Kate, Princess of Wales, has been dubbed the “Children’s Princess” after she shared a heartwarming moment with a schoolboy who gave her a posy of flowers. The Princess of Wales smiled widely as four-year-old Theo Crompton handed her the bouquet of pink roses as she visited the the RNLI Holyhead Lifeboat Station, in Holyhead, Wales.
Kate and Prince William crouched down to accept the flowers and talk to Theo, who was clearly excited to meet a real life prince and princess.
There was one special moment when the Kate and Theo stood in front of eachother, mouths wide open as the princess accepted her bouquet.
Royal fans took to Twitter to comment on the heartwarming moment, dubbing Kate a “Children’s Princess”.
Kayla Adams posted alongside a picture of Kate and Theo: “The Children’s Princess.”
While the Welsh capital of Cardiff was where Prince William, aged eight, carried out his first royal engagement alongside his late mother, Princess Diana.
William and Kate will now be making more regular visits to Wales as part of their roles as prince and princess, and are expected back in the country before Christmas.
It comes as it emerged the Prince of Wales has no plans to stage an investiture ceremony to formally mark receiving his new title.
This is despite William’s father being officially invested with the title Prince of Wales by the Queen during an event staged at Caernarfon Castle in July 1969.
During the elaborate ceremony the Queen placed a coronet on Charles’ head and helped arrange robes around his shoulders, and he pledged allegiance to his mother with the words: “I, Charles, Prince of Wales do become your liege man of life and limb”.
But it is understood William has no plans for “any kind” of an investiture like the ceremony staged for the King, and is focused on deepening the trust and respect of the people of Wales over time.
A royal source said in the aftermath of the Queen’s death: “The new Princess of Wales appreciates the history associated with this role but will understandably want to look to the future as she creates her own path.”
A few days after the Queen’s death, William spoke via telephone with Mark Drakeford, First Minister of Wales, a conversation where the father-of-three mentioned his “deep affection for Wales”.
