Prince William and Kate Middleton met with the queen and other high-ranking members of the royal family on Tuesday outside Windsor Castle. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were on a two-day Royal Train Tour, and their last stop was Windsor Castle.
The Queen and Prince William reportedly shared an adorable moment, as he and Kate said goodbye to family members.
This was the first time that older members of the royal family have met since the pandemic began earlier this year.
WHAT DID PRINCE WILLIAM TELL THE QUEEN?
According to People, when the Queen climbed the stairs to return to the castle after reuniting with her family and other key workers, William was heard calling her and saying, “Bye, Grandma.”
In addition to Prince William, Kate and the Queen, the meeting was attended by Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla of Cornwall, Prince Edward, Sophie, the Countess of Wessex and Princess Anne. During the reunion in the ring of the Castle of Windsor, the Royal Family thanked the local volunteers and key workers, who will be spreading the holiday cheer for the next few days.
Unlike in previous years, this year the royal family will not be spending the next Christmas holidays at the Queen’s Sandringham estate. The Queen will spend Christmas with the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip in Windsor, where they have been isolated amid the ongoing pandemic.
During the closure, Windsor Castle had come to be known as HMS Bubble and was operating with minimal staff to minimize exposure to the monarch.
