Support For Queen Elizabeth's State Funeral
Prince William and Princess of Wales hit the Army Training Center in Pirbright, the holding area for service personnel. The facility is amenable to troops in state rehearsing for their roles before heading into London to deliver Ceremonial aid to Her Majesty's State Funeral.
As per the Kensington Palace, 28 members of the Australian Defense Force, 64 members of the Canadian Armed Forces, and 25 members of the New Zealand Defense Force are present and will participate in the State Funeral. William and Kate visit with commanders and each nation's squadron. Kate intermingled with them as they laughed and smiled during the visit.
The Tribute To Queen
The visit comes one day after the royal couple stepped out on Thursday to view floral bouquets, balloons, and tributes left by public members at Sandringham in Norfolk, England. The outing marked the couple's first solo appearance since becoming the Prince and Princess of Wales, titles given to the couple by William's father, King Charles III, after Her Majesty passed away on September 8.
In pics from the day, William and Kate can chat with witnesses while fetching flowers and cards. Kate and William wore black dresses; the princess was in a black dress with a long overcoat, while the prince wore a black suit.
William and Kate's out-of-town trip also came on the same day thousands of mourners gathered in the historic London queue to pay their respects to Her Majesty. Among them: was David Beckham, who waited in line for a whopping 13 hours before growing emotional as he walked past the queen's coffin.
