeared solemn as they paused to shake the hands of distraught supporters who were lined up behind a barrier. As they maneuvered through the throngs, they were surrounded by police security.
While Princes William and Harry wore black suits, the two royal ladies both chose classy black dresses.
When William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan were pictured shaking hands with members of the public, the crowds cheered.
William was once presented with a miniature Paddington Bear toy after the late monarch won over the public with a skit starring the beloved character during her Jubilee celebrations.
After spending 40 minutes interacting with the public, where they were given flowers, balloons, and other gifts, they arrived and left in the same car.
