The new Princess of Wales, 40, has shared how Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven, and Prince Louis, three, are coping after the Queen's death.
During a walk in Sandringham on Thursday, Kate and Prince William interacted with well wishers gathered outside the Norfolk estate before the Princess gave an update on the couple's three children, according to royal correspondent Roya Nikkhah.
In a Twitter post, she said: “The Princess of Wales told a well wisher that Prince George understands the loss of their great-grandmother, but Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis less so.”
While William said: “I’m learning that she was everyone’s grandmother – the way people have reacted,” Roya added.
Days prior to the royal's walkabout, royal fan Banita Ranow, 28, told Mail Online that she heard Kate talking to a group of children outside Windsor Castle about her youngest son Louis' thoughts on his “Grannie’s” death.
She claims Kate was “welling up” as she said: “Louis said at least Grannie is with great grandpa now.”
The couple has tried to keep a sense of normality for their children by sending them to school despite a very difficult mourning period for the Royal Family as well as adjusting to life without Her Majesty.
The young siblings started at Lambrook school last week, only a day before their grandmother died on 8 September.
The royal children were greeted by their new headmaster on their first day at the private establishment which costs up to £6,999 per term. William and Kate could be forking out more than £50,000 a year in total for their three youngsters.
A Mail Online source said the Cambridge children were particularly excited to all be going to the same school for the first time.
"They're really excited about starting a new school together, and I think mum and dad are too," they said.
A mourner who met Prince William outside Windsor on Saturday, 10 September claims the Prince of Wales told her why they'd decided to keep the kids in school.
Elaine Gee, a teacher from Wokingham, told People: "William spoke about George, Charlotte and Louis saying that they were trying to keep some sense of continuity for them at school and keep things as normal as possible."
Despite the school offering to board, both permanent and flexible, the trio will be sleeping at their new Adelaide Cottage home – on the grounds of Windsor Castle where the late sovereign had spent the majority of the year.
