Prince William and Kate Middleton are among the most loved royal couple and one of the things that people like about them is the fact that they always take the time to talk to everybody. It is during one of these brief conversations that the Price revealed the tradition they have with their children before they depart on one of their visits.
After William’s first official visit of the year in Dubai, during which Kate visited Denmark for a few days, both of them went to Wales on the occasion of St. David’s Day, the patron of the country. It was during this visit, while in the town of Abergavenny, that the Prince answered a question about his children and revealed the tradition the couple created with them.
Local Lynn Brewer told People magazine about her encounter with the royals. During their royal walkabout, greeting locals, Brewer’s first question to them was “How are the children?”. William answered that they are very well and thanked her for the question, then proceeded to explain that, as children do, they are always very curious about where their parents are travelling to. This is how he and Kate decided to start the pre-travel tradition of gathering the children around and then showing them on a map, atlas or globe where exactly their next tour would be.
They are always asking us where we are going and we show them where we are on the map.Prince William
Brewer also talked about how she confessed to the royal couple she and her friend had been waiting outside Abergavenny Market for over two hours, hoping to get a chance to meet them. “But it was worth it”, she said, adding that Kate thanked them for waiting. Another local who got the chance to talk to the Duke and Duchess shared Brewer’s adoration of the royals telling People “They are lovely people, and there was no rush as they walked along talking to people, showing an interest in people and the town”.
