Despite the announced period of mourning, Prince William and Duchess Kate showed up again in Windsor on Thursday. There they thanked the attendants who were deployed at the Queen’s state funeral.
Following the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022) last Monday (September 19), the British Royal Family retired as part of a period of mourning for the time being. Although it is expected to last until next Monday, Prince William (40) and Duchess Kate (40) showed up again on Thursday at a public meeting. Together they thanked Windsor volunteers who organized the funeral of the deceased monarch on September 8 in a short time.
Both chose black outfits for their visit to the Windsor Guildhall: Kate showed up in a noble coat dress with gold buttons from Dolce & Gabbana. William wore a simple suit with a white shirt and tie. Despite the mourning phase, the two still smiled at the helpers while expressing their gratitude and appreciation.
