Kate, the Princess of Wales and Prince William have shared “amazing” memories of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral in a chat with volunteers and stage. The new Welsh royals were in Windsor meeting with people who helped organise the committal service for the Queen.
Kate asked those in attendance if many of those in the crowd on Monday were from Windsor itself.
In response, Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead volunteer ambassadors replied that people had travelled from across the world.
Kate then said: “It’s amazing how many people wanted to come and pay their respects.”
Meanwhile, William told staff moments of sadness “catch [him] out” while he grieves for his grandmother.
The Prince of Wales told staff members it was “comforting that so many people care”, adding the show of support “makes it a lot better”.
The group also spoke about the number of people in the crowds, with one of the logistics staff saying it was about 110,000.
William added: “We did not see the whole town come to a standstill. That’s what we were worried about, that it would disrupt everyone’s lives.”
