On the first anniversary of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, and Prince William paid a touching tribute to the late monarch.
In a private service held at St Davids Cathedral in Pembrokeshire, Kate Middleton adorned herself with earrings from the Queen’s collection, symbolizing a deep connection to Her Majesty.
The couple arrived at the cathedral by helicopter for this brief yet poignant ceremony. During the service, Kate placed a heartfelt floral arrangement of white roses before a framed portrait of Queen Elizabeth.
Following the ceremony, outside the cathedral, Kate engaged with Patricia Mawuli Porter OBE, a local flying instructor who shared heartwarming stories of the Queen’s kindness. In response, the Princess expressed, “We all have wonderful memories of her, and we have to hold on to them, cherish them.”
This visit by Kate and William to the historic cathedral in South West Wales coincided precisely with the one-year anniversary of the passing of the nation’s longest-reigning monarch. Queen Elizabeth II was 96 years old at the time of her passing at Balmoral. The heartfelt tribute paid by the royal couple serves as a testament to the enduring legacy of the beloved Queen.
