Prince William & Princess Kate Middleton Thank Staffers Who Helped with Queen Elizabeth’s Funeral
Prince William, Prince of Wales and Catherine, Princess of Wales (aka Kate Middleton) visit the Windsor Guildhall to thank volunteers and operational staff involved in her Queen Elizabeth II's funeral on Thursday (September 22) in Windsor, UK. According to royal reporter Rebecca English, the royal couple personally thanked "the people who sorted the portaloos [porta potties], bins, moved flowers, programmed the road signs," etc to ensure the late Queen's funeral ran smoothly. If you don't know, the national mourning period for the Queen ended on September 19 after her funeral. However, the King has asked that the royal family have a period of grief that lasts until September 26. So, you may be wondering why the Prince and Princess of Wales are undertaking a royal visit during their continued mourning period? Buckingham Palace released a statement explaining why you may see some royals do official visits over the next few days. Royal reporter Rebecca English added on Twitter, "Buckingham Palace say a small number of engagements will be undertaken during royal mourning to thank those involved in the delivery of HM Queen Elizabeth’s Funeral and associated ceremonial events, and to recognise the service to King and country of those on deployment overseas." If you missed it, a lip reader revealed what Prince Harry and Prince William said to each other at the funeral.
