Kate Middleton was gracious enough to help a small girl who wished to place a plush Corgi dog at the Queen’s feet.
To show their admiration for the royal family, thousands of people gathered in front of Sandringham House’s front gates. For over an hour, Prince William and Kate Middleton remained to greet the gathering mourners.
Elizabeth Sulkovska, who is just eight years, and her friends from Howard Junior School in King’s Lynn were there in the crowd as Kate turned to look around.
In a touching gesture, the Princess of Wales accompanied the young girl as she placed a plush corgi and a bouquet of flowers among the tributes for the departed.
Elizabeth’s head teacher, Gregory Hill, claimed that when she learned she had been chosen, she broke down in tears of joy.
“What a wonderful and magnificent opportunity has presented itself,”
Young children who haven’t seen the Queen occupy the throne for very long are nonetheless deeply impacted by her loss and truly want to make every effort to commemorate her life and legacy and never forget her, he continued. He commented that “the elder generation certainly known the Queen for longer.” The younger generation has also been affected.
Some of the kids at the school made tributes in the form of corgis in addition to paddington bears. Both of these tributes were observed of by Her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales.
The tribute made reference to the entertaining skit that the Queen did for her Platinum Jubilee earlier this year as a means to honor her.
After the Queen’s coffin was carried in a procession from the palace to Westminster Hall, members of the royal family, including King Charles, Prince William, and Prince Harry, followed.
In the hall, where the funeral service was officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, members of the Queen’s family took their seats in front of the purple-draped coffin.
Many more people were joining the line of mourning waiting to pay their respects to the queen at Westminster Hall every hour.
