Elaine Gee said the Prince of Wales wanted to make sure his and Kate’s children felt “as normal as possible”.
She told People: “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.”
Ms Gee then said: “Kate and William were both very kind and gentle and genuine. It was very special – definitely a moment I will always treasure.”
