Prince William and Catherine, Princess of Wales, wow the crowd with a performance in Windsor just days after Queen Elizabeth's state funeral. There, the new Prince of Wales reveals what things still bring him to tears two weeks after the death of his grandmother.

Queen Elizabeth, † 96, has found her final resting place. On Monday, September 19, 2022, high-ranking international guests came together in London's Westminster Abbey to mourn the record monarch with the British royal family and to pay their last respects. After that, the official mourning period for the British royals began, to which they will retire until September 26th. Prince William, 40, and Catherine, Princess of Wales, 40, still take the time to thank the hard-working funeral workers during an unannounced visit to Windsor.

Prince William makes emotional confession

At their first appointment since the state funeral, the couple is approachable and, above all, emotional, as in the past few weeks. Among other things, Prince William admits which moments still move him to tears two weeks after the death of his beloved grandmother.

"It's the things you don't expect that touch you," he explains, according to the Daily Mail. The Paddington tributes in particular gave him a "lump in his throat". It is "very comforting" that so many people are taking part, he adds. "There are certain moments that catch you unprepared," said the 40-year-old. "You're prepared for anything, but certain moments surprise you."

Prince William interrupts mourning period

It was actually expected that the royal family would not attend any public appointments during their mourning period. In the past two weeks since Queen Elizabeth's death, they had held numerous appointments and ceremonies in front of the world public.

However, on Wednesday 21 September, William resumed his duties in the service of the Crown and delivered his first speech since the death of his grandmother. Actually, he should have personally traveled to New York for the Earthshot Prize summit, but the date fell during the period of mourning. Instead, the father of three sent a video message to the Big Apple, in which he also honored Queen Elizabeth with touching words.
