Kate and Prince William were given a roaring welcome to Wales on Tuesday, as they paid their first visit to the nation since becoming the Princess and Prince of Wales. Among the dozens of people they stopped to speak with were many children, including one who attracted the attention of Kate.
Pointing out he was wearing a tie, Kate told the boy: “Do you tie your own tie? Well done you!”
The princess, who following the accession to the throne of King Charles III also gained the title of Duchess of Cornwall, went on to reveal she has been teaching her eldest son how to do the knot of a tie as he is now required to wear one at his new school, Lambrook.
She said: “I’ve been teaching George because he has got to wear a tie now for school, so I’m having to teach him how to do it.
“But well done, you’ve done a good job with your tie. Nice to meet you.”
Among other children met by Kate on Tuesday was also two-year-old Charlotte, the daughter of Reverend Steven Bunting, who leads the redeveloped church and community hub St Thomas Church and his wife Rachel.
Chatting with the adorable toddler, Kate said: “Your name is Charlotte? I have a Charlotte at home too.
“Do you know where my Charlotte is? She’s in school with her brothers George and Louis.”
Kate and Prince William’s children started attending classes at Lamrbook School earlier this month.
Their first full day of lessons was on September 8, the same day of Queen Elizabeth II’s passing.
Prior to moving to Lambrook, Prince George and Princess Charlotte had attended Thomas’s Battersea in London, while Prince Louis was a pupil at Willcocks Nursery School.
The change of school was announced in late August by Kensington Palace, whose statement read: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have today announced that Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will attend Lambrook School in Berkshire from September 2022.
“Their Royal Highnesses are hugely grateful to Thomas’s Battersea where George and Charlotte have had a happy start to their education since 2017 and 2019 respectively and are pleased to have found a school for all three of their children which shares a similar ethos and values to Thomas’s.”
Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis’s first full day of school was marked with a photoshoot held as the family of five was arriving at Lambrook’s entrance and being greeted by Headmaster Jonathan Perry.
While Prince George and Prince Louis were not wearing a tie on those pictures, the second-in-line to the throne has been spotted several times in the past wearing the accessory.
Most recently, the nine-year-old boy donned a tie at the state funeral of the Queen, held on Monday 19.
George was one of the youngest attendees at the sombre event alongside his sister Charlotte, who turned seven in May.
Among the other great-grandchildren of the Queen in attendance at the state funeral were Zara and Mike Tindall’s firstborn Mia, eight, and Peter Phillips’ daughters Isla, 10 and Savannah, 11.
Prince George also donned a suit and tie when attending official events alongside his parents, including the men’s single final match at Wimbledon in July this year and the Euro 2020 final at Wembley Stadium in 2021.
Kate opened up about George learning a new skill while visiting Holyhead RNLI station in Anglesey.
This engagement reminded the couple of their first-ever joint visit in February 2011, when they launched a new RNLI lifeboat at Trearddur Bay, also in Anglesey.
Referring to the event, Prince William told crowd member Pauline Bentley: “She (Kate) smashed the bottle. It really works.”
Anglesey was Kate and William’s first home as a married couple.
The pair lived there from 2010 to 2013, the period during which Prince William served as an RAF Search & Rescue pilot.
