A little schoolgirl had a sweet time this Thursday as she and her classmates were present in the crowd who came to gather outside Sandringham Palace, the Queen’s residence in Norfolk.

The new Princess of Wales, who was browsing with her husband Prince William, the tributes left in front of the residence of the late monarch, spotted her in the crowd. Elizabeth, in uniform, held a bouquet of flowers and a corgi teddy bear.

Footage shows the eight-year-old talking to Kate, before she asks him to go through the security gates to place his teddy bear and flowers.

The girl explained what Kate Middleton asked her: “I went with her to drop off the flowers and the corgi. She said, ‘Where do you think we should put the flowers?’ and I said: “We should put them there.”

Elizabeth’s headmaster, Gregory Hill of Howard Junior School in King’s Lynn, added: “Elizabeth was overwhelmed, she cried with joy to have been chosen”.

“It’s just a wonderful, amazing opportunity.”

Mr Hill said the Queen’s death also had “touched a young generation”.

He stated: “The older generation obviously knew the Queen for longer, but young children who haven’t known the Queen for a long time on the throne are still very moved by her passing and really want to do their best to celebrate her life and legacy. and never forget it.”
