Since the Queen's death, Kate has been pictured dressed all in black while picking the children up from Lambrook School in Berkshire, near their new home in Windsor.

A mourner who met Prince William outside Windsor on Saturday, September 10 claims the Prince of Wales told her why they 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."

George, Charlotte and Louis only started at their new school one day before the Queen's death.

The family were pictured heading towards the school on their first day, with William describing his family as "the gang" as he dropped off his three children on their first day with Kate.

The school's headmaster Jonathan Perry met the family at the entrance, stepping forward to greet them.

The Princess of Wales, who appeared to know Mr Perry and his wife well after the long process of choosing the right school, greeted them like an old friend, saying: "Nice to see you, Mr Perry!"

The youngsters told how they were "excited" to start their new school together, as they shook their headmaster's hand.
