While King Charles rests in Balmoral, Kate Middleton and William of England return to work as real workaholics. The Prince and Princess of Wales thanked the volunteers and all Windsor staff for organizing the ceremony in St George's Chapel, which followed the funeral in Westminster Abbey. The first smiles fell, even though William confessed that he is 'requisitioned' by moments of sadness when he thinks of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth - Photo | video
COMFORT - William added that he took comfort in the fact that 'so many people took such care' at the funeral. Kate wore her long black Dolce & Gabbana collarless coat (£ 2,150), and the prince was also in black: as the whole royal family respects the mourning period, which will last until Monday 26 September.
ANNA IS ALSO BACK TO WORK - Upon their arrival, the princes were greeted by a small crowd of subjects, who applauded them warmly. During the period of mourning, the royal family would not have had to face any official commitment, but William decided to make a small exception precisely to celebrate the exceptional participation of all in the ceremonies following the queen's death. And her aunt, Princess Anna, imitated him and with a similar 'mission': she went to Portsmouth, to thank the Navy personnel.
