Sombre Kate Middleton seen for first time since Queen's tragic death | The Sun

KATE Middleton looked sombre on a drive through Windsor this afternoon following the Queen's tragic death.

The Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge wore dark sunglasses and a black top on her way to pick up her children from school.


It is the first time Kate has been seen since Her Majesty's passing at Balmoral yesterday.

She stayed behind in Berkshire with kids George, Charlotte and Louis while William rushed to be by his grandmother's side in Scotland after doctors said they were “concerned” for her health.

He travelled with Prince Andrew, Edward and Sophie Wessex as fears for the monarch grew.

Charles and Camilla were already in the country, and they were later joined by Harry.
