Homepage - Royals

On September 8, Queen Elizabeth II died at the age of 96. Visiting Windsor to meet members of the public who came to pay their respects, Kate Middleton spoke about her son Louis' reaction when he learned of the Queen's passing.

Tributes poured in for Queen Elizabeth II. After a 70-year-reign, the Queen died ‘peacefully’ at the age of 96 in Balmoral, Scotland, the royal palace announced on Thursday September 8, 2022. While the public mourned her passing, they then celebrated the coronation of King Charles III. The role for Charles started with a poignant first speech, where the King paid tribute to his ‘dear mama’, but also announced the new statuses of several members of his family, including Camilla, as well as William, who is now heir to the throne, and Kate. He also took the opportunity to affirm his love for Harry and daughter-in-law Meghan Markle, with whom relations have been strained since they stepped down from royal duties three years ago. Charles has recently asked parliament to change some of the royal roles.

William, Harry, Kate and Meghan reunited

While relations between the two brothers seem to have been tense for months, they put their quarrels aside on Saturday, September 10, to meet the public in Windsor. A first joint walkabout for Princes William and Harry, along with Kate and Meghan, to greet the onlookers who have been paying tribute en masse to Elizabeth II since the announcement of her death. ‘It was really nice to see them together,’ one of them told journalist Roya Nikkhah, who relayed it on X. It provided the opportunity for passers-by to exchange a few warm words with the couples, as the new Princess of Wales did with a group of children.

‘Grannie is with Great-Grandpa now’

Kate Middleton revealed how her youngest son, Prince Louis, reacted to the news of the death of his great-grandmother. ‘At least Grannie is with Great-Grandpa now,’ he said when his parents told him the sad news. The young Prince had been particularly close with the Queen during her jubilee. Side by side on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, Elizabeth II and Prince Louis exchanged a few words about Trooping the Colour. ‘Are the red arrows coming?’ asked the boisterous little boy to his great-grandmother. To which the latter replied: ‘I hope so.’
